It's dark, your hoodie's wet, the wind hates you, the things you love are closing at an alarming rate, and you haven't heard a song that's made you happy since August. What you need is a dose of BOAT. Loud, gorgeous, reverby guitars? Yes. A let's-just-have-a-fun-time attitude? Yes. A charming frontman? Yes. Songs about ice-cream trucks, haircuts, and punctuation? Yes, but not in an annoying way. I will be dancing. Don't you want to dance? Other bands on the bill: the awesome "Awesome" and the dangerous Harvey Danger.
