Soft Targets Back Home Safe and Sound

Well, I'm pleased to report that the Soft Targets' safe return to sleepy little Tallahassee has been confirmed, after their whirlwind September tour of the East coast. When I sat down with them Monday night over a couple of beers, Jesse, Nate, and Stephen all seemed healthy, in good spirits and eager to get back out on the road again soon.

While they were out this time around, they generated an impressive amount of media coverage, so this update includes a round-up of some highlights from the reviews and various other forms of consensual love they've gotten recently from the press. Check back soon for more updates. The Basement Tapes performances and video interview should also be out within the next week or so.

Onion AV Club - Eh, you win some, you lose some. This review gets it all wrong, but at least they tried.
