Later than I originally planned while I was in Stockholm last month, I'm sharing some new Full of Keys and Anni Bernhard news today, my first of the new year.
While it's not exactly the first thing I thought I'd be writing about Anni this year while on that long SAS flight home from Stockholm, after over eight days there, it's still well worth you knowing about, especially if you are free this Friday night in Sweden, and most especially if you'll already be in Gotland.
The exact details of the BIG NEWS I have surrounding Anni and her band will have to wait for another day, since I've been sworn to secrecy, but trust me, when it comes out, it will be VERY exciting news for her fans and music-lovers everywhere.
In the meantime, though, until the time is right to spill the beans, I'm happy to tell you that Full Of Keys will be performing Friday night in Visby, Gotland, the hometown of singer Anni's clever and oh-so creative manager, Andreas Jismark.
The performance will be part of an exclusive visit to Visby for rehearsals for what may/could be an upcoming U.S. tour that... well again, I can't talk about right now.
FoK will be in Gotland during much of the Spring recording its second album and shooting some videos, so if you happen to be minding your own business one day, and happen to come across a very beautiful brunette somewhere singing with verve and style, please make sure that you look around carefully for any film cameras and lighting technicians BEFORE rushing over to say hello to Anni! :)
Friday is my birthday, but since I can't be there for obvious reasons to enjoy the music, be sure to make enough noise to compensate for my absence.
And don't forget to toast me with a cold Samuel Adams!
