    Yep, Dear Hunter/Deerhunter/Deer Hoof/Deer Tick/Dear and the Headlights. I know they're not all close in name or sound, but I still mix them all up.

    Ooh that reminds me, my band opened for The Rocket Summer back in May. We abbreviated it to TRS when discussing the show amongst ourselves because typing The Rocket Summer takes like 4 seconds too long. Anyways the day we announced the show our singer announced we were opening for The Ready Set.

    The War On Drugs and Cold War Kids. Don't even know why

    At first glance, Nick Cave/Nick Drake has always gotten me. I always think for a split second some new posthumous Nick Drake thing has come out.

    I always confuse Young Widows with Old Wounds. It because one of YW albums is called Old Wounds.

    I was born in a swamp, born with no clothes on

    Always think Coasta is finally releasing something new when instead it's some crappy brit-pop band.

    Bowling For Soup did the same thing with Stacy's Mom, they even recorded the cover and put it on ITunes so they could make some money off the confusion.

    Edit: It's also become a live staple for them

    Not mixed up, but whenever I'm skimming the news on the site and see "Frameworks" I get excited because I think we're getting new "Fireworks". I think others had the same problem because it was mentioned it one of threads once haha.

    Keep on moving. Busy street.

    Today I spent almost an hour listening to Vince Staples and Vic Mensa so I would stop mixing them up.
