Bassist Nikki Monninger of Silversun Pickups is pictured above rockin’ out at the Capitol Hill Block Party in July 2006, playing through an Ampeg SVT810AV and a SVTCL head.
The band recently toured with Australian rockers Wolfmother and will open for Snow Patrol on their 2007 Spring tour. In 2006, Silversun Pickups toured the States back and forth so many times, the band lost track of exactly where they played. This is one of the best live bands I’ve seen perform in a long time. If they come your way you gotta get out and see them!
Heading up the band is is Brian Aubert on guitar and vocals, Nikki on bass, Christopher Guanlao on drums and Joe Lester on keyboards. This L.A. band got their start playing clubs in SoCal and began to draw a strong following with the release of their Pikul EP in July of 2005. The amazing full length album Carnavas was released in July of 2006.
