I know this is SUPER last minute, but we are having a party here tonight at our loft and they [fun] are playing. food, drinks – I think I even saw jello shots. Let me know if you want to come! I can even set up an interview with them if you want.
Thats sweet. I guess i have written about them a few times…
AIM AND IGNITE (Nettwerk), the debut album from Nate Ruess (The Format), Andrew Dost (Anathallo) and Jack Antonoff (Steel Train)—who are fun., breaks onto the Billboard Top 200 today at #71 with over 8,000 albums sold in its first week. AIM AND IGNITE also earns the #3 spot on the Internet Album Chart, #20 spot on the Alternative Album Chart, and #24 spot on the Top Digital Album Chart. Additionally, the album debuted at #46 on the CMJ Top 200.
why is it great news?
because its so nice to see creative, uplifting music get rewarded with a modicum of popularity.
their show the other night at Spaceland had the kids waiting around the block to get in. once in, people were singing to every song – EVEN THOUGH THE CD WAS JUST 6 DAYS OLD!
