We Are Scientists and Rewards at The Troubadour – Photo Gallery

We Are Scientists are just a straight up damn good band. They bring that addictive indie rock sound with a hard edge. Heavy on the guitars and textured sounds, seeing them live surpasses just listening to them on your iPod. Although you can easily listen to these guys on repeat for hours on end, you […]
