I read somewhere it will be, but no official announcement yet, so take it as you will.

Just got this info:

Televisually speaking, the "Conan" appearance mentioned in the last mailing is indeed tonight (Wednesday). I don't know what network it's on. You probably do.




That is TONIGHT! You can thank me later.


I was watching "Spaced" yesterday and heard one of their songs in the background while they were at a pub. For ten seconds I was thinking "I really like this song" then it dawned on me that it was B&S.

Well, that Conan appearance was much better than their one in 2002, but I don't know why they felt compelled to perform "Funny Little Frog". There are better songs on the new album, and it wasn't even released as a single here.

Steve Jackson so obviously wants to be a rock star. It's adorable.

I've seen a review that didn't care for that song but I like it.

Funny Little Frog is a brilliant track. They should release it as a single over there.

I also thought they did well on Conan last night. I felt bad for Beans, because he didn't seem to have much to do. I think that Funny Little Frog is probably the most "US-compatible" song on the album, which is probably why the selected that song.

Just over a week to go until I see them live in Milwaukee!

Maybe you're not quite the B&S fan that you thought you were??

The Milwaukee concert on Saturday night was fantastic. The place was absolutely packed, and I was shocked at how many fellow concert-goers actually knew the words to the new album. I thought I'd be in the minority. They also shocked me by playing quite a few off of Tigermilk and If You're Feeling Sinister.

They did this at the NYC shows too.

Hearing "Expectations" and "Your Cover's Blown" in the same show was amazing.

Does anyone know where I can get the setlists for both of the L.A. shows? No way I can remember everything the band played.

Also, I was very disapointed that Neko Case did not play with The New Pornographers. I expected Bejar to skip the tour, but I thought she would come along. Did she play at any of the other shows?

Neko's got a new (great) solo record she's out promoting.
