The Academy Is… 10 Year Anniversary Tour

When I was 15 years old, I remember listening to The Academy Is… – Slow Down for my whole commute on the way to school while riding the bus. I completely forgot about this band until I saw this post honestly. The music that I listen to these days is much more different than anything I used to listen to when I was 15, but it’s really nice to kind of look back on it. I was so scene back then! It’s kind of endearing to remember all the bands I used to see in shows and how music was kind of my everything way back when. The tour stops in San Francisco near the end of this year, but I’m not sure if I’ll actually be around for it! I’m sure that this would be amazing though – I have no doubts. I’m still amazed it has been 10 years.
