E doesn’t know it yet but come hell or high water we’re going to see Glen Hansard (of The Frames) and Marketa Irglova in Ireland this year. Or somewhere in Europe. She missed the Swell Season show last November at the Danforth Music Hall in Toronto (and has been regretting it ever since), and I know that she wants to see them in the flesh.

They’re really an amazing team, and their performances are friendly and impeccable. Should you have no idea who I’m talking about, go rent Once then cry your eyes out in the comfort of your own home. If you can’t relate to any of the songs, you really haven’t lived yet or otherwise you’ve been lucky to have had flawless (and ergo flawed?) relationships. Everyone needs their heart torn out every once in awhile, but there’s something so redeeming about the way these two perform the songs. They’re brilliant.

I got an email from them today saying that the shows will be few and far between. There’s one in London in November but we’d really have to decide on that TONIGHT if we wanna go – thoughts?
