playing a show in victoria in a couple weeks! with one of my favourite bands in the province. always good to get over to the island...

also, one of the first record stores (Other Music in NYC) that really blew my mind as a teenager is now stocking the LP (as many across the continent are, via Light in the Attic, our distro in N America)... i try not to nerd out about this stuff too much but i thought the little description they wrote was really flattering! here it is
