Last Night: Taking Back Sunday At House Of Blues

Taking Back Sunday House of Blues July 4, 2011

As we walked into House of Blues Monday night, Aftermath thought to ourselves, "Is this the best way to celebrate our country's independence?"

It was a fair question, we thought, because it had crossed our minds that we should have been sitting in a park somewhere, eating hot dogs with our friends and family, perhaps running around throwing a frisbee or a football, waiting for fireworks.

But we feel most at home at the numerous music venues around town, and commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence where we felt most at ease seemed to make sense. So we just went with it.

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.

After half a decade of attending concerts and interviewing musicians, he has credited this fortuitous mistake to divine intervention.
