After the April Smith and the Great Picture show on Monday night at M-Theory, we dropped by the Casbah to catch Little White Teeth and then made our way up to Soda Bar to catch Brother. We missed Family Wagon, but arrived in time for Republic of Letters. There weren't a ton of people there. but there it was fun to hang out with lots of my radio friends like Pyles, Robin Roth, Capone, Rowley, and Cory. Brother was once again awesome, even better than SXSW, and with some serious stage swagger, it felt like everyone in the room was thinking we were witnessing something special. Like when I saw Blur at the Backdoor at SDSU. The band members, with all their attitude onstage were super cool offstage once again, and I've already heard some buzzing that Brother will be back at least once, if not twice this year. Don't miss them if that happens to be true.
