Today, Saves The Day announced they’re joining forces with longtime friend and celebrated chef, Danny Bowien of Mission Chinese, for a one-of-a-kind pop-up entitled “Do You Know What I Love The Most?” The event will take place at 5025 York Blvd in Los Angeles on November 8th from 7pm to 11pm, offering a fun and innovative way for fans to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band’s seminal full-length, Through Being Cool. The event will feature a Saves The Day themed menu curated by Danny Bowein and Through Being Cool merchandise will also be available. Do You Know What I Love The Most?, along with four sold-out shows in November and a dinner hosted by Bowien in New York, are the latest ways in which Saves The Day are celebrating the momentous occasion of the Through Being Cool reissue, out now through Equal Vision Records. You can stream it digitally here and the vinyl is available here.

Speaking on the pop-up, Danny Bowien says:

“Getting to collaborate with Saves the Day is literally a dream come true! Through Being Cool has shaped me in so many ways, and it is an honor to be able to serve dishes inspired by this amazing group of innovators and friends!”

And frontman Chris Conley added:

“So excited to be celebrating 20 years of Through Being Cool with our dear friend Danny Bowien of Mission Chinese Food. Danny has been a close friend of the band for a thousand years and we wanted to commemorate this special time with a special event with one of our favorite humans on the planet. We’re honored to have Danny fly out to throw a party with us for our friends and fans and we can’t wait to hang out with everybody and toast to another 20 years.”

Danny Bowien is the celebrated chef and co-founder of Mission Chinese Food and the Mission Burger in San Francisco, California. He is a 2013 James Beard Award winner and is also known for his victory in the 2008 “Pesto World Championship”. In recent years, his success has found Bowien expanding Mission Chinese to New York City in 2012 and Brooklyn in 2018.

This November marks twenty years since Saves The Day released their pivotal full-length Through Being Cool, just two short years into their storied career. With Chris Conley still at the helm, the band continues to evolve two decades into their creative journey while still embracing their past – most recently with their aptly titled ninth album, 9. This latest record offers the first ever autobiographical look into the band’s history in a way that is as exhaustive as it is poetic, inviting the listener to experience an intimate look inside the songwriting process.

It’s only fitting that one year after Saves The Day released an album that lyrically serves as a career retrospective, we are preparing to revisit the record that helped shape an era of music and propelled the band from New Jersey underground standouts to international mainstream success. Through Being Cool has maintained its immediacy through the ebbs and flows of influence emo and pop-punk have had on the greater musical world. It is consistently recognized as a pillar of how to successfully blur the lines between hardcore, punk and emo which has become standard practice for a generation of bands influenced by Saves The Day.

Saves The Day recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of Through Being Cool via a re-release with Equal Vision Records. This special edition of one of emo’s defining records has been remastered, repackaged and includes additional never-before-heard demos that eventually would become Through Being Cool. It is a must for any longtime fan and, if you’re just discovering Saves The Day now, a great excuse to dive deep into a record that serves as the foundation of who they are as a band.
