Bob Boilen of NPR saw 462 shows last year. He made a list of his favorite 243 performances of 2012 and put People Get Ready in at number one.

“No single show took my breath away the way this one did – part rock concert, part performance art, part dance, all perfectly melded together. Having seen so many dudes with guitars during the CMJ Music Marathon, it was incredibly refreshing to find a group challenging and changing the norm. It felt like a band creating a music video for every piece of music performed. I hope People Get Ready take this show, Specific Ocean, on the road. If they do, GO!”

PGR took Bob’s cue and are now going on the road with Deerhoof in April and preparing a tour of Specific Ocean in the fall.

“You’d have to be a committed wallflower to not wish yourself up there with them – bouncing and grinning and throwing every muscle into the music…” wrote Anna Weiner in their cover story for Deli Magazine.  Many nice words have been said about the band recently, but “GO!” is probably our favorite and PGR’s motto in 2013.
