Not bad. Just a couple to point out. I think the word "albums" is meant to not be there. You also want a comma after "Furs".

Could they think of a less cliché name than Weeknight. Fuck this unoriginal shit

Which one is the chick?

I'm in a struggle at the moment. Do you know the T. Bone Burnett produced album from Counting Crows 'August and Everything After'? It's got great musicianship and songwriting on it. Really! It reminds of me of how The Band sounded on their first two albums. And really, T. Bone's involvement only raises the bar, IMHO. However, and here's what I am trying to get past ... they seem like collage douche music sorta like Dave Matthew Band. No? Maybe I'm lumping them together unfairly?

Thoughts?

I happen to think its awesome. Just because you don't like it doesn't mean you have to leave offensive comments.

I wasn't leaving offensive comments. I was genuinely asking thoughts? I think I need to revisit the album because I've recently heard a few cuts that I have not heard in years, and it's made me rethink the album.

Cool band I saw them at the School of Seven Bells benefit show at music hall was a great opener

Great cut. Looking forward to the album and its subsequent silencing of these needle-dicked trolls.

The hottie in this band served me some cold Bud Lights & Jamey Shots at Union Pool during a raving DJ party. I felt a girl up in the bathroom line after that and got kicked out :( All good though, went to Barcade after with some chill bros and did some bumps

5:39, I understand your dilemma. I have always been a fan of August and Everything After. Recovering the Satellites isn't bad either. I'm not sure when they got lumped in with the frat demo, sometime around the millennium?

this band is radio handsome.

The day those albums were released they were rightfully lumped in with the frat demo because that's what they are. You're an apologist idiot.

Ya'll are idiots for bringing up and discussing subjects that don't pertain to the article.

...and cowards for anonymously posting negative comments. Why don't you take credit for your brilliantly written posts?

4:47 Why don't you? You're comment is negative and has nothing to do with the article either. So step off.

^ "So step off"
This guy shook hands with a black person once and now he's all like that huh?

After we met Holly, the keyboarder of Weeknight, at a bar, they were one of the first fixtures of our SXSW schedule, even though we haven't heard a single song of them. Turns out, fortunately, that they are actually doing awesome, 80s-inspired synth pop, which is exactly down my alley.
