Posting this in honor of this week’s DC show. Had such a fun time at this one. Band came out with FEMA hats on during the second set with couch tour money being donated to hurricane Sandy relief, and they launched into Help > Slip. At one point in the show, someone opened up bags of that spider web decoration shit and it spread over the entire audience. Girlfriend is Better is the highlight for me.
