Well, it's finally here. Almost a year after offering up a sneak peek of the music being made by Tauntaun, the defacto supergroup profiled in this week's issue, led by former Gamits frontman Chris Fogal and featuring Ian O'Dougherty, Matty Clark and Dave Barker, the outfit is unveiling its debut platter tonight at the Bluebird in the company of Stereotyperider and Wetlands. And we have tickets! To be in the running when we pick the winners at random this afternoon, send us a note with the words "Tauntaun tix" in the subject line before 3 p.m. Horns. See you at the show!
