Blurb from their website: "In her latest songs, it shows more than ever that Katie Stelmanis is both romantic and pragmatic. You can hear it in every track of Olympia, which is as baroque and fantastical as ever in its musical composition, completely unconstrained by genre boundaries – yet disarmingly direct in both its infectious hooks and its lyrics which deal with the minutiae of friendship, love and everyday life with all the seriousness they deserve. Full of questions and advice directed boldly at her real-life friends, it's a reminder to us all that the people around us are as important as any high-falutin principles or fantastical visions. The ordinary is romantic."
Now for the broken record statement:
If you RSVP but don't have tickets yet, please be clear about that so your fellow Musicophiles aren't left holding a ticket with no one to go with! That would suck.
Please answer any questions asked when you RSVP. Seriously.
