So saw them at the Observatory in OC, a venue they added before Wiltern. It was crowded with kids as Young Blood is getting alot of local play on KROQ. Naked and Famous were energetic, fun and clearly excited to be playing to crowded venue but didn't have alot of material yet and played their whole album plus a few others, including a pretty good Neworder-ish type song not on the album, Bells. First 2 songs were strong and same as on the album, with Girls as closer and Young Blood as encore. Some of the other songs fell a bit flat or seemed disjointed. I'd love to see them next year but could understand if GV waits until they have a 2nd album and a bit more experience.
