Silversun Pickups had their record release party for Better Nature at Fingerprints Music in Long Beach, CA. Brian and Nikki performed an acoustic set that included: “Nightlight”, “Circadian Rhythm”, “Panic Switch”, “Latchkey Kids”, “Kissing Families”, “The Pit”, “Lazy Eye”, and “Growing Old is Getting Old.” The two would introduce songs, exchange banter, tell stories and Brian disappeared once mid-song to get some beer.
The store was packed and every single fan was mesmerized with the duo. Afterwards, the entire band was on hand to sign records for everyone in attendance. They chatted up with fans and were delighted to meet everyone in line.
The event was a nice treat to introduce the new album and a rare opportunity to spend some time with the band. The atmosphere was chill and welcoming, exactly like SSPU.
