My pals in Kansas City used to tell me that it wasn't a real show until there was a Get Up Kid spotting. (Heh.) Now that the band is broken up and its individual members are doing their own things -- Matt Pryor has a solo disc out or coming out soon, for starters -- videos like this are more bittersweet. So good, this '90s Midwest emo. Get Up Kids from November 1997 doing "Woodson."
