Between SXSW, the band's tour kickoff show last month and the interview in this week's print edition, Rocks Off has had plenty to say about the Wild Moccasins lately. So for the band's CD release of debut full-length Skin Collision Past Friday at Walter's, and in light of this week's Press cover story, we thought we'd step aside and see what "The Twitterverse" thought about the show. Sounds like we're not the only ones who love them.
