This evening we stayed in and made a delicious yet simple, goat cheese, broccoli, prosciutto, and red onion pizza (click here for the recipe, compliments of Williams-Sonoma's website, which Kelly refers to as one of "the best kept secrets ever") and mixed up a batch of hot spiced wine (recipe) for this cold winter's night. While cooking/eating dinner we listened to Tulsa's EP, I Was Submerged, and the latest album from The Ravonettes, Lust, Lust, Lust. In case you did not know already, Tulsa are coming to The Grog Shop this Friday (The Whigs are headlining) and if you got nothing to do you should come down and check out this great Boston band do their own channeling of the spirit of Neil Young thru distortion à la Built to Spill, My Morning Jacket and Band of Horses.

As far as The Ravonettes, they are about to head out on tour of the states in a few weeks but unfortunately they are not coming to c-town -- they did however come last fall to The Beachland Ballroom but we we are unable to go to that show. We have never had a chance to see this Danish duo and witness there melodic mix of 50's pop meets the fuzz of the Jesus and Mary Chain but are confident that we will catch them at some point.
On another note, there is a show announcement you might not have heard of yet. . .and, that announcement is that the one and only Feist is coming April 23rd to The Palace Theatre (at this point no opener has been revealed). We just saw Ms. Feist at Pittsburgh's fabulous Carnegie Music Hall back in September and it was a performance that left us wanting more.
To get a taste of what her on-stage presence is like, watch the clip below, which happens to be taken during the particular performance we had the privilege of viewing:
