Holy Shit

If you're a warm-blooded human or human-like being born between the years 1980 and 1990 with two ear-holes and a heart, chances are you learned how to feel thanks to Saves the Day. Last night, following a sold-out show at Brooklyn's Music Hall of Williamsburg, the pop-punk heroes hoofed it to Greenpoint metal mainstay St. Vitus for an intimate secret late-night set. Chris, Arun, Rodrigo, and Dennis took the stage at about 2AM and, in a series of events that can only be described as "indisputable proof of a Divine Creator,"  played their 1999 heart-smasher Through Being Cool front to back before taking requests and indulging in exactly one Weezer cover. The sweat-drenched, lung-crushing affair wrapped up around 4AM, and what happened next stays between us and the fresh tear stains on our pillow.

HUGE thanks to Noisey contributing editor and everyone's favorite (or least favorite, depending) Jaded Punk Dan Ozzi for an unforgettable evening.
