Montreal’s beloved pop-punk quintet Simple Plan pulls no punches, enrapturing fans with a fistful of hits and an exuberant stage presence that leaves audiences gratefully breathless. Since its 2002 debut, No Pads, No Helmets…Just Balls, Simple Plan has crafted an impressive discography of unflinching music that stomps like a rugby team commandeering a gospel-tent revival. With hits such as “Addicted” and “Your Love is a Lie,” as well as new numbers from its latest album, Get Your Heart On!, the band's aerobic and cathartic pop has sold millions of records and garnered a coveted Teen Choice Award. As sentimental as a canary’s funeral with anthems that echo like a Spartan pep rally, Simple Plan’s sheet-music blueprints and bulldozing guitars keep fans sheltered from the winds of cacophony. Before the main act take the stage, Dallas's Forever The Sickest Kids kick off the special Halloween-night show, regaling audiences with mischievous pop-punk sung through plastic vampire fangs.
The Glass House
Resembling a space ship abandoned by aliens who had recently time-traveled to hang out with Le Corbusier, The Glass House is a portal to rock and dance sounds for music-lovers of all ages. It’s also a cornerstone of downtown Pomona’s close-knit arts district, surrounded by record stores, cafes, and vintage shops. Holiday-themed shows and fundraising concerts join young, on-the-rise bands on the calendar, along with established favorites such as New Found Glory and The Faint.
