Their show this past July was pretty meh, including the mini freak out the lead singer/guitarist had. They need some kind of stage presence, like... anything at all.
That's too bad... My friend was at the Ottawa Bluesfest show where the Mark Kozelek issue happened and he said that the band sounded great. Didn't mention anything about the stage presence so hopefully that's something they improve on.
I'd like to present Rustie as likely for a few reasons:
a. He had a Seattle show scheduled for November that he cancelled. b. When he rescheduled his tour (happening now), he didn't include a Seattle date, but did include a Portland one. c. He is playing both Governor's Ball and Bonnaroo d. He appears to have nothing scheduled for Sasquatch weekend.
Jan. 25 - Death From Above 1979 w/ Metz & PS I Love You @ MacEwan Hall Jan. 30 - SOLIDS @ The Palomino Feb. 12 - Rich Homie Quan @ Marquee Feb. 26 - Viet Cong @ Commonwealth April 16 - Caribou @ Flames Central
Also if they don't play Sasquatch (and I'm sure they won't), then I'm going to see Neutral Milk Hotel in Missoula in June before I head overseas for a month.
