goodness gracious: Silversun Pickups/Viva Voce tour & Fliter TourZine now here is something to look forward to.
tour Silversun Pickups and Viva Voce (team SSPU/VV!) kicks off tonight in San Diego, and along its well-plotted (sort of a pun there, plodded) destinations there are a whole TWO Boston dates. why is this so freaking awesome?
besides the fact i get to see them twice, the deal is that the second date just so happens to be at BU Central, to which i have full free access. since i'm pretty much the only Boston blogger with this ability i was asked by the brand spankin' new Filter TourZine to write up the live review.
sooooo, kids, why don't we give a double hoo-ray for the doubly sweet motif we have going - double awesome bands, double Boston shows, doubly clutch opportunities for live show reviewing and lots of Shan to go around. oh, you love it.
