Video: The War on Drugs, Live at Cameo Gallery

Back in October, I shared my love for the War on Drugs and their latest album Slave Ambient. But I know that these guys can really open things up on stage, so it was great to see some solid live video making the rounds today. Bleary Eyed Brooklyn recently nabbed some great live footage of the band playing at Cameo Gallery in Brooklyn. Check these out:

Thanks to Dog Gone Blog for digging up the vids for us.
