Trying to work out in my head how many times I had seen them live, and I think it was at least 10, often opening up for Wilco either in the Twin Cities or Duluth. Last time was Wilco's 2019 mini-residency at The Palace, where they played on the first 2 nights of a 3 show run.
No Motion City Soundtrack posted yet? One of the better 2000's pop punk/emo bands there is if you're into that sort of thing. Justin Pierre has always been a cool chill guy in my interactions with him. Periodically he's pretty active on twitter, and he's happy to chat with fans about his experience as a musician.
