Oh, Hell Yes

I’ve mentioned previously that March will be a good music month. In addition to the new Madness album, I have tickets to a band I thought I’d never get to see live.

Yes, the Squirrel Nut Zippers have reformed and are doing another tour, starting in Minneapolis. Okay, so it’s a little ironic that I’m seeing them here, having just been to their neck of the woods last month, but I’ll take what I can get. How can I not, when they write songs just for me.

Put a Lid on It

Now the girl’s in overdrive. Some of your pals want to stay alive.

Not to mention some truly sweet surreal Eastern European jazz fusion. No, I didn’t know what that sounded like until I heard this song either. Now with awesome retro video.

The Ghost of Steven Foster

If we were made of cellophane, we’d all get stinking drunk much faster.

I got my tickets today. Sooo happy.

    Hey, Serena! If you’ve never heard of them, it’s also definitely worth checking out their single from, oh, more years ago than I want to think about. It’s called “Hell,” which probably makes the title make more sense.And there are still tickets….

    I’m definitely interested. My husband is often occupied on Tuesday nights, but I’ll ask him if he can go. If nothing else, maybe he can come late….I’ll let you know!

    Mr. Serena… You dork. Let’s quit communicating through comments and just email each other!:)

    Rats, another lost post. Me? I can’t go to this show, but I’m hoping you will make a bootleg tape of it, yes?

    Greg, how about a mix tape from the albums? I might be too busy puking from the cuteness of Mr. and Ms. Serena. Not something you want on a bootleg, I think.
