Ben Gibbard Is The Ryan Dempster Of Indie Rock







We're not about to ask you to come along with us for some ridiculous Stereogum meets FreeDarko (except different sport, but you get it) metaphor here. We mean this quite literally. Dempster spends his days hurling some mean sliders down toward the plate for the Chicago Cubbies. If eyewitness reports of yesterday's Seattle Mariners game are to be trusted, the DCFC frontman did just the same when he threw out the ceremonial first pitch. Oh yeah, they played some of their crazy rock n' roll music too. Gibbard's knack for finding the strike zone totally makes up for taking all the childhood joy out of "Take Me Out To The Ball Game." Their Fogerty cover is legit though. Check it above.
