Today our featured band is The Menzingers and they are incredible. They have this true old school punk rock sound wrapped in an indie rock vibe. They are definitely a breath of fresh in air in the music scene today and they have been garnering quite a lot of high praises. Their song, I Don’t Wanna Be An Asshole Anymore really grabbed my attention from the first time I heard it. It brought back memories of sitting around parking lots with old friends listening to Social Distortion or Sonic Youth, trying to make sense of what the future held for us newly adults at the time. The music became our playlist of our life and that is exactly how I can see The Menzingers being that for the youth of today. Yet, their style is inviting to any age and would have a strong fanbase that spans generations.
They will be heading out on tour with Taking Back Sunday in February and make sure to not miss them! The energy of this band has the audience bouncing off the walls. We look forward to catching them as they stop in San Francisco in March. We will make sure to bring you our coverage.
