The Get Up Kids reunion show

with Chris Tolle

Record Bar

With just days' notice and no promo whatsoever, the Lawrence/KC-area's celebrated emo-rock combo The Get Up Kids get back together for their first show in over three years, after having split in July '05.From Matt Pryor via the Star: Next year is the 10th anniversary of our second record, 'Something to Write Home About,' which was our most popular record. We talked to Vagrant about doing a 10-year anniversary edition with a DVD and a photo book and all that stuff. Then we thought, 'Hey, we should play some shows.' This summer we got everybody on-board. Then we basically told a bunch of people about it and then denied it, just to be contrary."We weren't going to do it until next year, but we decided it'd be funny if we just showed up and played a show. We thought about doing it Thanksgiving, like, 'Hey, we all happen to be home for Thanksgiving ...,' but that didn't work out.
