It’s no secret around here that I’m obsessed with The Besnard Lakes.  As soon as I saw this list of dates I yelled “ROADTRIP” and had a really awesome daydream about driving down the west coast and seeing the best live band in the world for as many consecutive nights as my inbox would allow.  Truth is, I’ll probably be lucky to make it to three of these. So many exciting lineups in this, too.  Band of Horses!  Brad!  Suuns!  LAND OF TALK!!!!  Merry Christmas.
