Andrew McMahon just turned 40 on September 3rd, and he wants all of his fans to help him celebrate tomorrow night! Dubbed Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness will happen Friday at the House of Blues, Anaheim as a hometown 40th birthday show.
If you listened to pop-punk in the early 2000s, then you are no stranger to Andrew McMahon or any of his past projects; Jack’s Mannequin or Something Corporate. I grew up during the Drive-Thru Records era and was a fan of most, if not all of the label’s bands. I have followed McMahon and pretty much everything he’s done from Something Corporate and their song “If you C Jordon,” to Jack’s Mannequin “Rescued,” and Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness’ immensely successful single, “Cecilia and the Satellite.” Written for his daughter,
The song became the lead single from McMahon’s self-titled debut album. Its music video garnered over 8.5 million views on YouTube and the single briefly charted on Billboard’s Top 100 in 2015.
McMahon has just come off a month-long tour with Dashboard Confessional and is making this a special stop for the fans. They have just released a brand-new single called “Stars” Which is actually an extremely fun, poppy rock tune that features slide guitars, violins, and a catchy melody that is a perfect fit for any top 40 radio station or playlist.

Expect to hear a little bit of everything from Andrew’s career at this show, from Something Corporate songs like “Punk Rock Princess” or “I Woke up in a Car” to Jack’s Mannequin songs such as “Bruised”, “The Mixed Tape” or “Holiday for Real” and of course look forward to the latest from Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness.
After breaking up and taking a long hiatus, The Juliana Theory is back as a duo consisting of singer Brett Detar, and guitarist Joshua Fiedler, and they are opening the show. Their most recent album was 2021’s “A Dream Away” which reimagines several of their earlier hits. This should be a night to remember as the press release promises “very special surprise guests”
