Neon Trees is already a fun, unique band, so when they hit the stage they are just a ball of energy. Well, at least lead Singer Tyler Glenn is. And with their new album, Sleeping With A Friend, out, they have even more material to work with. If you didn't get tickets to their sold out show at the 930 Club on Sunday, you can still catch them at Ramshead Live on Friday.
