the encore :)

yeah...that one certainly caught my ear the first time i heard it! 
the new album is really good and worth getting...catchy songs!
the cd release party was cool...they were all dressed up and the stage 
had silver foil haning behind them. they played most of the new album 
plus a few other tracks, as well as the big star cover and "sheila comes 
around" during the encore.
