Let’s Get Out Of This Country

First song that came through on my MP3 player when I arrived in Taipei was Camera Obscura’s “Let’s Get Out Of This Country

I am pleasantly surprised that they are going to be playing in Singapore on October 29.  Sadly I do not have tickets to their show.

Anyway, per the song title… I have jetted out of Singapore and find myself in Taipei.  About to go eat dinner at 1010 Restaurant.  It’s dubbed as “Pop Hunan Cuisine.”  I don’t know what that means.

Go listen to the song.  It’s great.  If you like it, check out their song Alaska as well.
