ON THE ROAD WITH MGMT

They met as freshmen at Wesleyan University,
and formed a band built on trippy, epic songcraft.
Today, Ben Goldwasser and Andrew VanWyngarden
have transcended the indie-rock genre with a hit record
— the aptly titled Oracular Spectacular — and are
currently traveling the U.S. on a 12-city tour
with elder statesman Beck.

''We consider it a fluke that we play music that people like — people who don't even necessarily listen to indie rock,'' says Goldwasser.

The band has a TV on their bus, but Goldwasser says, ''We mostly watch VH1 Classic, or maybe a football game. Getting [our songs] placed on shows like Gossip Girl — we're 
flattered, but I don't think we've gotten the full meaning of it [because we haven't really seen it]. Still, a lot of people have told us about it!''

''We're really grateful Beck has taken us on the road with him,'' says Goldwasser.
