    If I want to like these guys...should I start from their first album or go straight to last album that everyone is highly praising?

    Awesome show in Philly. It was nice to see them in a proper venue as opposed to outdoors on the beach. Their lighting and backdrop was pretty great.

    Also, by far the most packed I've ever seen The Tower. And ran into Jason Kelce their on the way out.

    Good time for sure. I went to the crackhead bar around the corner afterwards and hung out with connor barwin for a bit. Great dude.

    i looked for you (also texted you). Never saw you. I've seen the tower way more packed than that. I don't think this show was sold out though.

    Didn't see any Eagles.

    They stopped letting people in downstairs before they went on. We snuck in the side. The floor was at capacity so they made everyone go upstairs.... What show was more packed than that? I was in the back of the seats on the floor and there was no room anywhere I saw from me to the stage.

    Tool, Soundgarden, Eddie Vedder. Granted it was kinda hard to tell since the seats were removed and it was GA. So who knows. Plus I was up front so I couldn't really tell.

    Yeah I mean I've been there for seated shows that have sold out but it's more spaced out and everyone has their own little room really. This was a gigantic cluster f. I think it really has to do with there being the GA section. I loved it.

    Dude, we did the same thing and we were in seats towards the back as well. If you were facing stage we were all the way to the left.

    Next show for me is Low Cut Connie at Underground Arts. Their shows are a lot of fun...check them out

    I'm gonna check these guys out at the Pemberton Festival this July!
    This show has great potential.

    Love this album!
    So fucking good, thanks so much for turning me on you guys!

    I picked up Slave Ambient too;)

    Red Eyes probably my favourite song right now ,absolutely amazing!

    I'm seeing them this summer but crapy thing is they are playing the same night as Father John Misty in Vancouver so now I'm kinda try to trade my Father John for a WOD.....

    Both shows are sold out and they are across the street from each other lol

    Have gotten really into these guys the past year. Not sure what took so long. Actually flying to DC next month for their shows and didn't realize they were sold out... If anybody has extras for either night that would be swell!

    Sweet!

    I don't know what it is.... everyone loves this band, and especially their last album. I just can't get into it (so far). I've given it two chances, and it just does nothing for me..... Which doesn't necessarily mean I'll never "get" it. Maybe not, but I can think of a few albums/bands that I just wasn't feeling, and then I just got over some hump and finally heard or felt what I knew others were getting from it.
    With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy. ~ Desiderata

    I love the live version of "Eyes To The Wind." That solo through the end part is really understated on the album. It is incredible live.

    They are similar to PJ, in the sense that their live stuff really, really enhances their album experience. Really wish they had a live album out there...

    Watching golf on NBC and on a cut to commercial, they played the end part to "Ocean."

    Funny, because that was the slight that never-was Sun Kil Moon had against them ("beer commercial rock").
