(ok, you won the Gold Medal.  stop rubbing it in)

A quick gander and the snowfall-laden countdown to the May 4 release of ‘Together’ reveals you’ve got limited time to GET YOUR ACT TOGETHER (sorry) to place a pre-order for the 5th and arguably finest studio album from The New Pornographers.  And not to apply undue pressure on a Spring Tuesday morning, but you’ll have even less time to get it in gear unless you wanna be on the outside looking in when The New Pornographers roll into your town (sadly, on a bus besides this one) in a few weeks time.  Tickets for the North America tour starting June 7 are now available w/ reduced service charge for a limited period. General sale commences March 26. (dates below).
