We Are Scientists @ Johnny Brenda’s, Philadelphia

We Are Scientists are not…scientists. They are, however, one of the most exciting bands to catch in concert. Keith Murray and Chris Cain, joined by Max Hart on keys and Adam Aaronson on drums, packed out Philadelphia’s Johnny Brenda’s and tore the place up.

We Are Scientists, while great recorded, are far better live. An album simply cannot capture the band’s mighty energy, undeniable on-the-fly wit or just how good looking they really are. The quartet fully engaged the crowd — Keith become one with it — while blasting through a fiery set of songs from both With Love and Squalor and this year’s Brain Thrust Mastery (which we’re giving away below!). The latter will see the release of its third and final single, the “Impatience,” drop on September 8th.
