It’s been ten years since Kansas City’s The Get Up Kids released their seminal album, “Something To Write Home About”. To celebrate the occasion, Vagrant is now releasing the deluxe edition of the album which comes with a live DVD recorded at the band’s show at the Liberty Hall in Lawrence, Kansas in March 2009.
The show features the band playing the album in its entirety along with a whole bunch of other songs. And as if that isn’t enough yet, this sweet little release also gives you the chance to download a bunch of demos from the “Something To Write Home About” recording sessions.
Yup, it really is all a Get Up Kids fan who’s still crying over the band’s breakup can ask for. Even ten years after its initial release, this album still sounds as fresh and contagious as when I first heard it back in the day when this was one of my all-time favorite albums.
