Today is the St. P’s annual day of service. I’m signed up to join C’s class at a local food bank and we were scheduled to leave very early, so this was actually posted Thursday night.

Last month was the 10th anniversary of my favorite album of this century, Frightened Rabbit’s The Midnight Organ Fight. I have not posted anything about that because I’m saving my recollections for the anniversary of when I first heard the band. Believe me, I will have some thoughts to share.

This winter the band went on a mini tour to celebrate the album’s 10 years of wrecking people’s hearts. They played very small clubs – clubs the size they were playing 10 years ago – and the dates sold out brutally quickly. Too quickly for me to even consider seeing them in Chicago, let alone try to get tickets. Luckily they stopped off at the AV Club’s office to do an AV Club Session.

Here is the first Frightened Rabbit song I ever heard. In a few more weeks I’ll share how that song, and the album, affected me nearly instantly. Unfortunately, I can’t figure out how to get the AV Club’s videos to embed in WordPress, so please follow the link below to watch.
