I was reading the Cassino thread from earlier today and someone mentioned that Northstar's Pollyanna is 10 years old now. It was released on April 20, 2004, so we're like 10 days late on this post, but what a great record. I would fly just about anywhere in the U.S. (including Huntsville, Alabama) to see that album played front-to-back. Feel free to reminisce on the album in the replies if you were a fan if you don't know what I'm talking about, fix that (Spotify, Rdio).

An AP.net reader/detective talked to Cassino's touring guitarist about Cassino's appearance at the Triple Crown Anniversary show and the inclusion of Northstar songs.
Fan ReportTonight at the Cassino show, their touring guitarist revealed that Nick and Tyler from Cassino will be playing an acoustic set on Monday at the Triple Crown Anniversary Show at the Blender Theater including Northstar songs. There is a possibility of a full band song or two as well, he said.

At tonight's Cassino show in Columbus, Ohio, the crowd was treated to a nice surprise when the band "covered" Northstar's "Two Zero Two" on a fan's (my) request.
