though, Molly didn't exactly get an amazing reply from the audience when she made fun of our cities name ("Cologne sounds like colon") and mentioned that she loves our waffles (...even the band facepalmed). oh well... ::)

Finally got to see them live last night. They opened for The Strokes at a huge venue and my bandmate had an extra ticket.

They had a few alternate intros for songs, but it was more or less the same stuff they've been playing for a while, not that I have a problem with that.

Hopefully I'll get a chance to see them as a headliner one of these days.

That's how I feel. The bands I like tend to be openers and it's disappointing. I saw Japanese Breakfast as a headlines, which was awesome, but I balanced that out with seeing Deep Sea Diver as an opener. They were great, but the set was a bit short, and the headliner sucked. I keep hoping for some news of a new Alvvays album in the next year or so...

Just got into this band! And Seapony! Seapony is also super brilliant, slightly more garagey. It’s nice to have straightforward guitar melodies again! Her voice is very Sundays-ish. It took me a minute to warm up to its lack of bass or midrange haha! But now some of those first album songs are playing on my Upstairs Radio (my brain) and I like it. I even thought I wrote a new riff but then realized it was one of her vocal melodies!

Both bands SUPER remind me of Heavenly. Ah Heavenly...

:-* Heavenly.
I'd also recommend checking out Veronica Falls (2010s) and Tiger Trap (1990s) if you haven't yet.
