however that was once then. Flash ahead virtually a decade and the emo motion seems to have all however dried up. Pete Wentz posters were shelved in favour of Harry types. The angsty rock that when has blared out of bedroom speakers has been replaced with excessive-boulevard pop. 

So I used to be intrigued after I noticed that old-faculty emo darlings Taking back Sunday have been again in town. Would they nonetheless have “it”?

taking a look across the Roundhouse in Camden, both the band and their lovers appear older. people are just a little taller, slightly wider and full with a few more crows feet.
