Manchester Orchestra @ Oxford Arts Factory
Manchester Orchestra at Oxford Arts Factory, July 2009 (sideshow for Splendour in the Grass). These guys are my second favourite band in the world. Even though their music is quite loud and dirty, Andy Hull is an amazing lyricist, and writes beautiful melodies and harmonies. They also appear to be the funniest guys around, which makes me love them even more. "Mean Everything to Nothing" is currently my album of the year - there's not one track that I dislike, or skip. BEST.
