When I saw them here in NC awhile ago, they played with Rogue Wave (whom I had never heard and were awesome). They played all the songs listed in the first post plus about 10 more, long long super show. My personal favorites were the solo version of "Your Legs Grow" as the first sogn of the encore a...

Lately it's been this song by one Devin Davis off of a Kill Rock Stars compilation: I saw the glint of gold on a wayward road It slowly twisted back underneath the heavy load I'll throw all your diamonds away They won't mean a thing When the angels lift our eyelids in the morning This night might be...

Are you still training for the big race
by hoping the runners will die?


definently. "hindsight" is quickly becoming one of my favorite long winters songs, if just for that awesome bridge.

I saw them with The Decemberists years ago. Amazing, amazing show. And this was before I was familiar with any of their songs other than "Blue Diamonds". The memory that stands out is the "no...you are"s from New Girl. I'm excited to see them now after being obsessed with all their music for awhile.

F#m Bm A D I know I wasn't meant to play on a team F#m E D You weighed your suitcase down but it still wouldn't sink And my bastardization of the verse riff is E...

Two NC dates. I think a road trip might be in order!


You (and anyone else) should find me and say hello somehow if you come to the Local 506 show! I can never get friends to come to shows with me.
