Sometimes I lie awake at night and wonder if there will ever come a day when my children ask me about the music that shaped me as a young man. I will tell them of the era when nu-metal first appeared on the scene, and the Halloween that followed when my parents prevented me from dressing up like Mudvayne one early morning before school. I will also tell them about the rebirth of emo through acoustic guitar and the voice of Chris Carrabba, otherwise known as the rise of Dashboard Confessional, and when I do I imagine they will be filled with jealousy.
This week your favorite band from high school that you didn’t really understand until college announced plans for a tour of smaller venues at the top of 2017. Dashboard Confessional will be hitting the road with support from Vinyl Theater to visit cities along the East Coast and throughout the Midwest over a span of several weeks. Dates for the tour are as follows:
Jan 18 Paradise Rock Club Boston, MA
Jan 21 Irving Plaza New York
Jan 22 The Fillmore Silver Spring Silver Spring, MD
Jan 23 TLA Philadelphia, PA
Jan 26 Bogart’s Cincinnati, OH
Jan 27 Saint Andrew’s Hall Detroit, MI
Jan 28 House of Blues Chicago Chicago, IL
Feb 11 House of Blues Dallas Dallas, TX
Feb 12 House of Blues Houston Houston, TX
Feb 13 House of Blues New Orleans New Orleans, LA
Feb 15 Revolution Live (official) Fort Lauderdale, FL

We do not know at this time whether or not this tour will be connected with promotion for an upcoming release, but we can certainly dream and hope that is the case. Even if it isn’t and this turns out to be a tour for the sake of touring we will still be catching DC live and we hope you do the same.
