The past year has been a dream come true for me as some of my favorite groups have reunited and announced nationwide reunion tours. While my wallet is definitely paying the price of these can’t-miss concerts, yours doesn’t have to! We are giving one lucky reader a pair of tickets to The Ataris’ ten-year reunion tour where the band will play their seminal pop punk album So Long, Astoria in full!

If you want to learn more about what promises to be an unforgettable evening with openers Authority Zero and Verses the World, check out my interview with The Ataris’ bassist Mike Davenport, who assured me the show will be chock-full of feel-good nostalgia.
