    ok.... ive tried... and ive tried. I dont get it. I dont get what all the fuckin hype is on these guys. Sure their live performance is brilliant, probably one of the most theatrical sets ive seen (from youtube) but the music is just a watered down version of MGMT... yeah i said it.

    Im going to the show tomorrow night, last chance Empire....

    well up until now they've really never toured the U.S., so I guess you can attribute a lot of the hype to the fact that most people around here haven't experienced them live yet.. Though I do see what you mean in terms of some similarity with MGMT.. I don't know, they just seem way more epic and fantastical to me.. plus mgmt kinda sucks live haha

    I have to work on Saturday, so I probably won't be up for going. Anyone need two tickets to the Saturday show? GA floor. Face value ($70 for both). The caveat is you have to pick them up from me at USC.

    I am jealous of all of you attending especially after Chris gave them such rave reviews. I hope I get the opportunity to see them.

    This is going to be awesome, but I wish they had the full LCD screens for the visuals.

    Especially for SHN...

    Except MGMT sucks live and Empire puts on a great live performance.

    I imagine you'll change your view on them after you see them live.
