Out and About: Alkaline Trio and New Found Glory at T5

Barry, the bartender upstairs at McGee's on 55th Street, knew exactly which concert I was going to. "You're going to the Alkaline Trio and New Found Glory show at Terminal 5, right?" he said with jealousy. Barry is a pop punk fan, and when he plays his favorite music over the sports bar sound system, he frequently overhears people saying, "Oh, I remember when I listened to this in high school."

Such is the legacy of bands like Alkaline Trio and New Found Glory. Their brand of music is remembered fondly by some, and despised by others, often written off as a thing of the past. But among the hundreds of fans who went to Sunday's show at Terminal 5 in New York City, pop punk is a scene very much alive and well, although increasingly measured against its glory days, a decade and a half ago.

Out and About: The Neighbourhood Live on Letterman

The boys in The Neighbourhood walked onstage last night at the Ed Sullivan Theater, seeming young but confident. The drummer wore a black t-shirt that said Compton, with cut-off sleeves, and the rest of the band were also shrouded in dark fabrics, except the singer Jesse Rutherford, who appeared as a study in contrast: hair half dark, half bleached; a leather jacket half painted white; skinny black jeans with one white leg. They looked very cool, both macho and flamboyant.
