you have suffered enough, and warred with yourself, it's time that you won


... the swell season are going to tour in april! i am so excited... seeing them in november was one of the best musical experiences of my life - probably ranking up there with the first time i saw pearl jam. their songs are so beautiful that they can make you cry, not out of sadness, but out of joy.

and glen's main band, the frames, are AMAZING. i first heard them in 2004,and have been a casual fan (i.e. listening to the songs on the radio, owning a few of their albums) for a few years, but about a year ago, i become obsessed. i mean, crazy. not since i was 12 and found pearl jam, have i been so nuts over a band. i bought all their albums, and spent an embarassing amount of my free time finding interviews, unreleased music and videos online. i wish i had found out about their music years ago - i highly recommend them. since november, the frames and the swell season have barely left my cd player. i am hoping that when the line up for sasquatch is announced next week, either the frames or swell season (mm.. maybe both?) are on it.
