I really enjoy the one with the man carrying his babies and using the touch sensor to open his car. "For when you're carrying two bab...

They remind me of a mix between The Lumineers and The Head and the Heart. Little bit of rock, little bit of folk - great vocals and some southern love.

Has anyone just gone to see an opening act?
Feb 2011 I went to One Eyed Jacks to see The Head and the Heart open for The Walkmen, but didn't stay for The Walkmen (I know I know...judge away). They took forever to come on, and I really only wanted to see TH&TH.
Anyone else do this?...

Anyone see her play before?...
| Music Board|| Do you sometimes find yourself getting music for getting's sake? - gokevin on 6/20/12 at 3:24 pm|
I have always been a music fiend, but lately I find I'm getting new music not because I may like it, but because I feel this need to "keep up."
I do like having a large library of music, but I feel like I'm less and less connected to the music I get.
Does anyone else feel that way? :confuse...
