As to what conclusions can be drawn from the success Silversun Pickups have attained despite — or as a result of — being on the independent Dangerbird Records, Guanlao sees it as a sign that the times are changing. "Ten to 15 years ago, bands thought a major label was the only way to move records, but it's not like that anymore. I think big labels can really hinder a band our size, because the focus on money production is too much. What's nice about indie labels, although there isn't as much money floating around, the band-label connection is much greater."

The Pickups are past the Buzz stage.

Guanlao, who'll never tire of playing "Lazy Eye" because of the amazing buildup, is looking forward to the second stop on the group's summer tour here in Boca Raton. When warned about the tropical heat and mosquitoes that abound in June, he stated, "Well, since you mentioned it, I am now considering bringing a mosquito net." Then a light bulb went off, and he had another idea, "and perhaps we can start selling Silversun Pickups' Off! at the merch table."
