With their latest album "Dear Miss Lonelyhearts" released just months ago, they deliver a more polished thoughtful album than we have seen to date.  The addition of Dann Gallucci (Modest Mouse guitarist) on both sides of the soundboard adds a sound and feel you have to experience to appreciate.

Friday 9/27:
