It's 3 a.m., you must be lonely. You wanna push stuff around. You know what you need? No, not that ninth shot of whiskey from the bottom of a steel-stained flask. Why don't you shelve the booze and help yourself to some matchbox twenty tickets instead? Yes, that's right: the same matchbox twenty (don't let the very grown-up spelling of the number 20 fool you) that put out hit after hit while you were still in braces. Think of all the eighth grade dance memories set to flood back! (Well, maybe not the part when you peed your pants after your crush kinda smiled at you.) Even better, joining Rob and the rest of the matchbox lads onstage is none other than Phillip Phillips, "American Idol" veteran and everybody's new favorite "Home" boy. (See what we did there? Hilarious.) Get ready to rock out with your, well, reasonably priced low-sugar cocktails out. In fact, maybe you better smuggle in that flask, just in case. Nothing enhances '90s adult contemporary quite like reminiscing about spiking the punch bowl.
