Backyard Heroes recently had an awesome weekend. Worked on some new songs, met with the amazing organization Stupid Cancer. Really looking forward to working with them. More on that later. For now, we bring you the first of videos released from our show at 10th Street Live this past weekend. 

Here you not only see Backyard Heroes perform It’s Time, a song they recorded the first version of we think exactly a year ago that day, but you also get to witness two very white dudes in skinny jeans cover Party Rock by LMFAO. We’re just that awesome. 



We are so excited to make our return to the stage, and no better way to do it than with our good friends at 10th Street Live!

It’s going to be an awesome show. It’s this coming Saturday, a week from today, April 7th! We go on at 8:30 PM. So get there in time! Look forward to seeing so many of you. We’ve got some new songs to showcase as well as some new surprises with some old songs. 

Spread the word, stay classy,

Hey everyone, yeah Bobby usually handles the blogs, but I’m still awake and decided to send one out.

First off, we sadly have to announce the cancellation of our first Delaware show. All is well, just ran into some scheduling conflicts we weren’t able to dodge. If you were planning on going though, go out and support the other artists. We’ve never met them, but they sounded rad and it’s a free show! Hopefully we’ll schedule another show soon.

Having said that, we still have our show on April 7th at 10th Street Live in Kenilworth, NJ. So very excited for it. We love the people at 10th Street Live very much. We stopped in for an open mic night once and are now gracing everyone with a full set. So come on out and have fun with us.

Let’s see… anything else? I think there’s some news, but I don’t know what I’m supposed to announce yet or not sooo… yeah. What I can say is that we surpassed and broke down the walls of 1,000 votes towards a spot on Warped Tour. Thank you so much to everyone for your support, it means the world to us. We’re hoping to get on that acoustic stage for sure, but if we ended up at least meeting some rad new people and they enjoy our tunes as well… well then it was worth it.

So thank you again, and thank you for reading this rare edition to the blogosphere of Backyard Heroes. I now return you to your usual and very handsome, Bobby, for your future blog readings. I’ll pop in again sometime!




Oh whoops, almost forgot! here’s one more! Backyard Heroes performing What Comes Next? … now you may be wondering just that when the video cuts off haha, but it’s still rad and you still get to hear us made the word fuck sound really pretty! haha


The live premiere of Backyard Heroes' song Risky Business at 10th Street Live’s Open Mic Night!

As promised, here’s some video from our set at 10th Street Live’s Open Mic Night!

Honorable Mention


We had an awesome time showing up at the open mic night at 10th Street Live in Kenilworth, NJ. Our good friend Kevin runs the place and I must say it’s an awesome place. You should all check it out:

We got to see some awesome performers and hang with some really rad people, especially some great friends of ours, the guys from Socratic. It was so good to see them again. It was super gnarly to share our music with them as well.

A little history, I left film school to work with them and I never looked back. It was an amazing experience, developed great friendships, and I think we all did some sweet work together: - A Better Place Is Waiting - Blend In - A Christmas Coal Carol (my first project with them)

They are awesome guys and you should all check out Socratic if you haven’t yet. They just released a rad new album: - new album!

Throughout the night we saw a rad variety of artists. Two of which were members of The Ugly Club (, another awesome band. Lou Panico of Socratic also did a solo performance (he has the voice of a very handsome angel). Not to mention the fact that another performer actually proposed at the end of his set (she said yes!). So as you can tell, it’s quite an exciting time and we definitely plan to go back. Open mic is every Monday, so go out and support local artists, and who knows, you may catch us there again!

We performed four songs including the live premiere of Risky Business. From what I hear we have some video of our set, so as soon as any of it is up, we won’t be greedy, we’ll share!

So please, check out the venue, all the other artists, and hopefully you continue to check out and share our music as well!

Thanks for reading, 

Peace, love, penguins, muppets, and tom hanks,
