I am drawn to their music, message and political views on social issues. My husband and I have been big fans since we actually met, at. UM show. We have burly man crushes on the guys and we both have made a huge network in the community if like minded folks. Summer Skool was flat out Fire Island style improvisation. I will say we are looking forward to the new album because the last couple haven’t done it to us. We still are suckers for the old tunes, and BTW Hajimemeshite was our wedding song. They are the most accepting and open to trying new things and people on the entire scene and for that I love them.
