Kill Hannah may not be media sensations—or even anything remotely close to it—but they have, as Rachael from Ohio pointed out, one of the most dedicated and unique fan bases you are going to find anywhere. There are few other acts, regardless of their level of media or label representation—Kill Hannah is also presently without label representation of any kind—who can consistently draw in the support the band does for their New Heart for Christmas event, without a supporting tour, without a new album, and without having either of those things for three, going on four years.
The New Heart for Christmas 9 weekend event is and will continue to be a chance for the most devoted, most dedicated fans to see their favorite band play their biggest show of the year and meet so many others like them. It is an opportunity for people who have emailed, snail mailed, Skyped and phoned themselves into "BFF" status to finally meet one another face to face and in the flesh. It is an opportunity to see a band who is so in tune with their fans that their singer can wave his hand across the crowd and say, "This front row here, this is my Twitter feed," and perform songs that hold such deep meaning both to them and to their hometown fans. These opportunities do not come along every day and not only am I intensely grateful that I have been able to experience it twice but I encourage anyone who comes across a similar opportunity—be it Kill Hannah's New Heart for Christmas or something your own favorite bands put together—that you do it with no regrets.
