Silversun Pickups have come a long way from the "horrifying" three-song demo cassette that first got them started at the College Music Journal convention.

Named after an L.A. liquor store that they've lived above for years, the band played a stripped-down, acoustic version of several songs from their debut full-length album, "Carnavas," and talked with Bill DeVille about the bands they've been compared to (My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive) and their experience in the L.A. music scene.

Songs performed: "Well Thought-out Twinkles," "Future Foe Scenarios," and "Rusted Wheel."
