Event details

Rooftop Vigilantes' high-energy blend of blitzkrieg pop and complete drunken chaos makes for a solid night of entertainment. From the Vigilantes’ soused beginnings to their multiple tours of late, the group has met every challenge with a raised shot glass and a grammatically challenged song title (i.e. “Charley Want Mario Chalmers”). Check out our podcast interview with the band. When he wasn't opening for Coldplay as the trumpet player for Shearwater, Jordan Geiger found time in 2008 to finish his debut record as Hospital Ships. "Oh Ramona" featured guest turns from Spencer Goertz-Giffen (The Kinetiks), Josh Adams (Ghosty) and Evan Saathoff (Evan Saathoff) amongst others. More pensive than recent releases from his Geiger's band Minus Story but no less ambitious, the album is an intimate lo-fi bedroom pop record recorded in mighty hi-fi. The Show Is the Rainbow is a batsh*t crazy, multimedia, one-man band from Nebraska.
