Last week I went to see one of my favorite bands, The Temper Trap, play at Soho and they were even better than I expected. Originally from Melbourne Australia, the group of four lads—Dougy Mondagi, Jonathan Ahern, Lorenzo Sillitto and Toby Dundas—are not only creators of some of my favorite new tunes, but they also happen to be friendly, well mannered rockstars who I got the chance to hang out with afterwards. They played all my favorite songs—like “Soldier On,” and “Sweet Disposition”—and had the crowd cheering for more by the end. I’ve been listening to their debut album Conditions non-stop lately, and it just keeps getting better. I highly recommend checking them out if you haven’t already!
