On Saturday, Feb. 27, Felix Obelix will play its CD release show at the Nightlight in Chapel Hill, NC. The full-length album, "The Tick of the Clock, the Beat in the Chest", will be released on the Pox World Empire label. Opening will be The Strugglers, in an unusual version of just Randy Bickford backed up by a string section, playing the Chris Eubank string arrangements from his new record. $8 gets you in the show AND a copy of the CD AND a letter to your future self: Yes, there will be an interactive project called "Letters to Your Future Self". All attendees of the night will get, with admission, some stationery and a self-addressed stamped envelope. Attendees are invited to write a letter to him or herself, put it in the envelope and seal it up. I will hold onto the letters for 8 months and mail them in October 2010. So if you come to this show, in addition to the Felix Obelix record, you'll get a letter from your past self, eight months from now.

She uses many odd beat patterns, like groupings of five and seven, to provide unsettling undertones to otherwise generic melodies.”
