Those two bands that couldn't get enough of each the night before in Stevens Point and were all touchy-feely and lovey-dovey obviously had some kind of falling out because now they're mad at each other and won't talk to each other and are giving each other really mean stares every time they make eye contact. They got all jealous and their relationship might not survive and who even thought they were cute in the first place. Valentine's Day is for losers! Oh yeah, music will also be played.
These two bands are in love and they want to show their affection for each other in a bar in Stevens Point. Although there will be some great music played, there will also be an exchange of chocolate and some flowers between the two bands. And lots of hand holding and maybe even kissing. Gross!
