Todd Fixler was on hand to catch the Atlanta punk rock nostalgia fest others known as Wrecking Ball over the weekend, but Ybor City received a little of the leftovers on Monday night in the form of a 20-year reunion show from The Get Up Kids (TGUK). Bob Nanna's Braid outfit joined the festivities, and The Weaks (a band that probably still hadn't hit puberty when TGUK and Braid first debuted) rounded things out.

Tracy May was on hand, and has a few photos to share. Read our interview with TGUK's Matt Pryor here.
