The Ataris – First Unitarian Church – Philadelphia, PA – 12/2/16

Nostalgia was in the air in Philadelphia.  For two nights, MxPx and The Ataris played two sold out shows on December 2 and 3 at the infamous First Unitarian Church.  Each night The Ataris opened the show and MxPx headlined.  For Friday night The Ataris played for about 45 minutes featuring songs spanning their career, except for the album End Is Forever.  For a short set though, The Ataris wanted to make sure they hit all the nostalgic songs for the crowd since this was a pretty nostalgic night.  This would be my third time seeing The Ataris this year, other shows under the Hold That Sound Photography tab, and each time is emotional time machine to my past.  However, this show tops them all.  The lineup, the city, and the venue all hold big memories in my heart.  The Ataris is one of those bands that taught me about life, girls, and growing up.  I couldn’t have ask for any other line up to go down memory lane. This band, and MxPx, were and are the soundtrack to my life.  Hopefully there will be many more shows down the road with both these bands.
