Incoming: Owen Pallett at Fingerprints Records
"O Canada", we still haven't forgiven you for defeating the US hockey team in the gold medal game at the Olympics. Lucky for you, the amount of cool Canadian indie bands that you export is very impressive (excluding the horrid Nickelback). One such export is the obscenely talented composer and violinist Owen Pallett who has shed his previous moniker as Final Fantasy to avoid legal prosecution.
Don't believe us? Tune in to KCRW 89.9 on Monday, 11:15 a.m. to hear a live in-studio performance by Pallett before he heads down to Long Beach. If you're smart, you'll call Fingerprints Records at (562) 433-4996 to RSVP for your ticket to attend his performance.
