National Public Radio uses their songs as segue music for All Things Considered, and their current tour finds them acting as Richard Buckner's backing band. Karpinski claimed that although they will be playing two shows a night for most of the tour, they plan on keeping 6P7's sets short and sweet.

"Our live sets are rarely over 30 minutes long, and I don't think people have the attention span to stand in a room with all the distractions and listen to instrumental music for more than that," he noted and laughed. "You know, they start to get bored even if they love it." *
