There’s just 12 full days until the main event- ELECTION DAY and everyone knows how important it is to get out to utilize your right and voice and VOTE! That’s why folks are working overtime to spread the word.
Including celebrities like the very popular rock band, Neon Trees. They were on hand for MTV’s 2012 Rock the Vote Concert Monday night. Now in case you’ve been under a rock for the past three years, or you just don’t get down with Alternative/Pop Rock music, I’m pretty sure you know at least one, if not a few of their songs.

However, if you don’t… don’t worry, I’m sure you’ll love them by the end of this article. The “Everybody Talks” group (that’s one of their songs tearing up the radio right now) played the outdoors venue at the Mizner Park Amphitheater in downtown Boca Raton, Florida two hours before President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney went toe to toe in their last 2012 Presidential debate.
However, before I rocked out at the concert, I caught up with the band back stage and asked them what voting meant to them and why they thought it was so important to get out and Rock the Vote. I gained some insight into the band and who they are during this interview, while learning about their fashion sense along with their musical influences/inspiration.
Plus, see what Elaine had to say about being the only girl in a band filled with boys.
Neon Trees Interview
Neon Trees are as cool and awesome as their music. Their personalities shined like the stars in the sky and their hearts seemed to glitter like little flecks of gold. They had a quiet confidence, yet a quirkiness that would make anyone feel at home.
Featured on the video below are two of Neon Trees hit songs, “1983” and “Animal!” Jut two of the many songs they performed that night. Oh, and in case you were wondering, Neon Trees are amazing in concert!

I couldn’t take my eyes off of Tyler, he really knows how to put on a show and neither could anyone else! While enjoying the gritty perfection of his voice I couldn’t help but to wonder what he would do next as he went from playing the keyboard while singing to doing some little diddy of a dance move while singing!
He and Elaine are beautiful singing machines, and Elaine can pound those drums with the best of them, while Chris and Branden are cool guitar aficionados who provide some pretty cool harmonizing vocals themselves.
Yep, it’s official, they’re my latest band crush! Love them!
