Oh hey. I totally didn't blog for two weeks*, and now it's raining and I'm craving a burrito and I'm gonna write a blog entry about Miike Snow. And then I'm going to write a blog entry about SXSW (where I was one of the two weeks I was MIA). In the past two weeks I have seen Swedish band Miike Snow not once, but twice. The first time was in the middle of the afternoon on the last sunny day of SXSW for the annual Spin party at Stubbs. The band went on right after Fucked Up basically wreaked awesome havoc all over the place, and I felt kind of bad for Miike Snow for two reasons. 1. that's just a rough act to follow and 2. something told me that they would be way better with an awesome light show. Lo and behold they played a great set, but when I walked into Music Hall of Williamsburg Friday night, it was a whole different story - crazy lights, fog machine (turned up to 11), one epic dance party.
Miike Snow are awesome, and if you don't know about them yet, listen to Silvia and just be happy with life.

*BTW I wrote this entry over a week ago and somehow forgot to post it. OOPS. But in fact is IS raining today, and I am still craving a burrito. Some things never change.
