Ceremony’s got a new LP coming out on Matador. They just announced their summer tour dates. It’s almost July and your local venue just hit a solid 110 °F inside. If you’ve ever been to a Ceremony show, you know, regardless of season, it’s totally like an angry sauna (we’re talking fervent and fermented, girl). We know you don’t want the pertinent information about the tour (news is boring). You’ve only got one question on your mind: “TMT, what the hell do I wear?” We’ve got a quiz for that:
01. You’re waiting to get inside the venue. Three of your best friends are wearing jean jackets even though it’s a solid 90 ° outside and they are so throwing shade at you for insisting on wearing boat shoes in the pit. Which one of these funny words would you use to best describe your friends?
Correct answer: Anything but D. Can anyone explain the logistics behind wearing a jean jacket in the summer? What kind of life is that?
02. Which Ceremony song title best describes your own personal style?
A. “Feel Like a Man”
B. “You’re All the Same”
C. “It’s Going to be a Cold Winter”
E. “Plutocratic Swine Rake”
Correct answer: Who cares? You do you! Just kidding, the correct answer is D.
03. If you could choose ONE opening band on this tour to party with, who would it be? And you can’t say “Ceremony” — I’m partying with those guys!!!
Correct answer: F. All those bands are awesome.
Quiz result: You got Shorts! You’re wild, free, but also prudent, and you love to liberate your epidermis. Everyone’s going to think you’re so fly at the Ceremony show. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with boat shoes.
