Plain White T's
The Plain White T's quietly released a pop-punk album called Every Second Counts in September 2006. However, thanks to the surprise success of the ubiquitous single "Hey There Delilah" — which originally appeared on 2005's All That We Needed — Counts was recently certified gold and the band got to perform on NBC's Today show. But contrary to those events, the Plain White T's are no one-hit wonders; in fact, the band has spent the past ten years in dirty rock clubs and stinky vans. The followup, Big Bad World, was released in 2008, not doing too shabbily on the charts, either. At the band's show this Wednesday at Culture Room, expect a mix of material from all five of the act's full-lengths — and a crowd ranging from hard-core fans to recent converts. Whichever camp you fall into, just don't be the dude who requests the hit single. Trust us, they'll get to it.
