I was introduced to Pink Martini many years ago at a small Sundance Film Festival condo party hosted by Mickey Cottrell. They played a couple of great sets in the living room and I've been a fan ever since. The group's anticipated third album -- entitled Hey Eugene! -- is due out in May, but here's a preview (in a clip from their recent cool PBS special). The title track, as lead singer China Forbes notes, is the story of meeting a guy at a party in the East Village... As she explains, they connected, but the guy never called her. What a jerk!

Anyway, its a great song. Can't wait for the new CD!

Set your DVRs, you can catch a replay of the PBS special -- Pink Martini Live: Discover the World -- this Sunday, March 4th at 3:30 a.m. on WNET in NYC (and no doubt on other outlets).

    Hello Eugene! I'm doing some crazy random blog surfing this afternoon and ended up here. I have loved Pink Martini for a few years and Eugene is one of my favorite songs! I'm so looking forward to this new album. I wish I could get the good seats for when they play the Hollywood bowl in Sept. but that's not likely. I've seen them several times up in Portland and they have one of the best concerts around.
