“New songs, new approaches, same person: Ryan J. Downey talks to Dashboard Confessional mainstay Chris Carrabba about the view from where he’s standing-and, no, he can’t see John Mayer’s house from there.”

FASCINATING breadth. what do you think? are there any iconic frontmen or songwriters of emo I missed? (other than pet wantz, known gemini, patrick stump is a taurus)
it’s interesting that there are so few (any? where!) sags and capricorns, when usually both are overrepresented among musicians.
In theory both music from Chris Carrabba and Hanson performing together (separately?) sounds like a great idea. But having been to a Dashboard Confessional concert in DC, it was honestly THE WORST concert experience I’ve ever been to. And y'all know how I have Hanson concert anxiety (well, the waiting, once I’m sitting I’m generally fine). When I saw Dashboard my friend and I had nosebleeds. And the resonance sucked. Some girls behind me were screaming like they were being murdered. I turned around and put my finger to my lips like, quiet down he can’t hear just how much you love him. Her friend told her to kick me in the head after I turned back around (she didn’t). Soooo, the idea of being stuck on an island fan with Chris Carrabba fans AND Hanson fans doesn’t sound too fun. Musically, yes. But, meh, I’ll pass..
