American Football put the “emo” in emotions on Friday, Sept. 13 as they played at the Granada in Lawrence, KS. Nearly 20 years to the date of their 1999 self-titled debut album, new and old fans were excited to see them back in action. The room was filled with anticipation and excitement as many fans waited to see a band that had only gotten back together five years prior.
The melodic and instrumental sounds of songs like “Never Meant” and “Uncomfortably Numb” had the audience singing back the honest and raw lyrics – feeling the true emotions of singer Mike Kinsella as he performs.
The band may be wrapping up their year with three shows in the United Kingdom in November and three shows in Chicago in late December, but it is clear that they are just beginning a new era of American Football.
