Leaders in driving, energetic post-garage, and punning near-anachronistic band names, The Walkmen distractedly amble into Royale tonight after almost getting hit by a bus ’cause they can’t hear a damn thing with those earbuds in.
If this “portable music” catches on we’re all doomed. Doomed we tell you!
