The Three O’Clock

I featured the new Three O’Clock retrospective on my KUCI show Saturday. This is one of the rare tracks included on the album. The band is playing tonight at Fingerprints in Long Beach, a show for everyone who pre-ordered the album, and yes, count me among that crowd.

You can read more about them on my much ignored music blog, 3hive.com.

But what you should really do is listen.
