Day #423 the Vaccines - All In White
Brand: Gilden Softstyle
Source: What can i say , i have a huge soft spot for this band. Is a soft spot the opposite of a hard on? Like when you say that cop has a “hard on for me,” and is always trying to catch me slipping? Perhaps the use of the term Soft spot is a derivative of that term. who knows. like i say often on this blog its all a conscious stream of typing here. you get it as i think it, no going back.
Back to Soft Spots. I saw Vaccines a few years back, and what can i say i found them to be completely entertaining. Very punk but, not your typical punk. I would use the term pop punk here but that term conjures up dumb kids with tight pants looking sad with a bad haircut, and a Fall Out Boy shirt on. But what I MEAN is more like punks who play a more pop version of punk..Like a lighter operation ivy. I dunno, but somehow the term pop punk needs to be taken back so we can use it again. or maybe a new term, like “More Pop Punk.” I dunno i m just riffing here.
So to the point of this post, i just realized that the Vaccines are playing next week and somehow i slept on it (prolly because of FYF) but now its sold out. SO i had to email an old friend out of the blue asking for tickets which i HATE doing, and normally i would say fuck it, but thats how i feel about this band. I was willing to risk looking slimy for a small moment to go support a band that i love. I mean they have to know they will get at least one t-shirt purchase out of me right? so it isn’t all that bad..I dunno we shall see. I guess if the 14th comes and you don’t see another Vaccines post up here you will know i didn’t get in.
And while i am at it, they have a new record out, called “Come Of Age” its a damn fine album and if it is on Spotify ill list it below. if not ill put up the old record. UPDATE: nope but some singles are on there so ill make you a playlist.
Wish me luck.
