Up and coming rock band at Snug Harbor tonight

Eastern Conference Champions play Snug Harbor Wednesday, June 22. I've been enjoying its new album "Speak-ahh" since it was released in April. The Pennsylvania-bred, Los Angeles-based group makes entertaining and thoughtful videos like the one above and the video for its song "The Box"(think The Alan Parson Project's "Don't Answer Me" meets "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"). Both are from its 2007 debut "Ameritown," but you can watch newer clips here.

You may already be familiar with the group's music. It had a track ("A Million Miles an Hour") on the "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" soundtrack, opened for Neon Trees at The Fillmore in May, and its song "Patience" was used in an NBA ad featuring Michael Jordan recently.

The Snug Harbor show also features Ultralush and Dead Rabbits. 9 p.m., $5.

    Did they bring the mellotron from the video with them?

  3. I thought only murdered rappers can be "up and coming".

  4. In reply to Jason Barker: You can follow me on twitter and I'll DM you contact info or you can call the Observer and get it.
