Silversun Pickups

Some terrible scene girl pictures with my point n' shoot Canon Powershot! These are the best of the worst from a music fan who could never call herself a photographer, even if she had a Nikon D90 weighing down her neck.

Basist Nikki Monninger sings with an ethereal, demure disposition, but she wails on the bass like nobody's business. Brian Aubert and drummer Christopher Guanlao delivered an impassioned, aggressive performance that would knock the Wayfarers off any indie listener.
The set was everything I expected and more. Where I anticipated a clean performance onstage, I didn't think it would be a near synonym of their mastered recordings. Even the chaos of synth breakdowns and mixing from Joe Lester and Tony Hoffer were organized.
Here's the set list, so kindly passed on to me by Nikki Monninger:
