Once upon a time, back in the late 1990s, a sappy quartet of pop-punk boys called the Ataris were beloved across the land, thanks to their knack for writing catchy melodies and heartfelt lyrics. By 2001, the adoration had gone worldwide, and by 2003, they had signed to a major label and hit it big with a Don Henley cover. But instead of living happily ever after, egos got inflamed, fractures appeared, bandmates were fired, and the band limped on for a while, with only vocalist Kris Roe and a pile of hired hands. The magic was gone. Thankfully, to mark the 10-year anniversary of major-label debut and mainstream breakthough So Long, Astoria, the former bandmates are putting aside their differences and looking to relive the old, good times. This is your opportunity to do the same.
