      […] Most of the others I have seen before The Saturday Knights – Their show is a sure thing. Go to the KEXP blog and download their single. Unless you think it’s bad to listen to other kinds of music. Land of Talk – female singer/lead guitar player rocks out with a Les Paul SG. It’s crazy, I hate AC/DC, but I love the SG. I must warn you though, they are Canadian. Tokyo Police Club – these guys look like all the hipsters I hate, but they bring the rock like there’s no tomorrow. They are also Canadian. +/- – these guys have the best name because it accurately describes how I feel about them. They can go from awesome to terrible, sometimes even in the same song. Eternally frustrating, but I can’t say they didn’t warn me. I love half of their latest album; guess what I think of the other half. 120 days – I’m still trying to figure out if these guys are too douchebagish to really enjoy live. i’ll give them one more shot, but if they cry about their ridiculously complicated setup not working, they will be dead to me – even though their sound reminds me of the lamda lamda lamda’s carnival performance in Revenge of the Nerds. Junior Senior – “Move Your Feet” still makes me smile. […]
