Fleeting JoysPICK OF THE WEEK: Fleeting Joys @ UCLA Cooperage
Quit holding your breath for the My Bloody Valentine reunion. Fleeting Joys has all the rich, creamy MBV goodness you love with zero grams of trans fat and they’re totally spreadable. I Can’t Believe It’s Not My Bloody Valentine, Friday at the UCLA Coop.

UPDATE: In true MBV fashion, word on the street is this show is cancelled. Sorry, gazers of shoe.
