    I’m MOST excited to see Pierce the Veil!  “Vic” Fuentes has such a great powerful voice and their songs deliver SO MUCH emotion!  And I can NOT wait to rock the F OUT to King For a Day!!!!!!  <– EXCITED!

    Iggy & The Stooges, because they’ll probably draw blood.

  • Megan Bailey

    I’m excited to see The Weakerthans beacuse any concert is a better concert if I’m in the audience! :)

  • Katherine1441

    Im excited to see A day to Remeber! A day to remeber has been one of my favoutrite bands for about 5 years now! I have never been able to see them live so this will be my first time seeing them. I want to be able to bring my bestfriend who also loves A day to remeber so we can see them together. I also cant wait to see real friends and the ghost insisde for the first time since i miss them always when they are in town!

  • Drew Mandel

    I’d love to go to the show as I’m a big fan of the entire sunday line-up! I’ve been a fan of the Flatliners since I was fourteen and they would play the all ages punks against racism and punktoberfest shows at the newmarket youth center! Plus a reunited Rocket From The Crypt and The Replacements! WOWWEEE SOO EXCITING!

  • Andy AA

    The Replacements reunion would be hard to beat, but I’d have to say Iggy and the Stooges is what I look forward to most.

  • AlsoAstrid

    The Weakerthans cause their music makes the world a better, more beautiful and more interesting place.

    The Replacements!! I have always loved them, and I do not want to miss the reunion!

  • traplines

    The Replacements. I wanna get born in Minneapolis 1968, but this is the next best thing.

  • PapaSmurfMurphy

    Dinosaur Jr! I love Dino jr. I’m pretty sure that J Mascis is the coolest person of all time and Emmett Murphy shares the same name as my grandfather which is pretty neat.
