The Merge Records website has confirmed all of the opening acts for the US portion of The Magnetic Fields' 2012 tour. The duty will be split between the aforementioned Holcombe Waller, Bachelorette, Kelly Hogan (well known for having covered "Papa Was a Rodeo"), and an all-acoustic DeVotchKa. This is all, of course, very exciting! Openers for the European portion of the tour have yet to be announced.
For those of you who missed Mr. Stephin Merritt's appearance at Cinefamily last month, a series of clips from the event have been uploaded, the first of which can be found here. Eternal gratitude to Mr. Ian Crane for pointing me in the direction of these clips.
