What they say about themselves: "Chairlift are a three-piece with dueling female and male vocals that formed with the intent of making music for haunted houses - instead they ended up with something more akin to the Top Gun soundtrack." Okay, let's check this out:

'Evident Utensil' - Chairlift

They play tonight, opening up for Ariel Pink, at Echoplex at 8:30 p.m. (they switched to go on first)

Also: There's a fundraiser tonight for the F Yeah Fest featuring Crystal Antlers, Brother Reade, Tweak Bird, Totally Michael & Slang Chickens. Why does a festival need a fundraiser? Sean Carlson explains in an e-mail that even though last was a huge hit, it was also a huge way for the producers to get into $15,000 of debt. What happened was their financial backer pulled out days before the announcement of the lineup last year. They had to choose between canceling five years of work or going on with the show and risking the debt. So tonight is there to help raise some money to keep the event alive. It's $6 to get in to the 9:00 p.m. event and is happening at the 6th St Warehouse (1269 E. 6th St. LA, CA)
