The best news, is the seminal night of the “New Pornographers,”:http://www.thenewpornographers.com/ “Stars,”:http://www.arts-crafts.ca/stars/ and “The Sadies”:http://www.thesadies.net/ on Saturday, June 25 at 7:30 PM. The cost my friends is $3 at the door! All 3 bands are fantastic and worth a good listening so I will of course be playing selections of each on the next TUTT (which will be up for Monday, I promise).

This of course means that we got to schedule a get-together. So the question is, who’s in?!
