Cobra Starship / Gym Class Heroes

7 p.m. Sunday, September 24. Creepy Crawl (3524 Washington Boulevard).


Has your marginally successful emo band hit a glass ceiling? Well, maybe you should do what Midtown's Gabe Saporta did: Round up a couple of your famous friends, write the catchiest song of your career, and tie it in with the summer's most hyped flick. One million MySpace plays (and Snakes on a Plane jokes) later, Cobra Starship are embarking on their first tour alongside the Gym Class Heroes, whose frontman Travis McCoy raps on the track. Although honorary Cobras William Beckett (The Academy Is....) and Maja Ivarsson (The Sounds) won't be present on this tour, we're predicting the disco dance-party of the year for Warped Tour generation. Trust us: When Saporta sings, "Oh, I'm ready for it, come on bring it" during the song's breakdown, it's anything but campy.
