Tagged! and Yeasayer

I was tagged by The Goods Design, a (mostly) furniture and household items blog, written by a childhood friend of mine, so I gotta spread the love!  And even though I have no eye for design, I enjoy looking at the cool stuff I see on The Goods Design.  Thanks for plugging alwaysmoretohear! 

This is the first time I've done something like this, since the blog is new and all, but the idea is to list 6 quirky but boring details about yourself.

1. I've lived in 7 cities (Los Angeles, Ann Arbor, Sydney, Edinburgh, Washington, D.C., Austin & Oakland) and 3 countries (the U.S., the United Kingdom & Australia).

2. I don't like wearing jewelry, except for chunky earrings.

3. I just started enjoying beer and coffee.  (Thanks a lot Shiner and Peets...)

4. I have played/taken lessons on 7 instruments in my life, but only a few of them I play well (piano, guitar, trumpet, bass, the Chinese ruan, viola and random percussion instruments- but I'll count that as one).

5. I discovered the Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel in junior high through the arrangements of the King's Singers, a 6-part a capella men's vocal group.

6. I buy concert tickets like other women buy shoes. I just can't help myself.  Tonight I went to see Yeasayer at Bimbo's (man, I love this place!) and they were fantastic.  I bought these tickets on a whim about a month or so ago, I hardly knew anything about them. 

Any band who successfully whips out the polyphonic three-part-harmony is A-OK in my book. I could have done without the crazy electronic sounds/noises, but that's cool, the boys like their toys, I get it. 

It seems that the smelly (oh yeah, smelly!) mustache wearin' hipsters know what's up this time.

I'll add a couple tunes to my playlist. And here's their myspace page.

Here's Yeasayer performing "2080" on the BBC show, Later... with Jools Holland .

Now I have to tag.

Sorry if this is annoying  : )

Here are the rules:
-Mention the rules on your blog.
-Tell 6 quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about yourself.
-Tag 6 other blogs
-Go to each blog and leave a comment that says they were tagged.
