A friend of mine's band (claim...) from the UK are currently touring North America. They always put on a sick show and they are also the most chill guys ever.
I won't bother trying to explain the type of music they play, just check out http://www.myspace.com/theheavy or their performance on the David Letterman show http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ds3yl7YjVyM
I thought i'd let you all know in case you can make it to a show near you. I would love it if any Newschoolers can show some support, I promise you'll have a sick night in return.
