Parents, alumni and faculty watched musical performers, took pictures and danced in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the first graduating class after the merger yesterday at the Middle School.
Parent musicians also performed for the attendees in the Bing Performing Arts Center, including Mark Hoppus (Jack ’20) and Matt Skiba from Blink-182 and violinist and Associate Concertmaster of LA Philharmonic Bing Wang (Anna ’18, Andrew ’21). Songwriter Billy Steinberg (Ezra ’15) also performed his written songs including “Like a Virgin” and “I Touch Myself” with Lauren Ruth Ward and Eddie Rivera.
Leading up to the 15-year anniversary of Box Car Racer's sole release (May 21), DeLonge spoke with Billboard about the project's beginnings and the recent rumblings of a long-awaited reunion.
UG exclusive: "The songs were good. It was cool but it didn't sound like Blink."
Think of your favorite song from Enema of the State. Now think of your favorite song from California. Now imagine them falling in love and starting a family of their own. That's what this song is.
Ha- All this talk about Boxcar Racer, who should we have guest on the album? (If there was one) :)
@travisbarker and I had a good conversation today, this time it was a bit more serious and not just a crazy photo that I get suckered into.
