The Buddy System east coast dates, Georgia shows
I ran into Ryan from Athens ani-band The Buddy System at Popfest, and he told me about several fantastic shows at which they'll appear in the next month. An east coast tour starts next week, and it will be followed by Athens shows with the likes of Pylon (!!!), Ham1, Folklore, Iron Hero, and others. Their live show is a visual treat -- fun music backing great animation by a couple of band members.
I'll be seeing them again in about 9 hours...
