our hearts will spill

sometimes i wonder if it's a bad thing that i depend so heavily on music to better my mood.
then i realize there are far worse things to be addicted to.

sometimes i get $4 mixed drinks

next sunday @ zen sushi: get back loretta! food, drinks, amazing music & friends... the only way this show could get any better is if they paid me to attend. i'll look into that.

i thought this wouldn't hurt a lot, guess not

so my latest obsession is electro-indie...specifically, mgmt's oracular spectacular. their stuff is kinda weird (to me-- but this is coming from someone who thought paris hilton's stars are blind was a fun song-- i know, i just lost all my scene cred like 5 minutes ago) yet super freaking catchy. "technicolor" seems to be the buzzword to describe them, and i agree wholeheartedly. i am totally, seriously hxc freaking out over kids. like, i could listen to it over and over and over and over and i would still love it. other faves: time to pretend, the youth, the handshake.

it's out digitally (on itunes) for just $7.99... the physical cd will be out early 2008. buy itttt, your ears will thank me. and love me. and worship me. and do my homework for me... take my finals for me.. please?

look out for them on tour with of montreal NOW. their la shows are nov 8 & 9th, both nights at the avalon. i'll be at the nov 9th show (i almost had a schedule conflict, fortunately i've worked it out - nov 8th is robbers on high street (bbfries!!!) and great northern at the echoplex).

happy friday, yall.

"i've met you before... multiple times, actually"

i love this band. putting up with a d.b. crowd @ the guitar center opening was worth it-- every dumb dance, every ear-to-ear grin, every sing-along, everything that added up to my general geeky (fangirl) happiness. hearing the full band play justified live.

really really
really happy.
