If you think Dashboard Confessional's music is just for angsty teens....or when you've just gone through a horrible breakup and you need a soundtrack for drowning your sorrows in ice cream....think again! Chris Carraba writes some of the most beautiful, mature love songs (like "Stolen" *sigh*) that you will ever hear. The band can also rock with the best of them....something you might not know unless you look past the stereotypes and actuall go to one of their shows. Lucky for you (all of us, really), Dashboard Confessional is in Portland tomorrow night and there's still a handful of tickets available for their show at the Wonder Ballroom. Grab them and go! You won't regret it.
The guys stopped by last fall, right before their new CD "Alter The Ending" came out and we had a GREAT chat. Chris is actually a VERY funny guy.....he even pokes a little fun at his sensitive, emo-guy image in the interview below. I hope
Dashboard Confessional talks about their Jake's cheescake scam.....the most random place Chris has ever written a song....which of his songs get the most reaction from people...."Stolen"...."Hands Down"....and their fave new music discoveries!

Travis Meiers teaches third grade in California and he invited his class to write the vows for his ceremony. He and his fiance were (pleasantly) surprised by how awesome they turned out! Here's a little bit...
The new single, "Live It Up" by J. Lo and Pitbull is bound to be a summer anthem for many. Check out the fresh video that was recently released. If this doesn't get you amped to hop on a boat and wear yellow lipstick, I'm not sure what will....
