I saw Junior Senior at a packed Mercury Lounge several years ago - definitely one of the best shows I have ever seen. Their energy is infectious. Can't wait for this show.

And the album's super fantastic, too. I bought the frigging Japanese import a couple years back, but in hindsight it was totally worth it. Hope it gets a nice reception stateside.

I was at the Mercury show too and agree that it was way fun. The August show should be great.

I saw the Galapagos show that was part of a CMJ showcase.

It's pretty demeaning to Junior Senior's integrity to note them as Le Tigra imitators considering they appeared on the scene long before the ladies did. The correct statement would be to refer Le Tigra as a female Junior Senior act.

Oh wait, forgive me, I think I read this whole bog backwards, lol.

Scratch my previous comment.
