Our good friend Will Abramson (of Keys 2 the City fame) hooked us up with the premiere of this clip of WAVVES playing new song "To the Dregs" live at Different Fur Studios in San Francisco. Look for this song to be released soon on 7" via PPM. Shot by Will and Nate Chan (of Takeaway Shows) for their new project, Yours (coming soon):

WAVVES plays a few shows on the East Coast this week before embarking on his first European tour. He'll be in TX in March for SXSW.
