The Front Bottoms // 05.14.16
The Front Bottoms on tour last year with Diet Cig and Brick + Mortar at Cat's Cradle in Carborro, NC. I'm a huge fan and they're one of my favorite bands, probably right behind Say Anything who I originally saw them on tour with a couple years ago. If you like honest punk music to start a dance party to, you'd probably love this band. I'm attaching this music video specifically because it was shot in Fairbanks, AK at Chena Hot Springs when they played at UAF. If you didn't know this about me, I was born and raised in Alaska and I moved to NC only a few years ago when my husband got stationed here. Anyways, I remember going to Chena Hot Springs when I was kid, and I was so pissed that I wasn't old enough to go in the hot springs, so I had to go in the pool inside and then I got some random person's earring that fell out in the pool stuck in my foot. I'm going to pretend this is how much fun I would have had if I got to play in the hot springs. On another note, back in my day *shakes fist angrily at youngsters* we never had my favorite bands come to AK and it was super bittersweet to see they went to flipping Fairbanks of all places after I left home. 80% stoked for music fans there now, 20% irrationally upset I couldn't see them in my home state after I've gotten to see them more times here than I would have back home.
Btdubbs if you watch the video, "seadog" is actually C-dog, their guitarist/trumpeter/keys dude, but it's more fun to think of it as seadog (common nickname for a seal) as in "And then the seadog busted in, he was out all night getting chased by cops" like I originally thought.
