I waited for alnost an hour at ACL to get a glimpse of Mr. Chu doing his thang. It was quite embarrassing to be surrounded by teens smoking weed and wearing fake wayfarers. I guess you can say it was worth it but I'm sure you would do the same after watching these videos.

The Morning Benders
Never judge a band by their first album.
I purchased The Morning Benders' first album back in 2008 after hearing great reviews via itunes. Sadly, I was not impressed by any means.
My roomie convinced me to watch a video off their second album titled, Big Echo. After seeing this beautiful video, I was curious to see what the rest of their album was like. Big Echo is much better than Talking Through Tin Cans. There is improvement, growth, and a refreshing sound that emerged. Lead singer Christopher Chu is the main reason why I can't help but love this band. He is adorable with his pug eyes, pigeon like moves, and John Mayer ish sex faces onstage.
