Taking Back Sunday @ House of Vans, Chicago, IL

As rockers grew nostalgic for the Warped Tour days, House of Vans recruited one of the best bands to play on their House Parties Series and fill that summer rock void. Taking Back Sunday is a long time friend to the Vans family and it made sense that the theme would commemorate those fond Warped Tour days. They were joined with Rozwell Kid and Pronoun as Brian Ewing was the featured artist of the night.

House of Vans filled to the brim with emo, pop punk, alt rock lovers of every sort, thrashed about as the iconic bass line dropped for their one of their many hits, “Liar (It Takes One To Know One)”. Outside the doors of the venue were a few folks lingering and singing along to some of their favorite songs from the band. What a way to honor a legendary era of rock music from a company that helped us all celebrate the summer right for 25 years.
