It looks like is going to be a great weekend here in C-town which makes me feel alive with pleasure. Actually the reason for the title is the Viva Voce song of the same name. A few years ago I made Kelly a mix with that song on it and at the time I just figured that this duo was from somewhere in Sweden it just seemed like a good fit, just like how seem people think that Stellastarr* and Midlake should be from England. In reality they are from Oregon via Alabama which is great because it makes it a lot easier for them to tour the states. As luck would have they are coming to Akron on October 18th @ The Lime Spider with The Silversun Pickups.
