And here, at last, is the long awaited conclusion of our ongoing saga of three high school friends from the small town of Coralville, Iowa, trying to hit the big times in the turbulent world of pop punk...
For Part One, go here. And for Part Two, go there.
When we last left, our intrepid trio, they had become North American superstars, bringing their feisty brand of pop punk to The Ottawa Explosion in Canada!
They also met their HUGE fan and supporter, Dan OlderMusicGeek, who would play a bit of a role in their lives.
And they reached a pinnacle hard to beat, by opening up for their idols, Green Day!
Where do they go from there?
But they also did a great and wonderful show, OlderMusicGeek's 50th Birthday Bash! Unfortunately, there is also no video or audio of this event!
But we do have some music from various side projects, including on from Luke! Yes, for once, in this whole retrospective, we actually have a side project of Luke's!
We do, also, have some live Lipstick Homicide music from a few festivals including an acoustic set they did!
So sit back, listen, and enjoy, as in Part 3, we cover, for the most parts, their activities from 2013, 2014, and 2015.
