The Friday Night Boys were a pop punk band from Fairfax, Virginia, that formed in 2006. The band consisted of Andrew Goldstein, Mike Toohey, Robby Reider, and Chris Barrett.
The Friday Night Boys independently released The Sketch Process EP in the Spring of 2008 from producer Sean Small, selling over 45,000 total digital tracks. On July 11, 2008, the band performed on MTV's Total Request Live on a segment called "On Your Radar", which featured unsigned bands with escalating online popularity. They also appeared on MTV.com's "Pop-Punk Rookies of 2009". The band signed to Fueled By Ramen in August 2008, and released the EP titled That's What She Said on October 14, 2008. Their first full-length album Off the Deep End was released on June 9, 2009 from producer Emanuel Kiriakou.

On October 8, 2010, Andrew Goldstein announced the breakup of the band via Fueled by Ramen's Tumblr site. Goldstein also announced that Toohey and Reider will be working together in a new band project called Time Travel.

On February 1, 2011, The Friday Night Boys released their final material, titled 'Everything You Ever Wanted: The B-Sides'.
