Uptown Band To Rock Mongolia

How cool is this?  Uptown indie band Canasta will be touring Mongolia next month, as part of the U.S. State Department's Arts Envoy Program. You may remember seeing them at Ribfest in 2010... now they're off to Ulaanbaatar, Sainshand and Dalanzadgad.

And how cool will it be? The band members were told to expect temperatures of minus 20.

You can read about the tour here, and more about Canasta here.  BTW, if you want to see Canasta without producing a passport, they'll be playing Metro on March 22nd.
