First new band recommendation of 2008

The Airborne Toxic Event.

I'm not sure how I feel about the name, which is kind of code for I am not a huge fan, but I love the song "Sometime Around Midnight." They would definitely qualify as "indie rock." I hear a little bit of a stripped down Arcade Fire, though the lead singer has a far less urgent-sounding voice than Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler.

They're almost finished with their month-long residency at Spaceland. I am going to try my damndest to be there Thursday. It's $8 so I don't have the money excuse for this one. I do have the school night excuse, but seeing as I've basically never used that in my life, I don't think that'll make its debut in my life.
