Manchester Orchestra - "I've Got Friends" Video

This is sort of the indie rock version of Garth Brooks' classic "Friends In Low Places" and I'm totally cool with that. Aside from the chorus, which flips the relationship, the two don't have much in common except that they both make excellent drinking songs.

Just by chance I caught Manchester Orchestra the last time they were in Portland when I went to see fun. Although I'd never heard them before that night they won me over with a fantastic show. They are coming back to the Hawthorne Theater this Friday and playing with The Features, who are still touring behind Some Kind of Salvation, which has stayed in regular rotation for two years now. It should be a great show.
