Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin coming to ATL!!!
My Missouri indie rock/pop heroes (there is something cool in Springfield!), Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, have let me know that they'll be playing at the Masquerade in Atlanta on January 6. They'll be playing with Harry & the Potters too. This is, simply put, awesome news. Broom was one of my favorite albums of last year, and has since been rereleased on Polyvinyl. Here's "Oregon Girl" from that album for those who haven't heard it:

In addition, here's SSLYBY's video for "Pangea" which prominently features a pair of dinosaurs totally bummed out by continental drift. But (spoiler alert!) they get together in the end. Love conquers all and such.
Unfortunately, I'm going to have to miss this show because I'll be out of town at a professional conference. Although I'm glad they're coming to Atlanta, I'm terribly unhappy that I won't be able to attend. I hope everyone else goes. These boys are something special.
