FUTURE BIBLE HEROES ADD HUDSON, NY SHOW
A special message to New York area fans from Stephin Merritt:
My band Future Bible Heroes is playing a surprise show on Monday at Helsinki Hudson on July 1. (I'm not actually playing--that would be gauche--but I wrote at least half the music and all the words, and they have a much better singer than I.)
I hope to see you there, and if not, please send an excuse suitable for framing. (The lucky best entry will be carved into my headstone.)
