The 80's synth-pop band was good and excessively hip in their tight pants. They also were extremely at ease.
"It's a nice time to start drinking," said guitarist Nick McCarthy (its was 12:30 p.m.)
"I just realized we missed 1/3 of the song, I just enjoyed you guys so much," said lead singer Alex Kapranos.
Of course, they ended with their comforting hit single "Take Me out" that starts like "So if you're lonely, you know I'm here waiting for you."
It was an 104.9 exclusive before their show tonight. Their next one is Switchfoot.
