so dreamy - oh spinto band

It seems like I'm almost always late for shows nowadays, like I can't keep up with the whirlwind of my life. Luckily, even though I missed out seeing Apartment at Delancey by a good half an hour on Friday, as a result I managed to make it EARLY to (FINALLY) see the Spinto Band @ Mercury Lounge and boy was I glad that I did. Neverbefore have I seen so much young (they are all between the ages of 19 and 22!) indie boy cuteness packed onto one stage.

Their entire set was delightful, and while the crowd seemed most excited to hear their straight to your heart single "Oh, Mandy" which has been circulating around the net for months now, every song was just as endearing as the next. I had no choice but to buy a yellow band t-shirt -- it had a friggin PAC MAN on it --, but then I lost it (thanks for the tequila shot, Jay). Spinto Band has an album out on Bar-None records, and with tracks with titles like "Spy Vs Spy" and "Atari" they are sure to win the hearts of geeks and indie girls alike. They even have a blog about their tour, which is titled Where Will Our Van Break?... LOVE IT.
