I know . . . I’m technically old enough to be a parent of everyone in Hang Tight. But gosh darn it – I still want to go surfing or watch someone surfing. And skateboarding. And the mosh pit. They might need a parent around or at least someone with band-aids.
So I’ve been listening to their album, Grind, and daydreaming about going to the beach and hanging out with young punks. I grew up in the country so I missed out on the beach and punk rock for quite a few years. This album reminds me that maybe in my heart I belong in California or somewhere with a decent punk rock/beach scene.
My favorite song on this album, “Pretty in True Blue.” I’ll just pretend it’s about me for a few minutes. That’s the magic of music, right?! It can transport you somewhere for a short time.
