My favorite thing about this band:

Mangum recorded his part of the song "Oh Comely" in one scratch take, at the end of which you can hear a stunned band member yell "Holy shit!" in the background.

Yep. The rest looks correct to me.

I just wish Tino would leave Of Mice and be a part of this band again.

Just listened to that song. Honestly, the guitar tones are the same, but that's it. The HIL song has a much more straight blues sounding scale, it doesn't sound like country music to me at all.

I just moved to Tampa. I was at the Ace Enders show but I had no idea that this was happening. How did you hear about it? I would have really liked to be there and I'm really upset that I didnt know...

I agree with the idea, but even though I love TFOT, I'm not with you on the example. My favorite example of something like this would have to be The Format - "Dog Problems" 2:40 - 3:00.

Yes. Especially live. This gets me every time.
Someone also mentioned "Shake It Out", but 1:45 - 2:20 - "So speak to me"


The first time I saw Brand New was when they opened for Dashboard in 03. I...

How is this important enough to get posted on the front page? Shouldn't it be in the shows forum?

Just snapped my rock band pedal in half tonight (for the 4th time) playing Once. No fixing it this time. I'll need to go get the rock band 2 kit.

I'd have to double check, but I've been to this a few times and I don't remember having to show ID.

So upset that Lower D broke up before this tour happened. I think I'll still go to the show in Tampa though.

Someone at Cal Tech has made a chart relating music to SAT scores (http://musicthatmakesyoudumb.virgil.gr/). What do you think about it?

Good one. Also Moneen's song "Don't Ever Tell Locke What He Can't Do"

Edit: Just saw this one

I was afraid that would happen.
