1. They probably weren't on your radar when they dropped into town for a Wasted Space show last September.

2. To see what stage theatrics transpire from a band whose imagination spawned a 12-part feature-length movie musical comprised of its songs and a desert mind-trip.

3. You've been feeling the need to do a group hug/dance/sing-along during "Home" off debut album Up From Below.
