Happy Monday, Solid State. How was your weekend? Sun-soaked, I trust.
Me? Why, it was swell, thanks! In addition to two straight days of pretending it was spring, I ran into a friend on Friday evening whom I hadn't seen in a while. She had just returned from a week in Hipster Eden, er, Portland, Oregon and was positively aflutter over a band called Morning Teleportation, gushing with comparisons to Akron/Family and all sorts of other delicious psychedelic rock goodness. In short, she piqued my curiosity. Conveniently enough, the band just so happens to be in town tonight — presumably after teleporting this morning — opening for Cage the Elephant at the Higher Ground Ballroom. Here's a clip.
