Morning Benders

"Berkeley, California-bred four-piece band The Morning Benders are the Muhammad Ali of pop-rock: their summery melodies float on leader Christopher Chu's airy vocals like butterflies, but their lyrics sting like bees that've crawled under your sleeve when you weren't looking."
[Eye Weekly]

The Morning Benders finish up their tour tonight in a big way, with a headlining show at Webster Hall and a stacked bill of indie pop rising stars with both Twin Sister and Cults opening the show. Tickets are on sale, and if you need one more reason to get there, how about a pair of free tickets? I am giving a pair away. Details on how to win below.

Earlier on that tour they happened upon Chicago's Lincoln Hall on October 31st, and as you can see in the above picture taken at that show, they were ready for the occasion. More pictures like it, below.

Also below: a stream of the Golden Filter's brand new remix of hit Morning Benders track "Excuses" which you can also download via a widget at the band's website.
