We were happy to see Silversun Pickups lead singer, Brian Aubert, return to The Current studio. We last saw the Los Angeles alt rock band when they performed in our studio in 2009.

A lot has happened for the band since then. Their new album, Neck of the Woods was our CD of the Week when it was released in May. Barb Abney called it a record that required repeated plays and featured the strongest vocal work of Brian's career.

While the band was in town for their performance at the State Theatre, Brian stopped by The Current studio to take over our airwaves for another edition of Theft of the Dial.
