I got turned onto them from the Lefsetz Letter, Bob Lefsetz’s cranky blog about music and the industry. I got their CD when it came out, but had decided against going to see them tonight at the 9:30 Club, partly because it’s a Monday and partly because they would only play about 5 songs since they were the opener on a triple bill. So the lunchtime show was a treat, much easier to go somewhere on the Metro and back if I don’t have to change trains.

My favorite thing was noticing that the drummer was hitting his plastic cowbell with a paintbrush. I asked him about it afterwards, and he said if he didn’t have it, the show couldn’t go on. Fun guys, hope to catch them again next time they’re through.
