Follow-up on fun

I wrote recently about the indie pop band fun (yes lowercase, yes one word, yes confusing). Just saw them in concert tonight at Chop Suey in Seattle, and they definitely lived up to their name. Despite some early sound trouble and hideous feedback, they played an energetic set that got a better response from the crowd than headliner HelloGoodbye‘s act. Single “Walk the Dog” is about as charming as it gets. They’re clearly not used to the fame yet — they mentioned several times that it was their CD debut night, and that they cracked the top 20 on iTunes, “beating Black Eyed Peas” — but their insecurity only supplements their earnest showmanship. Check out their album Aim and Ignite or their live show in a town near you.
