Praise for football, etc.:
“…their gorgeous indie emo sound came over perfectly. The newer songs were exciting as they showcased a band with a knack of writing consistently enjoyable songs and hinted at the fact that another full length from them will be just as brilliant as their last one. Everything about the set was enjoyable…seeing them play live seemed to heighten my admiration. “- Is This Thing On?
