The Get Up Kids didn't play in St. Louis on its most recent reunion tour. However, members of the band are at least making it to the city in forthcoming weeks: On Friday, December 3, Blackpool Lights (which features guitarist Jim Suptic) is performing at the Firebird. And on Thursday, December 2, GUK vocalist Matt Pryor is playing a solo acoustic house show. Tickets are $20. The location will only be made public to those who buy tickets here. GUK has a new album, These Are Rules, due in January.
