I am interrupting my normal book reviews to inform you of an awesome band that I love:
Twenty One Pilots!
I saw them in concert a couple months ago. They opened at an Owl City/Neon Trees concert. I didn't know much about them, though I had heard Holding on to You on the radio. Anyways, they opened with this:
Yes, pretty much exactly that. Skeleton masks, jumping off the piano. This was a fairly small gymnasium at a college in Adrian, MI, but they played it with an astounding amount of enthusiasm. I really loved their music, which mixes rock with rap. My favorite song is Migraine:
I also love Car Radio, which is really profound and existential:
I also really want to give the guy a hug after that.
Anyways, if you're still reading, give Twenty One Pilots a shot. Maybe you already know them, though, in which case: go you! They seem to be getting bigger, playing a lot of festivals and opening a lot of shows. They have a song playing on the two rock stations near me. Twenty One Pilots originated in Columbus, so I thought it would be nice to show some love for my state.
In conclusion: listen to Twenty One Pilots. If they are playing near you, for God's sake man/woman, go! Thank you for your time.
