I get a lot of press releases in my inbox everyday, but it’s been a long time since I got one that got me this excited:


If you saw my reaction when I saw that The Rankin Family were going on tour, you would have been either a) embarrassed or b) frightened. I freaking love The Rankin Family. I’m obviously going to see them, making it the fifth or six time. And it’s not just The Rankin Family. There’s also all their side projects, The Rankin Sisters (love). Jimmy Rankin (love). Molly Rankin (love.) It’s all love, all the time for The Rankin Family.

If watching The Rankin Family isn’t exciting enough, you know who is opening for them? Jimmy Rankin! Yes, Jimmy is opening for himself. I would hate it if any other band did this, but for The Rankins, anything goes.

Also, if you wanted to make this blog post a drinking game, just take a shot every time you read the word “Rankin”. That’s what I did and I’m feeling the fine, I’m good, man, I love you guys, no seriously, loooooveee yuoi.

  1. You actually make it seem really easy along with your presentation however I in finding this topic to be really something that I feel I’d never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely broad for me. I’m taking a look ahead on your subsequent post, I?¦ll try to get the cling of it!
