Nothing More Rocked The Orbit Room with Chevelle [Videos/Photos]

Nothing More is a great band from Texas, and right now they're on tour with Chevelle and Middle Class Rut.  

The guys stopped by the 'GRD studios Monday before their show at The Orbit Room to play for a few WGRD Freeloaders Club winners and the staff, and then joined Jackie on the air to talk about the show.

Their "acoustic" setup is a bit different from most, as they run everything through a computer using Ableton Live to run effects and patch changes. They play the songs live, but the computer controls the sounds.  It's pretty bad ass, actually, and the audio I recorded is fantastic!
