Math the Band

I'm guessing no one else is as freaked out as I am that:

1. There's a band playing in Greenwood, Delaware
2. There's a music festival in Greenwood, Delaware
3. Math the Band is playing a music festival in Greenwood, Delaware

Did you know that in 2000 the population of Greenwood, Delaware was 837 (335 households, and 211 families)? Yeah, that's what I'M saying!?!?!

But temporarily growing the population of Greenwood, Delaware (a town I grew up near) is not all that Math the Band is up to. They've got a new album releasing on June 16th and they'll be hitting towns all across the US — from Greenwood (Delaware) to Athens (Ohio) to our very own Seattle (Washington).

While you wait for them to hit your homie-town, here's a MtB song to give you a taste of what you'll get from a Math the Band show: "Why Didn't You Get a Haircut". I'm loving their spazzy, keyboard, gleeful shouts and pongo beats.
