How bad are music nerds (us) freaking out over this right now? Robin Pecknold of Fleet Foxes (aka the band that everyone including parents likes) performed solo at a benefit for Seattle's all-ages music center The Vera Project. To draw people who actually make money, the venue served drinks with alcohol in them and Pecknold performed a set of Fleet Foxes songs as well as a bunch of covers, including Neutral Milk Hotel's "Two Headed Boy." Next week he'll be performing at a benefit for the survivors of the Great Pitchfork Mind Explosion of 2009. Jokes! But only because the entire set is jam city.
