Day #341 Japandroids - Never Alone
Brand: American Apparel
Source: Went to see the Japandroids last night at the Echoplex . I have been in love with “Celebration Rock” ever since it came out, and was really stoked to see it live. It was not a let down at all, all the poet and energy i wanted + a great crowd that clapped, fingerprinted and sang along that made it all that much better. its funny i forgot at one point during the show that is just a two piece. I guess it is easy to forget since the band has such a full sounding performance. At one point i even had to walk all way around club to see if there was a third man on stage playing…nope. just two dudes that looked like Sean Carlson from FYF playing their hearts out.
Fucking good show, so i picked this shirt up too. I put them in the “Good punk bands of 2012 to listen to” category with Fidlar and Cloud Nothings.
