What to do after Summerfest

The Rave is a perfect venue for shows like the following event. Boys Like Girls, Good Charlotte, Metro Station, and The Maine will all perform on Wednesday, July 09, 2008 at 7pm. It's called The Soundtrack Of Your Summer. Words to describe this show: Pop Punk, Hooks, Melodic, garage band. If you are 12, or if you know someone who is 12, you may find this to be the best show of the year. It starts at the kid-friendly time of 7pm.

Good Charlotte was getting some major airplay back in 2002 with the song Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. This hit song came to life in year four of the band's history. They were everywhere. MTV honored them with video of the year for said hit song. Aaron Escolopio, their original drummer decided to join Wakefild just before this CD was recorded. Various drummers picked up the slack, and contributed to the CD that went triple platinum.

Good Charlotte suffered from the third album blues with the release Chronicles of Life and Death. My guess is the album tanked when they decided to add strings, keyboards, and adult themes to their songs. It still boggles the mind as to how many bands depart from a solid formula on album number three, and go on to offend their fan base.

No worries, Good Morning Revival came on strong in 2007, and with some great Itunes promo, the cd started off in the top ten in many countries.

This event could have sold enough Marcus Amphitheater tickets if it were 2003, but the years have passed, and it's now a rave sized show.
