SM Event, Interview

I just returned from seeing The Magnetic Fields three times on their Fall tour, and I will just say that they were spectacular as usual.  The show in Pontiac was absolutely the best show I've ever seen the band do.  To those of you whom I met, it was a pleasure one and all.  You can see the set list the band played for most of the nights here.  See select photos from the tour here and below you can watch The Magnetic Fields performing "Que Sera Sera" with Emma Straub.

Stephin Merritt discusses his particular distaste for necrophilia here.

Most excitingly, though, The Magnetic Fields will be performing at Life Along the Borderline: A Tribute to Nico.  The event was curated by John Cale of The Velvet Underground and takes place January 16 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.  Everyone should buy tickets for this amazing-sounding event here.


  1. Hah, is it even possible to imagine Stephin singing "Afraid" without crying?
    Obligatory wish I could go

  2. Their voices are similar enough that it's possible for it to be any song of hers. Regardless of the outcome, it's bound to be a pretty amazing show.
