Streetlight Manifesto is a ska band from New Jersey that was formed in 2003, after lead singer and songwriter Tomas Kalnoky left his previous band Catch 22. They released their debut cd Everything Goes Numb on August 26, 2003. The 12 track cd was the first full length offering from the band after their four track demo was released only a year earlier. The album deals with subjects relating to suicide, literature and existentialism, and social out casts. Much of the cd makes reference to Keasby NIghts, a cd that was released by Thomas before he departed Catch 22.
In November of 2007 Streetlight released their second cd titled Somewhere in the Between. Two of the tracks, We Will Fall Together and Would You Be Impressed, were notable as they were the first two music videos produced by Streetlight. As an added bonus to fans, the band made the cd available at their hometown show. Including a poster with every cd sold, it was made available only at the show four days before it's official release date.
When Streetlight released their latest tour schedule with a plan to stop in Baltimore, I knew that I had to get tickets. Music venues in Baltimore have joined together to create a website that makes it easier for people to purchase tickets to their favorite shows in the area. I ordered my tickets using my 4g internet and TV deal and was able to print them from the comfort of my own house.
