Let's Pretend We're Stephin Merritt

What are you doing for Valentine's Day this year? Catching a film? Enjoying a romantic candlelit dinner? Jetting off to Paris for a long weekend in the City of Love?

Well, whatever you had planned, cancel it, because you're coming to this instead:

Remember when, a little while back, I convinced a bunch of talented people to cover their favourite tracks from 69 Love Songs by The Magnetic Fields? Well, many of those talented people will be getting together in Cardiff on the 14th of February to perform their covers live and pay musical tribute to Stephin Merritt and his magnificent three-disc masterwork.

Confirmed acts include:
Each artist will be performing 2 tracks from 69 Love Songs, plus a few numbers of their own. If you're a fan of The Magnetic Fields and you're within travelling distance of Cardiff, you should DEFINITELY jot this one down in your diary - it should be a lot of fun!

To get you in the mood, here's A Chicken With Its Head Cut Off as reimagined by Francesca's Word Salad:

69 Love Songs: An Absolutely Cuckoo Valentine's Day will be taking place at Gwdihw Café Bar in Cardiff on Valentine's Day (Sunday the 14th of February). More details can be found here.
