REVIEW: The NYC indie-rockers were high-energy but short on length and new songs in a rare non-festival gig Monday.

I know it's all subjective, but the popularity of this band is mystifying to me. Technically, their musicianship is non-existent.

The review totally discounted the fact that the audience was flipping out for almost the entire show. I think that's worth noting, don't you?

Umm how about this show was perfect. They were so energetic that Baio had sweat through his entire shirt after a few songs! And their songs aren't "dated"... the sold-out crowd was freaking out the whole time.

I'm wondering what show Mr. Riemenschneider was at as well. That was the most energetic, raucous shows I've seen in a long time. Part of it is the younger kids going crazy but there's nothing wrong with that. And nothing is worse than when a band leans too heavily on their new material. It's a sign of maturity and staying power to be able to go back into your catalogue and play different tunes. Great show, so what if it was 80-90 minutes? Find me an indie band that plays any longer than that. This isn't Phish.
