4/3 typhoon @ metro

RIYL: band of horses, the shins, fun., mumford & sons, frightened rabbit, freelance whales, death cab for cutie

THIS SHOW WILL SELL OUT!
these guys made my best of 2013 with their brand of intoxicating sincerity. they recently sold out schubas, moved to lincoln hall, and sold out the rest of the capacity! just another AMAZING band coming out of portland, oregon, these days.
one of the things i really enjoy about this band is the incorporation of several instruments. check out this song below, which has a pretty prominant brass and string section. add in the smoky, low pitch vocals from the singer, and you're sure to swoon: )

    woah! 10 musicians?! this may be why the show was 10x more amazing than some other shows i've seen. it was great, most of the fans sang out (yelled out, really) along with the band. uh-maze-zing! not to be outdone, we had a great group of showgoers, too! great to meet Paul A. and Jill, and to see Paul R., Tom, and Amanda again! can't wait for the next show!

      thanks for asking, cuz after checking, it looks like doors are at 6 pm. crazy early! i checked out the openers, too (lady lamb and the bee keeper / wild ones. both bands seem pretty cool. so, i think i'm going to have to move up the dimo's time, and we'll see you at the venue.

      Just listened to the openers myself and really excited! Wild Ones lead singer has a very Dolores O'Riordan feel (a.k.a. lead singer of The Cranberries)!
