What Year Is It? Hoobastank, Secondhand Serenade Playing The Rock Box


  • Facebook / Hoobastank
Are we reaching now? Are we just doing everything we can to re-live our early-aughts memories since we’ve gone through all the ’90s throwbacks? Who knows, but the folks who are booking these bands are smart, because we keep spending our money to go see them.

LOL, but Hoobastank? It just seems so random, but OK, San Antonio, I see you. Remember when we all found out that Hoobastank frontman Doug Robb and Incubus’ Brandon Boyd were friends? It sort of all made sense for the striking similarities we heard between the bands.

Also, fun fact: before the band put out their self-titled album in 1998, the four-piece released “They Sure Don’t Make Basketball Shorts Like They Used To,” which featured a saxophone section headed by Jeremy Wasser, who executive-produced that record and recorded the Summer Romance saxophone solo on Incubus’ S.C.I.E.N.C.E. album.

The more you know. *rainbow wave*

On tour in celebration of the 15th Anniversary of The Reason and also promoting their latest album, Push Pull, released earlier this year, the band is sure to pull out all the early-aughts stops. With special guests, Secondhand Serenade.

$26, Sat Nov. 24, 7pm, The Rock Box, 1223 E. Houston St., therockboxsa.com.
