The sweat and swagger of Les Savy Fav.

December 4, 2007
It's hard to believe these former art-school kids have been around over ten years now. Where does our youth go! If you've caught Les Savy's show lately, it's obvious their excitement for being in a band hasn't worn off. If anything, these guys are more stoked to be doing what they love for as long as they have.

Going to a Les Savy show is a guaranteed pick-me-up no matter how shitty your day was. What's more uplifting than some good old-fashioned dissonant, herky jerky, bratty spastic rock and roll played by five guys who know they have the coolest night job of any of their friends?

Starting with a mutual appreciation for bands like Sunny Day Real Estate, Fugazi, and Nation of Ulysses, the members of Les Savy Fav went and created a pure rock spectacle entirely their own. There should just be a new genre called Les Savy Rock. But then again, Les Savy would be the only ones who could pull it off.


Les Savy Fav play The El Rey Theatre, on Saturday, December 12th.
