Rock Subculture Journal plans to cover the show in Oakland and possible Las Vegas as well.
I saw the band perform as part of Night 1 of Not So Silent Night last year (see concert review for many pics), and they were absolutely incredible. I plan to see them as many times as possible this year – they are amazing.
In my 2012 Year in Review article, I named their debut album My Head Is An Animal the #6 best album of the year, and their song “Dirty Paws” the #9 best song of the year.
The band’s latest video – for “King and Lionheart” – was recently released via their YouTube channel:
