An Open Plea to Art Brut:
Enjoy your awesome summer of European festival shows. But I am begging you - PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE come back to Minneapolis. I apologize for not getting into you guys until now and that I missed your show last year at the Entry. I beg of you, don't punish me because of that. I'm hardcore now and must have you back in my town so I can dance like I am having a music-appreciation seizure. I don't mean to put my personal safety into your hands, but if I don't see you guys, I might just die.
It's been known to happen.
