Question from a random MySpace acquaintance: Does anyone know of a bar/venue here in St. Louis showing the Eurovision song finals this Saturday? My pal Dustin the Turkey appears to be absent from the proceedings, but 25 other countries will be represented once the two seminal rounds are completed.
That link above will send you to who's in the running so far; the most recognizable name is Sébastien Tellier, who released a record on Astralwerks in recent years and has toured with Air, Royksopp and Moby.
After the jump, here's video proof that Eurovision winners go on to big things.
ABBA, "Waterloo," 1974
Celine Dion, France 1988, "Ne partez pas sans moi"
