    Amanda and I went to go see Squirrel Nut Zippers last night. This is the band that we used to listen to when we were dating. We also played some of their music at our wedding. We've spent the past 10 years on and off grooving to one or another SNZ album. If you've never heard them, you owe it to yourself to check them out - they play swing, jazz and other funky stuff from the '30s, '40s and '50s - and it's all their own stuff! Katherine Whalen, the lead singer, has this voice that makes her sound like she was plucked right out of a Billie Holiday cover band.

    ...and yes, they played "Hell."

    The name alone is worth going to see them.

    The Highlite of my day yesterday was being put on hold by our ISP only to hear "Prince Nez" coming through the telephone. Good times.

    sounds like the kinda band name you regret coming up in a drunken haze once you hit it big.
