    A Saturday night spent at Fourth Street Live! is a Saturday night well spent in Louisville. It’s where you go to celebrate birthdays and host bachelorette parties. It’s where you take your visiting cousins when they want to see the most exciting side of Louisville. And just last weekend, it was the place to go for alcohol served up in fishbowls and reminiscences about the previous decade with Taking Back Sunday.

    The band that struck pop punk gold in 2002 with its debut album “Tell All Your Friends” made a stop in Louisville Saturday night on its tour promoting the new album “Happiness Is.” And because the band originally hit it big with America’s youth of the early 2000s, its performance at the 21 and older show definitely did not disappoint.

    Before Taking Back Sunday took the stage with a storm of punk riffs and emotional lyrics, the crowd got fired up with St. Louis rockers Greek Fire. Compiled of members from the pop punk band Story of the Year, Greek Fire impressed audience members with its poppy sound and melodic punky tunes.

    Then it was time for Taking Back Sunday. The band played a few favorites from "Happiness Is" while also incorporating several classic oldies. The biggest crowd-pleasers included “Timberwolves at New Jersey,” “Cute Without the E" and "You're So Last Summer," each from the band’s first album, as well as the song that inspired a moshpit in the massive crowd, “A Decade Under the Influence,” which is from the band’s sophomore album “Where You Want to Be.” Then finally, the band ended the show with one of its most popular hits, “MakeDamnSure,” from its album “Louder Now,” released in 2006.

    And while the music was blaring through the entire venue, Tengo Sed Cantina in the upper-level of Fourth Street Live! was serving up fishbowls of your favorite cocktails. These delicious, certainly-made-for-sharing drinks ran $18 each. And when you and your friends only need one, that’s a pretty good deal.

    If you missed Taking Back Sunday on Saturday night, you can see where the tour is headed next on the band’s website
