FAROE FRIDAY: COMING TO AMERICA

Several weeks ago we told you about "Boys In A band." Five lads from the Faroe islands who recently won the Global Battle of the Bands in London.

Now it seems they're coming to America. They're playing the fabeled South by Southwest festival in Austin next month. It's hard to be positive about this, but it's quite likely that this is the first time a band from the Faroes has played SXSW. Way to go, boys.

Boys in a Band aren't signed to any record label, and haven't even recorded an album yet, but SXSW is dense with music industry types. So perhaps they will be seeing a bigger audience in the year to come.

Rememer, you heard about them first here.

This week's faroe photo comes from this guy's Flickr photostream. It's of the jagged Mykines coastline. The island is beautiful, but difficult to get to. Strong storms can leave the island cut off from the rest of the world for week(s) at a time.

That's all for now. Baby photos to come sometim over the weekend.
