The grammy nominations were released today and the boys and fun. were handsomely for there stellar year by being nominated for a couple grammys. i believe it was something like 6 nominations. For most of the music we all listen to on this site, a grammy nomination is a pipe dream for the aritsts. To see a band of such amazing and hard working musicians get this honor (regardless of your feelings about the grammys) is awesome.
I've been a fan of fun from the start. The Format was huge for me during High School, as was Steel Train. When the format broke up i was gutted. But you stay with the members of the bands, you want to see what their doing. You really start to admire them and want to see them really make it. So too be able to see Nate, Jack and Andrew will raise a sense of pride in our "scene". These are our guys, they werent these mainstrem cookie cutter pop music. They've been around for a decade cutting their teeth trying to make it as muscians and here they are heading to the grammys. I've had the privelage of seeing them perform only once. It was in support of Aim and Ignite, and they opened for Motion City Soundtrack. I was floored. i've never seen a band come on a stage where alot of people were unsure who they were and then by the end of the set, the crowd just being in awe. Truely powerful stuff. So congrats to fun. and hope they get even bigger. If your one of my friends reading this and only have listened to some nights GO LISTEN TO AIM AND IGNITE RIGHT NOW.
