Dickens Done Right 

Wednesday, Dec 15 2010
You’ve seen it parodied, you’ve seen it in CGI, and you’ve seen it with Bill Murray.

The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
