I went to high school with him. Fact. People change once they hit college.

Very boring.

Posted by Sunskull | February 2, 2012 9:12 AM

you people are horrible. the big sleep is a great band.

serious question: how come their drummer, who as far as I know has been with the band since 2006, is never in any of their publicity shots?

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2012 9:34 AM

this band kills. saw them open for dismemberment plan and they stole the night.

drummer was married to singer, probably divorce or someone cheating

i'm glad to see Michael Jackson wasn't really dead and did finally make that tour.

kinda unimaginative for a band that's been on the music grind for at least a decade.

Posted by Anonymous | February 2, 2012 5:56 PM

they sound like an 80's new wave band

No, I'm not horrible for having taste. This band is really fucking boring. Perhaps they'd be passable if you never heard any music before in your life.

flashing lights and moving vehicles are a good distraction from bad music. smart kids!

It was a good show. No encore, but the venue turned on the music immediately after their last song.

Posted by Aaron | February 3, 2012 1:21 PM

show was solid. done.

they started kind of late, that's probably why. but they sounded awesome and looked into it

The show looked like " Thriller"

Like if Stevie Nicks grew some balls and guitar-whipped Jimmy Page in a thunderstorm

Done? No need to say it a second time, then.
