    The Killers – coming soon to a theater, school, mall, whatever near you. You get the picture. Hey, I couldn’t think of a more appropriate name for a band that’s the product of the most violent nation on the face of the earth. Can I bring my AK-47 to the concert?

    The Killers is an awesome band. Not so “new” anymore but still relatively new… and a helluva lot better than all all the electronica shit bands (e.g. The XX) being pushed these days. I have come to like “The Killers” quite a bit and they have enough great songs to put on a killer live show.

    aka- Good idea Hearne…. keep em coming Big Guy.

    These guys kind of remind me of good ole Freddie Mercury and Queen.

    I think they should get Phish. They played an awesome show at starlight last year.

    Plus we could see Craig try to fight Trey Anastasio when he mixes up “David Bowie” and “Maze”.
