"Shawn Harris and Jake Griggs are best friends, and both singers. It's just heaps easier. They make records, print art, and do parties at their house; first in Sydney, and currently in Los Angeles. Recently, they hitch-hiked to NYC from Barstow, with only a ukulele, and guitar, and a camera."

They bring their party to Smalls this Saturday on a bill with Foxy Shazam, Cadaver Dogs and Dazzletine. Score tickets here. Shawn and Jake were nice enough to participate in this edition of First/Last.
