Grasshopper Takeover. One of my favorite bands. I was reading something on the 311 website a few years ago, and Nick (the lead singer of 311) was like “Grasshopper Takeover is good, check them out”, so I did. Back then I downloaded all their MP3 they had available on their website, and I really liked them. It was my “clean my apartment on Saturday morning” music.
Then, I was at the Red Carpet, and I was with some friends, and I was like “Wtf? This band must be covering GTO!?!?”, but then I saw the poster, and they were playing!! How rad. So when they were done, I went and talked to them and they gave me a cd because I was like the only one there that had even heard of them.
Lately, I was on Napster, and saw they had a new album out, “Elephant Dreams”. I downloaded and purchased it, and it is a great album, I can listen to it through and through.
If you haven’t checked these guys out, do it. They are a little different but once you listen to them I bet you will like them.
