Gotta love The Front Bottoms. I first started listening to them when they came to Athens in September. Even though I missed them when they were here (I had already bought Bright Eyes tickets for the same night), I looked them up and was immediately hooked.
Luckily, they came to Atlanta this month, so I was able to get a second shot at seeing them. And this time, I got to interview them. They were great. The interview was sort of a drive-by gauntlet of questions being fired at them as quickly as possible, since I was not the only interviewer on the list. However, after they finished up with everything, we still had about an hour before the show was to start. During this time, we got to hang out, have a beer, and chat with them. Conclusion: these guys are awesome.
Oh yeah…and the show was great, too! They gave a really energetic, fantastic performance, and I was extremely impressed. Long story short: this band has got it, and you should definitely check them out.
