The Lucksmiths, their shows in NYC TONIGHT, and reality TV!

Looks like this lil tour of the Lucksmiths has brought out all kinds of folks exclaiming their praises… which means now there's more folks signing our petition to have them tour the states perpetually for the next five years (or at least take up residency in the Pacific Northwest for a year or so).
