The best music can define a moment in time, forever linking with a memory, filling lobes and the heart with all of the sweet nostalgia of long summer nights far away; staring up at the stars on that road in Florida or your first day of high school. Memories...
is one of those albums. That stuff sends me right back to my tween years when all I dreamed about was moving to Venice Beach, California and becoming a rock star. But my love affair with the band ended with the release of American Idiot
. Now I'm not going to sit here and act like I don't love [some of] their music. I still listen to songs like "Longview," "Brain Stew," and "Basket Case". They have just let me down as they have slowly washed up.
Then they go and do something awesome like this. On Wednesday night at London's famous Brixton Academy the band played Dookie
in its entirety. Check out the show below, courtesy of my new favorite fan at the concert below.
