The last few months have been full of buzz for Filligar. Their recent release, "Near or Far," reached the CMJ Top 200 for College Radio this spring for two consecutive weeks. They recently finished a nation-wide College Tour, and have opened for the Black Keys, the Cool Kids, Eve 6, B.o.B, Ponytail, and Via Audio, among others. Their live show is exciting and fresh, and their records have garnered praise from publications like the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, and popular blogs like I Guess I'm Floating. Recently, their music has been featured on a number of MTV programs (Real World: Hollywood, Buzzin', 16 and Pregnant, and College Life).
Filligar is Casey Gibson, Johnny, Pete, and Teddy Mathias.
