Elipsus

5 04 2008

What most people don’t know about me is that besides being a political junkie, I am a rabid music junkie. I am always looking for new independent artists. It has been a while since I found a good one. The last one I discovered was Adele and she is becoming mainstream now thanks to I-Tunes. Damn I-Tunes.

Last Sunday my friend and I Esme were lamenting that there weren’t anymore political rock bands like the Beatles after watching “Across the Universe.” Low and behold 2 days later I was contacted by an artist named Fox-Elipsus on Facebook. He was planning a tour of Borders in the Houston area and saw that I love U2 and Duran Duran and claimed that his music was similar.

Boy was he right. The young man not only gets music, he gets life. His music is very political like the Beatles and sounds a lot like Duran Duran and U2. He is originally from Oxford, England and now resides in upstate New York. I decided for my 32nd anniversary–code for birthday– that all my friends and I are going to go to his free concert at Borders-Galleria on Sunday and then go to my home for a party to commensurate the day I was born 32 years ago.

I will definitely take lots of pictures but I admonish my readers to heck this young man out. He is amazing and definitely go to one of his concerts if he comes to your town.

Buon Weekend
