explanation
so a few months ago my girlfriends friend mentioned a 1950s themed dance that the library was throwing and i was like WANT LIVE MUSIC and she wa slike yeah sure.  so we meant to practice really hard and do a great set but we only practiced like twice.  but we spent one practice entirely doing a custom arrangement of somewhere over the rainbow and then we ended up rushing through the other 6 songs in one rehearsal

<edit> she just reminded me that we actually came up with the idea ourselves for the sock hop and suggested it to shannon.

Good tracks, good! I like Johnny B Good. Also in that first picture you look like you just might pull out a Katana from your back.

haha well i am normally energetic as hell when playing guitar in swansaw (way more than the last swansaw videos we put up) but I didnt know what to do as just a singer.

and yeah, we did not practice much.  I thought we did ok for most of them though, like we messed some shit up but you know.

@headphonics: took down the vids because I don't really like the way I was singing in them.  Will put up new ones eventually.

I thought In Dreams came out in like 1962.  If you wanted to be more energetic there, you could have just studied the screne from Blue Velvet.

But enough of that, you guys are actually surprisingly adept to this kind of music. Also, the  pictures are pretty funny.
