Your New Favorite Band: Les Savy Fav

Big hat tip to Jack for the pointer to a clip from last night's Conan O'Brien show (worth watching in its entirety) featuring "lifelong Caps fan, Syd Butler, bass player in Les Savy Fav, rocking his Caps/Ovechkin colors." Awesome.

As for what's going on with the lead singer, I haven't a clue.

According to this article, Butler is from DC and was a self-proclaimed "Dischord(Records) brat".

Assuming he grew up a Caps fan, going to games at the Caps Center in the 80s.
