Minnesota Music - Owl City (tour announcement)

If you haven't heard Minnesota-native Adam Young's - aka Owl City's - electro-pop hit "Fireflies," then clearly you've been living under a rock this year. It really reminds of me of Postal Service, the Death Cab off-shoot, and it seems to have reached the same amount of success that "Such Great Heights" did years ago: the single has gone double platinum and the album, Ocean Eyes, has gone gold. "Fireflies" is really a lovely song, so I think it's well deserved, and I don't even typically like electro-pop. Anyway, he's going on tour in the spring. Here are the dates:

in the interest of polite discourse.....how can you like this song! :) (seriously, i work at a record label, so everyone is a hardcore music fan, and we've had arguments about this one, both for and against)
