That the Elders are actually quite young is both blessing and curse. (They were old enough to play a fest in Portland, for example, but too young to stay and watch Mudhoney.) But the fire and sugar they force into each of their garage-pop gems isn't from some tired formula — that's pure teen spirit they're tapping. And it's worth catching now, before they run out of it.
"Touring all the time kind of makes normal life seem boring," says Clayton. "It's just weird when you come home and you wake up and think, 'Where am I going today? Oh, the living room.' "
