The Ataris with The Shady Francos
- The Ataris’ sound: pop punk meets an appreciation of classic rock
- When hardcore fans met them: in 1995, when frontman Kristopher Roe and then-guitarist Jasin Thomason were still recording on a four-track in Roe’s bedroom
- How everyone else met them: through 2003’s So Long, Astoria, which launched the band into mainstream success with singles such as “In This Diary” and “The Saddest Song”
- Biggest hit off that album: “The Boys of Summer,” a Don Henley cover that reached No. 20 on the Billboard Hot 100
- How The Ataris updated the lyrics to suit their age: they changed the words “saw a Deadhead sticker on a Cadillac” to “saw a Black Flag sticker on a Cadillac”
- Since then: they’ve had a few lineup changes, released their fifth studio album Welcome the Night, and embarked on a world tour
- Shady Francos: a self-described “manic rock ‘n’ roll band” based in San Diego
- Signatures: surf riffs, fuzzy garage-rock textures, and a DIY ethos, all propelled by frenetic energy onstage
