Philadelphia’s Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start joined forces in the late 90’s, naming themselves after a popular Nintendo cheat code. The band recorded two albums, 2003’s And Nothing is #1 and 2007’s Worst Band Name Ever. Then in 2008, they officially announced their dissolution.
In 2013, the band performed a reunion show at Philly’s Union Transfer. They were celebrating the 10 year anniversary of their debut record. But, any hopes of the band being back together for good seemed in vain, because as they exited the stage, Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Getting Back Together” was the soundtrack. But as the band has since announced ANOTHER reunion show in 2016, this song choice proves to have been in jest.
Fans of the emo-rockers should grab their tickets now to catch Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start when they take over Boot & Saddle on January 9th.
