Dinosaur Feathers on SPIN.com

Just last week, we played what has to be one of our favorite shows ever at the Hopscotch Music Festival in Raleigh. As if not's that enough, SPIN Magazine was there and noted the shows as one of the 8 Best Moments of the entire festival. We're flattered...

SPIN's 8 Best Moments of the Hopscotch Music Festival

"Brooklyn's Dinosaur Feathers are plenty fun to listen to, but even more fun to watch. Between the mohawked drummer, left-handed bassist rocking a Hofner (just like Beatle Paul McCartney), and bespectacled Stewart Copeland look-alike on keyboards, they offer up a spectrum-ranging study in visual contrasts. Playing on borrowed gear at Kings Barcade on Thursday, they took the skittery rhythms of Vampire Weekend and rocked 'em up.
Their songs bounced back and forth between ambling groove and jittery sprint, featuring drums that verged on wildly overplayed. But it was cool, and the band dug the crowd as much as the crowd dug the band. "It's pretty cool for you to be here right when we started to play," guitarist Greg Sullo said. "We love you, Raleigh! We'll be back in October!" You could tell the crowd marked their mental calendars."
