The big question is what came first, poppy electronic-meets-rock hits or Dragonette?

The frigid cold has permeated the air of this empty, dim, run-down bar. It smells of stale smoke and beer, and has a lifeless quality about it; the arcade machines abandoned, the single employee unloading cases of water.
