The last time I saw them play an album start to finish was The Upsides in Anaheim, and the show itself was essentially booked as a way to make up for a cancelled Whittier show that turned into a riot when some kid was beaten up during one of the local opener's sets. Now they're playing Suburbia entirely because their shows sold out too fast and kids couldn't get tickets in time.
Think about that. They booked plane tickets and accommodations for their band, gear, and crew on personal credit cards (I remember Soupy saying something to that effect) to play a one-off show across the country for an aborted show they were in town for months earlier, and are now playing an extra show on the day of another one (giving up rest, sleep, and travel time) to make up for kids who didn't get to see them.
Pretty goddamn commendable.
