The Wonder Years Visit Music City during The Hum Goes on Forever Tour



The Hum Goes On Forever tour visited Nashville, Tennessee’s Brooklyn Bowl music venue this week. Featuring iconic band The Wonder Years with supporting acts including Hot Mulligan and Carly Cosgrove this amazing tour left us elder emo’s with some major nostalgia.


Opening up the night was Carly Cosgrove, this name may give you a flash back to your childhood if you ever watched Nickelodeon’s show I Carly, featuring Miranda Cosgrove. This three piece band formed out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania has a unique sound, and has formed all song names in reference to Drake & Josh or I Carly bits which throughout their nine song set had me personally reliving some of my younger years. Opening with song “Munck” they also played songs “Buttersock,” “Gamesphere,” “Don’t Lick the Swingset,” and closed out the night with “Not My Job.”  With their alternative meets indie style the crowd swayed back and forth as they performed their hearts out for us. Vocalist, Lucas Naylor, provided fans with not only his breathtaking voice, but also his insane guitar skills. This was a great opening choice for this tour, and I personally cannot wait to see Carly Cosgrove again soon!

Second band of the night was Michigan based band, Hot Mulligan. Formed in 2014, this emo inspired band really amped up the crowd almost instantly. Vocalist, Nathan Sanville, jumped all around the stage, while not skipping a beat, and really had the crowds undivided attention. During their 14 song set, they opened with “OG Bule Sky,” which seemed to be a crowd favorite. Hot Mulligan also performed “Digging In,” “Losing Days,” “Featuring Mark Hoppus,” “Dirty Office Bongos,” and closed out the night with “Bckyrd.” During previous interviews this band has noted some of their musicial influences include Taking Back Sunday, Motion City Soundtrack, Tiger Jaws, and ironically enough The Wonder Years. Touring with one of their favorite bands has clearly been a heartwarming, surreal experience as Hot Mulligan’s drive and sense of humbleness was evident. As the band exited the stage, the crowd really began to stir for what was next.

As “Doors I Painted Shut” began to play, and the crowd immediately began chanting, the lights down low as the band began entering the stage you could instantly feel the mood of the crowd shift to pure excitement. The Wonder Years, formed in 2005 out of Landsale, Pennsylvania, this American pop punk band has been a notiable band is this music genre. Vocalist, Dan Campbell provides us with melodic, soulful vocals with a emo twist that leaves chills down our spines.  During the 21 song set The Wonder Years played songs “ Came Out Swinging,” “Cigarettes and Saints,” “Low Tide,” “Laura and The Beehive,” and closed out with “You’re the Reason I Don’t Want the World to End.” They also played popular love song “ You in January,” noting while on this tour alone they had NINE PROPOSALS during that song!!! Campbell also told the crowd “ If you are thinking about proposing during our set, this is the song to do it to.” The Hum Goes on Forever Tour began February 17th and will finish up March 26th with a few dates left click HERE for more information on how you can catch them live!
