Incubus HQ Live
Los Angeles, CA

Incubus’ sixth major label album, If Not Now, When?, is already shaping up to be the band’s most polarizing effort, and it hasn’t even officially been released yet. It is that album the band chose to play front-to-back to close out its weeklong Incubus HQ Live, a special web streaming event that saw the band interacting with both fans and press in a variety of creative ways.

The new album is weak, imo, but they are still great live.

I never truly appreciated Boyd's vocals until I heard the title track off this record. Just amazing.

The second half of "In the Company of Wolves" is orgasmically tasty.
