Tonight I saw the Silversun Pickups and they fucking ROCKED. The opening bands... I wasn't so into them. But the Pickups delivered a fantastic show. One thing that stood out, which I tend to appreciate very much, was their songs being close to those on the album. Maybe it was being able to hear the bass loud and clear the whole show. I guess that's pretty important when it's a big part of your sound.
Anyway, 94.7 FM's awesome "I Saw Them When" shows are money. Go to them.
