Because man can not live on angst alone, every once in a while we need to bring you something a little light and fluffy. So like a giant pink ball of cotton candy we bring you the oxymoron of Pop Punk.
Yellowcard visited Philadelphia for the first time in 6 years playing before a sold out crowd at the TLA on South Street.
The crowd of teens and twenty-somethings lined up well before 6:00 PM to get a good spot for a rather intimate concert setting. Yellowcard played a well-rounded mix of their older favorites through songs from their latest full-length, When You’re Through Thinking, Say Yes, released via Hopeless Records earlier this year. This tour and new album marks an end to band’s hiatus after 2007’s Paper Walls, as the band moved to different corners of the US to persue individual endeavors. Yellowcard began collaborating again in 2010 via email, slowly piecing together this new 10-song LP. This current tour outing wraps up in the US on Nov 18th at the House Of Blues in Los Angeles before the band embarks on full European run kicking off in Glasgow, United Kingdom on November 28th.
We know you are here for the pictures, without further ado..

Go Radio has been seeing some success touring with the Vans Warped Tour this past summer and Soundwave Counter Revolution in Australia. They did a good job of warming up the crowd and proved that once again, pop punk fans love covers of “Rolling in the Deep.” Go Radio signed autographs and posed for pictures with adoring fans after their set.
Supporting their recently released Bad Habits on Fearless Records, Every Avenue mixed up new songs and old to the delight of the crowd.
The crowd was pumped as the house lights dimmed and the thunderous bass pounded. The excitement rose and out came Yellowcard. The crush to the front of the stage was intense as people all wanted to get a little closer to the band. Crowd surfing, screaming, and even moshing fans were all present and accounted for.
