I am sure out in LA these guys are everywhere but I just found out about them yesterday and can't stop listening to their album. I can not wait to see these guys live!!! Does anyone know where I can find some live bootlegs or anything?

I saw them in LA this year and loved the set.

They played in Iowa last fall, I saw them in a bar with maybe 50 people. They were amazing, but I'm glad I had a chance to see them then so I can watch another band.

i actually just found out about these guys too, and i haven't been this fully into an album in a long time. they sound a lot like Stars.

These guys are awesome. They play all the time here in LA on Indie 103.1. Can't wait to see them live.

They remind me of Siamese Dream-era Pumpkins.

i've been listening to these guys for about a year now. their EP is awesome! the new album is great too but took time to grow on me. i've seen them about 5 or 6 times. they opened for brendan benson here in sf about a year ago... wolfmother recently.

i saw them play at a rinky dinky venue here in sf called Cafe Du Nord with Amusement Parks On Fire (love their first album) and with Nine Black Alps (which we left midway through)... i chatted with a few of the band members before hand. the singer is a quirky, funny ass dude. the bassist usually hangs out at the merchandise table and is very nice.

i really enjoyed their set at a small venue in houston a few months ago when they opened up for wolfmother. i had never heard of them before, but glad we were able to see them in that setting. my gf and i liked them so much, we picked up a copy of there cd on the way out.
