Conclusion: They're definitely one of the best bands I've heard this year. I saw them at Lolla and it was absolutely amazing! One of the best shows I saw there. Their album Up From Below is amazing, the best thing that could come from a 10 piece set. One of my favourite things about them is their energy and how much fun they have on stage. Being at their show you just get high on life. I'm checkin them out again this coming December at The Mod Club (Sold out) and I already ordered a shirt. AHHH, can't wait. CHECK THEM OUT!


  1. Oh, these guys are great... I (charmingly) like to consider them a band of gypsies who have formed their own traveling society.

    My favorite clip of them is from their Tiny Desk Concert:

  2. I am so happy you shared this link with me!! it is fantastic! :D

  3. I really wanted to see their official Lollapalooza aftershow (it was with Freelance Whales as their opener!)

    Sadly, it was the same night as Cut Copy's postshow peformance... I decided to go to the Cut Copy show (Dragonette opener).

    I don't regret the choice, Cut Copy is awesome... just upset that they were on the same late night.

  4. yahh totally know what you mean. theyll be back.

  5. I am so insanely jealous that you get to see them again. We saw them at ACL last month, and we were going to drive all the way to Kansas City to see them again but it didn't work out. I wish some money would fall from the sky so we could go back to Chicago to see them in December before they go to New freakin' Zealand. Also, for the pizza.
