Now, they’re headed back out on the road, this time supporting Fountains Of Wayne for most of the shows on their November trek.

Ira Glass, producer and host of public radio show “This American Life,” said of OK Go: “I wish I could describe what was so special about [the band]. Suffice it to say that the band simply overwhelmed the audience with this exuberant buzz of fun and happiness and youth and rock ‘n’ roll.”

Glass should know. He and his “American Life” crew spent some time on the road with OK Go a few years back. The band would perform between stories told by American Lifers. According to Glass, “It was like traveling with living catnip.”

OK Go have been around since 1998, as Chicago residents will know. The band built a strong fanbase in the area thanks to their fun live shows and a set of CD demos. In 2001, they signed to Capitol Records.
