That's how the New City article on the Magnetic Fields begins, and I'm sure it'll seem like it after all the press I expect they'll garner before/during/after this weekend's 5 sold-out shows at Old Town School of Folk Music. Mark Guarino's piece is already up on the Daily Herald site as well.

I'll be missing out, as I will be a Cub fan amongst Sox fans in the upper deck of U.S. Cellular Field...doing my best to avoid any eye contact and confrontations.
