Have you ever woke up and found yourself in a deep narrow ditch, unsure if it’s the humidity of the dirt enclosing you or the sweat from being in such a compact space that makes it so hard to breathe? As you peer out, the light seems so far away and seems to be getting more and more distant every time you eventually fall asleep and decide when you actually want to open your eyes for the day that you dread so drastically.
Now that I am in my mid-twenties, band tees have become slightly less prevalent in my wardrobe (thanks, grown-up jobs). However, whenever I’m not pretending like I’m gritting my teeth in pain from walking in heels, or tugging at my skirt hem because of my irrational fear of a wardrobe malfunction, I try to find ways to incorporate my old and new band tees into my wardrobe when I’m off-duty.
It’s weird to think about how long the 8123 family has really been around. The community has existed for a decade and then some, and countless people have made their impact on it. With that many artists making music for so long, songs can fall to the side as new content is released. Take a listen to this 8123 Throwback Thursday playlist to hear some classic favorites you’ve been missing.
We couldn’t be happier to announce that 8123 fest is back in January!!!! 3 days, bigger lineup, and we couldn’t help but notice today is the 10 year anniversary of our first album “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” so to celebrate we will be performing the album in full for the first and last time at the festival!
I could not be luckier to find myself in this family. The relationships I've formed with not only The Maine but my friends in the 8123 fam and street team have made my life so much better than I could've ever hoped.
It’s that time of the year again when the summer is coming in hot and Warped Tour is already upon us! Growing up, every year meant patiently waiting and refreshing the Warped website to see if any of my favourite bands were playing.
The Maine have been my favourite band and a gigantic chunk of sunshine in my life for a generous handful of years now, but for me 8123 fest was the point at which this whole thing started to feel more than just a band, but like a family. The atmosphere in that parking lot in downtown Phoenix, filled with several thousand souls from all over the world was nothing short of magical.
We all know The Maine loves their fans, but have you ever stopped to think about just how much they’ve done for us? It’s safe to say they go above and beyond when it comes to showing their fans just how much they care—so much so, it was hard narrowing down all the amazing stuff they do to fit this list!
Summer is finally here, and that likely means more concerts, music festivals, merch, and travel. Sound expensive? I agree; however, with some simple planning and thoughtful saving, you don’t need to miss out on a single set this summer.
Hello there 8123 pals! Allow me to introduce myself, the name is Anna and I am here to tell you about my depression. When I received the email from Chelsea extending the offer to write a blog post, I was stoked. Then, when I read what the topic was; my heart sank and my body felt like it was set on fire. I am not shy about my depression and anxiety.
So you’ve got your tickets for the last ever Warped Tour and you’ve got your list of must see bands that day. Now, the struggle is trying to figure out what to wear. Well don’t fret, this fellow Floridian is here to help you put together the perfect attire for a long summer day!
Let's talk about love. What comes to mind when you read that word? Maybe a song. Maybe a food you like. Maybe a fleeting, glamorized feeling that should actually be called infatuation. Whatever it is, I think we can agree that the word "love" is overused. It's all watered down. It's got no flavor anymore. So how are we even supposed to know what it is today?
