"Sub Pop’s indie rock band, the Handsome Furs – made up of the duo husband and wife team of Dan Boeckner and Alexei Perry Cox - documented their travels during their first tour across Asia with two Flip cams for a new series entitled “Indie Asia: On Tour with Handsome Furs.” These self-described travel nerds share the fun, excitement and drama of visiting new places, meeting new people and tasting new foods in China, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Thailand with the CNN.com audience.Not only are Handsome Furs one of my favorite bands ever to see live, but they are into crazy cultural adventures. They did an entire tour in Russia and Eastern Europe that inspired Face Control, their latest album. Aaaand they spit on each other's faces in concert - always a good thing.
Available at www.cnn.com/IndieAsia, a new episode of Indie Asia is slated to appear regularly in the travel section of CNN.com beginning on Thursday, January 21."
Oh yeah, and their music rocks damn hard.
