Scenes From A (Times Square) Restaurant











Here we go with the pop/punk again! Last night I (and my friend Stevie) attended the Forever The Sickest Kids album release (new album is – This Weekend: Friday) party at touristy Planet Hollywood in Times Square.

A super intimate setting with no more then 100 of their dedicated fans which was made up of 95% screaming teenage girls – holy converse (every color in the rainbow).

The team of 6 sat in high legged bar stools on a platform that just fit them all.  With acoustic guitars in hand they played 3 songs – 2 new and 1 old – for the crowd.  They answered questions, joked around and even hung after to take pictures and sign autographs.

After seeing them perform at The Bamboozle Festival last May and not knowing much about them, I was excited to see them in a smaller setting.  They killed their performance at the festival and even from way, way, way in back they still drew me in with their antics on stage.

FTSK seems to have a pretty standard following for their genre of music but they play on it well.  They were sweet and seemed ecstatic for their album to drop at midnight – they also didn’t get weirded out when a girl with TWO FTSK tattoos (yes TWO), bombarded them for photos and handed them a teddy bear.

All around good stuff and I wish them nothing but continued success!
