It’s been 20 years and a lot of hard times since Blue October formed, but Justin Furstenfeld and the gang aren’t done yet.

Justin Furstenfeld may not have invented the concept of “living out loud,” but he certainly embodies it with an enviable zeal. The Blue October frontman has never hesitated to identify his long struggle with a bipolar condition as the main grist for his songwriting mill.

Blue October with Girl in a Coma

April 13 • Bogart's

To say that Blue October has taken a rocky road to stardom would be a bit of an understatement. Inarguably Blue’s most notable song, “Hate Me,” was written as an apology for the hardships lead singer Justin Furstenfeld put his mother through while addicted to drugs. Blue October’s two latest albums were both spawned by Furstenfeld’s nasty divorce and subsequent custody battle. There is no simple life, though, which is perhaps what draws so many people to Blue’s music.
