Stars of Track and Field at Bumbershoot

Stars of Track and Field
I didn't know much about Stars of Track and Field but that they're from Portland, and I really love the song "With You." It was a pleasant surprise to find that they're a band of hot dudes, two them even stepping it up a notch with sexy stubble. One surprising thing about SoTaF was that the drummer was manning the Mac. It makes sense, beats-wise, but I think of Jeff Tweedy leaning over his Mac when Wilco went electronic (Judas!), and it's surprising to see the Mac at the back of the stage. Their performance was great, and they played "With You" to much approbation.

The bassist from Seattle's The Long Winters joined Stars of Track and Field for their last song, a mad rockfest. It was fun to see him wearing a t-shirt I have at home.
