ode to manchester

and no i am not talking about the recently crowned english premier league champions but annie’s recent post about atlanta bands getting national attention got me thinking about another band from the atl getting some national attention; manchester orchestra.

of course it’s no surprise to readers of this space or my personal blog that i am a huge fan (see here, here and here; but they are also gaining a national reputation after opening for pop punk rockers brand new. they were a spin artist of the day and picked as one of rolling stone’s 10 artists to watch.

want to see what all the fuss is about? you can check them out tonight at the masquerade where the are opening for say anything and saves the day.

you will not be disappointed.

    Crap! I should have mentioned that they are in the ATL video, too. That’s what I get for writing things too quickly. Apologies to your faves. :-)

    Tried to catch them at the show last night, but heard the last three notes of their set. Since when does the masquerade open it’s doors at 6:00, and have the opening band start on time?
