Elekibass Joined By Casper & The Cookies On Tour

Yeah, Athens-based band Casper & The Cookies have been busy working on a new album this summer, but they've decided to accompany their pals, Elekibass (a wonderfully crazy -- see above -- pop band from Japan whose music I'm happy to be introduced to now), on a whirlwind tour of the southeast (for 12 or so dates) after next week's Athens Popfest (wish I was going!). Whew, that was quite a long and over-punctuated sentence. And then they're going on tour in the fall too... busy busy busy. If you haven't given this band a listen for whatever reason, I really suggest "Yer Birthday." Even if it's not... you know... yer birthday.
