News:: Rich Aucoin Tours, Has Nifty Tour Blog

This is just a quick post to encourage you to check out Herohill favorite Rich Aucoin's tour blog over at Exclaim. I know plenty of folks do the tour blogs, but I think Rich's is quite well done. It's a quick, fun read with plenty of tour photos and as a bonus Rich ends each entry with a Hal Johnson/Body Break style fitness tip, and so you're not only getting indie rock info but also getting healthy advice at the same time. Win-win? I think so.

Instead of biking across the country for his tour this time, Rich is pledging to run a half-marathon in each city he visits to help support the Heart & Stroke Foundation, so get out to one of his remaining shows and show some support for him and his worthy cause.

I really like the song you posted. I especially enjoy the trumpet. You don't normally hear that and it was a nice relief from the everyday norm. I can't wait to catch him when he plays in Vancouver.

Rich's performance at the Peanut Gallery was phenomenal. As if the sync-up with the Grinch wasn't enough... his version of "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" blew my mind
