This band is really not very good.

Great band, clever lyrics. Nice to see an NYC band that isn't a bunch of douchebag ex-frat boys dressed up as hippie inspired man-child spiritualists.

This band is great, can't wait to hear the full length. the whole e.p. is pretty great if you're into early mbv or 14 iced bears, etc., although they have maybe the worst band name ever.

Many people here just write nasty comments and I'm not sure why. This band does what they do very well. They represent NYC and the C86 inspired movement very well.

Oh anonymous hipsters, you're so above it all.

Great show tonight, but the girl in Pains did nothing to justify her presence in the band. And her grinning made them slightly worse.

It's amazing how every decent band, lately, comes out of NYC.

When these guys playing in Minneapolis? There's no better venue than First Ave; They would also be great at the Entry.

I haven't gotten over the name, it's the worst ever, and yes that matters. It's a shining beacon of who they think they are.

Yeah..she is terrible..A nice compliment on record but live she is pretty much pointless..

Students do think that the good essay creating supposes the really time wasting issue. But, people rely on the paper writing service help anytime when that is needed.
