Here I Come To Save The Day!

This morning I'll be summoning my one super power (my frighteningly acute and finely tuned pop aesthetic) to celebrate the fact that The Posies will be playing the 9:30 club along with Brendan Benson Wednesday night,and I'm downright GIDDY!

Seriously,I'm all OMG! OMG! OMG!

If you're a regular listener,you KNOW that this is the aural equivalent of a Monday Morning Breakfast Blend orgasm!

So I plan on shooting my wad (figuratively) for 2 solid hours this morning!
