Physical Reaction/Live Show I've seen Saint Motel twice, most recently at the Taste Of Chicago opening up for Weezer last summer. If you have time in the day and enjoy pop music that's fun to dance to I would recommend stopping by their show.
Benny Goodman Live @ Toms
Puzzle Pieces: Guitar Center Sessions
Interesting Facts Since some band members went to film school their shows include a lot of cool visual effects and lights during the show. I'm hoping they play a later show during Thursday to see some of the effects I've heard about but I feel like it'll be an early weekend set.
Personal Notes I don't really have too much more to add. Like I said, I just thing they put on a fun show if you like to dance and like pop rock. I've never seen them as a headliner or in a festival setting so I'm excited to see what they're going to put on at Roo.
