My only problem was with the sound desk, as half of the set seemed to consist of roaring rhythmic fuzz, but aside from that the band performed perfectly. Also it was free. And they tour perpetually so go see them! They’re returning to the UK next month too.

These things happen, but this time it’s a little too close to home. If you are a close friend of mine, you know how near and dear these guys are to my heart and how mildly psychotic my visceral reactions are when something happens to them. HOODRATS WE WILL FIND YOU.
