I saw these dudes with REM and they were great. Go see them if you get the chance. They put on a great live show and their latest album is great.

That video was quite cool. I also enjoy their name.

Sounds like a great package!

Hmmmm, don't see any Calgary dates on there.

Allison - I LOVE that video toovery clever!

Barbara - Don't give up hope. I think they'll probably be beefing up the schedule. The new record is really solid. I think we'll be hearing a lot from Blitzen Trapper!

Perhaps they'll do the folk festival circuit this year!
