Please allow me to officially jump on The Alarmists bandwagon...

Last Friday I decided to check out some local talent at the HowWasTheShow.com sponsored The TV Sound's CD release party @ Varsity Theater. I ran into David, Andrea, and the rest of the really nice and cool HWTS peeps (funny post by Andrea here). Also on the bill for the evening were opening bands The Alarmists and This World Fair. The Alarmists, who I was mainly there for, really blew me away... they sounded really great live,with a distinctive British wall-of-sound. Reminded me of Elbow quite a bit...

HowWasTheShow has a full review and great pictures of the evening and prior Alarmists gigs.

Reading about them being good is one thing. Seeing them and realizing it for yourself is another. Don't trust us. Try 'em, you'll like 'em.
