Emily Haines is smokin' hot and she's fun to watch perform. Metric's the reason that I bought tickets to APW for Friday instead of Saturday.

i can smell her cameltoe from across the river.

Posted by fried fish | July 16, 2008 4:30 PM

if by "across the river" you mean the latitudinal width of the united states and several weeks of time, then yes, that there's one fragrant cameltoe

This is a great bill. Though $27.50 is a bit pricey. It'll be nice to see extended sets from them. The new Mates of State album is great.
