Open Bar: Hooray For Earth

When we asked Hooray For Earth's lead singer Noel Heroux where he wanted to play, given the entire circumference of Heathers Bar, he responded with, "well, I usually play on the floor." So that's what he did, despite whatever New York bar cooties had to be crawling around down there. Missing one semi-important accessory—a mic stand—Heroux improvised with a chair. He played, "True Loves" only once, using temperamental pedals. The result sounds a lot like the mastered track, but feels more like an intimate rehearsal.
