Good, but usual, PV/LFK, let's boost the gurls to show how hip we are, KC band status. Paw, Get Up Kids, Pedal Jets, Rainmakers. Not their fault. Every band is actually a sell out, whore. There is always a hidden back story, someone acting as doorman.

They were pretty good and they took it as far as they could by staying in KC. If they had been serious about it they would have moved to Austin or Nashville.

I guess being friends with Tim Finn, the fat guy Chris at Ink and all the local hipsters wasn't enough. Hope their barista or waitress career "plays out" better than their music one did.
