Santa Fe, New Mexico (PRWEB) October 19, 2012
Yes, it would probably make more sense for Todd and the Fox to release its eponymous debut album in its hometown of Santa Fe, NM. Or even Albuquerque. Somewhere in New Mexico, perhaps? The Southwest? The U.S.? Nope. As fortune has it, the electronic-rock duo Todd and the Fox will first make its album debut while in South Korea, as performers at the 2012 Intangible Cultural Cooperation Network (ICCN) World Intangible Culture Festival in Gangneung, South Korea, Oct. 19-28. Todd and the Fox is the house band for Santa Fe, New Mexico’s top on-line visitor guide and magazine SantaFe.com.
