Well, once again, I got to miss a Bad Religion show. I have been a fan for 7 years now, and I have missed at least 8 possible shows. The first few were because of that gigantic thumb I lived under; I called it “Parental Guidance”. During that middle period, I missed the shows because the album they were touring for frankly sucked. Fast forward to 2000, the May release of The New America and I started to get excited with the band again. Preliminary reports of this tour got me even more excited since they were playing mostly older songs (read: good songs)! They come to SE Michigan on tour for this new album, and I am too busy to go to the show. At least The Daily published a nice article about them yesterday.
