do do do do do come on

Working for an alt-weekly has its definite advantages. When Britt and I walked up to will call at the beautiful Majestic Theater last night and were handed seats 5 and 6 on row A and then were escorted to said seats to find that they were in fact front row, dead center... I kinda liked my job.

I've been slightly obsessed with the Magnetic Fields since I discovered them several years ago after hearing a cover of "The Saddest Story Ever Told." It's still my favorite MF song and no one can do it quite like they can. Last night I finally got to experience them live and it was truly a magical experience. I don't know how to describe it besides like watching a quintet made up of classically trained musicians, prolific songwriters, mad geniuses and rock stars.

Britt Clardy made me be ballsy and ask for a picture after the show. Ok so he asked for the picture. Anyway, read my review here. It's the first one my music editor has ever liked.


  1. Such an awesome review! Great stuff.

  2. alright, i gave in.

    although i have yet to post anything of substance (or anything at all, actually..) i did go ahead and rev up my blog again.
