Dashboard Confessional is back, and clearly you missed Chris Carabba, seeing as he had TWO shows over the weekend at the Danforth! Here’s another new one to sing along to.

James Bay – “Pink Lemonade”

Don’t worry, he’ll be back in September at Woodbine Park! I guess it’s time to learn the words to this one to sing along!
