LES SAVY FAV to drop first live album, cover Pixies, Misfits, Nirvana, CCR & Love

Mark your calendars. On April 28th one of my favorite bands (and yours too, hopefully), Les Savy Fav will drop their first ever live album "After The Balls Drop", which documents the band’s storied 3:00AM performance at Bowery Ballroom in New York City on January 1st, 2008. Fifteen tracks total, with covers of songs by the Pixies, Misfits, Nirvana, CCR & Love, as well as some of my favorite Les Savy Fav tunes (this will be a digital only release via Frenchkiss Records). The only thing that could make this post better is an announcement about LSF playing a date here in Atlanta, which the word on the street is that we just might be getting that good news soon. Fingers are crossed.
