Recently reunited, The Get Up Kids will perform some of their 90’s hits as well as new songs from their fifth studio album.

Jim Florentine: You may recognize his voice as Special Ed or Bobby Fletcher from Comedy Central’s Crank Yankers, but Jim Florentine will be starring as himself tonight at Helium.
