Although I only know a couple of their songs, I am very excited to see them at Boston Calling; although, I was hoping The Replacements would be the unannounced act.

I got into them after The Hazards of Love came out, but it seems to me like The Crane Wife was their most popular. The King is Dead is a great CD also.
