Another from ACL: The White Rabbits. They played early on Sunday morning and so the crowd was much smaller than it should have been.
I thought they were great live. They have a ton of percussion. They had both a kit and a set of tympani going in nearly every song, and then sometimes a third member would join in. It was both fun to watch and to listen to.
