Airborne Toxic Event

Laura got us tickets for a band who get played a lot on Indie 103.1 - they are (as yet) unsigned and building up a lot of hype. Certainly the Troubadour was packed out.

ATE were pretty cool - better than a lot of bands at the moment. Not terribly original though - bands nowadays seem to cherry-pick their components from other bands. For example, the guitarist sounded like he wanted to be in the Strokes, the girl who played keys and violin - Arcade Fire, the bass player - The Killers, the singer - Michael Stipe, the drummer - who cares right? Actually the drummer was very good...
