Well shoot. I should have picked that up at the Black cat last night! Fantastic show ladies (and gents). I like the way the guys are playful in the back, it makes you all very real. And of course you two ladies have an uncanny ability to be beautiful on stage.

Anyway, yea sorry I posted this on your page and not your sisters or your myspace or even weirder…befriending you on facebook…

To a prosperous musical career!
