Year Number Nine for the Heinekin Transatlantic Festival..

I think I've been attending these concerts for the past six years, and they tend to bring in all the random artists I fall in love with thanks to itunes genius recommendations (how do they know what i like?!?) This year's line up...ahh. may. zing. Most especially, CEU. I've been stalking her since her first album came out, back in 2007? 2006? Not sure, but I love her, and this will be my first chance to see her curly curls live and in person. So so excited!! (see some videos below)
