We Are Scientists w/Twin Tigers at Emo's

We Are Scientist may look a little more gray and a little less-scientific than they did when they first "burst" onto the blog-scene in the early aughts but they can still crank out some rockin', clever tunes. Their latest LP Barbara has really flown under the radar this year despite having a very disturbing, viral video (viewable after the break). This blogger had the chance to see them do their thing at Emo's already this year and I can testify to their kick-assedness. If you want to make a testimonial to the kick-assedness of We Are Scientists I recommend you get yourself some $13 tickets.

The We Are Scientists guys will, most likely, be taking to the outside stage around 11:45. So, make sure you get there by 10:30ish if you want to catch Twin Tigers and trust me when I tell you that you DO want to catch Twin Tigers. They have been around since 2008 but have only just released their first full-length LP this passed March. They played some high-profile gigs during SXSW and this tour with W.A.S. is a really great pairing. Also, as someone who works at a restaurant I really appreciate that this band was formed after 2 of its member met while working at a restaurant owned by Michael Stipe in Athens, GA. Wouldn't it be weird if Michael Stipe was your boss?
