Musical Monday - Public Service Broadcasting

I saw Public Service Broadcasting last week and just loved it. Such a cool presentation, and no speaking by either band member during the show, though lots of interaction via electronic communications. A bit cheeky.

Nice to See You Again, Los Angeles

Two weeks ago I headed back to LA to escape Utah's (mild) winter and because I'd purchased tickets to one of Caribou's 3 sold out shows at the Fonda. I just had to see them.
