I am stressed to the bone, trying to organize a cross-country move while balancing two jobs and a million projects. It's freezing outside, AND I'm running late with turning in the music section for the next issue (hehe, sorry, Lisa) and yet I folded all of this up and shoved it to the back of my brain wagon the other night to see Austra perform an early show at Mercury Lounge.
