Fishboy. Tour. Awesome.

I never talk about Fishboy.

Ok, I just lied just then. I talk about Fishboy all the time. Only because they're fantastic, though! If you haven't experienced Albatross: How We Failed to Save the Lone Star State With the Power of Rock and Roll, you very much need to. Stream the entire rock opera here. Buy it here.

Then, come see the band play the Caledonia Lounge in the A-T-H on May 10th!

Rich from Cable & Tweed is giving away a copy of their record. Go here to enter!

*sigh* no one likes to come to the hanging chad of the United States.

and as much as I hate to say it, Athens is an awful long way to travel from Fort Lauderdale, unless it's for a four-day festival. *sigh*
