While I was at the show, I spoke to a slightly intoxicated Dan, lead guitarist of the Wolf Parade, a garage band that could teach Julian Casablancas the proper way to Stroke. They tread the same earth as bands like the Constantines or even Hot Hot Heat but they have a broader range and more of an edge. Dan informed me that the Wolf Parade has a couple of labels salivating in the continental USA and that they've been in contact with one of the members of Modest Mouse. This should bode well for them since Modest Mouse is an indie stalwart with both street cred and an impressive fan base to boot.
As soon as Win fires me back an email, I'll tap together a proper concert review/interview. Now, I must get back to my Google News. Over, and out.
