    I plan on seeing them the Tuesday after Coachella in Phoenix, I figure that will help me cope with the post-festival blues. Also, it'll be nice to see them in a different environment.

    Buy the way, if you buy tix through their website they're cheap and without $5 bucks of TM fees. $14.50 for the show at the Rhythm Room.

    I love this band so much I actually pre-ordered the UK special edition, which showed up a few weeks ago. I actually got a piece of her shattered guitar with it! The spec. ed. is fantastic, it comes with a DVD of an accoustic set + interview + all their videos, a second live DVD, then an extra CD of tracks that didn't make the album.

    The album is really solid; I think they probably picked the "right" tracks to repeat from their self-released album from last year, and the newer tracks are all really solid.

    This is the best find on the line up for me. The Big Roar is fantastic and all the live videos I have seen of them are great. Mid-afternoon gobi set plz!

    Drinkey, I was like four people behind you for this rockin' set, but you took off as I was gonna run up and say hi and attempt to high five your epic beard. I got a picture of you getting a picture, though. So there's that. What a great show..... Can't wait to see them again in Phoenix!!

    So glad I got there in time for "Whirring". One of my favorite songs of the weekend for sure. That crazy noise jam they did at the end was nuts.

    Missing this was my biggest regret of the weekend. I was really pumped about this and I'm glad they rocked it. It was just too early in the day!

    was hoping Paul Draper would waltz out for the 'Greyhound in the Slips' opener, but alas not. Sound better live then they do on record. Had 'The Greatest Light' planted firmly in my brain afterward ("da da da, this dream is").
