The Shins are going to be incredibly busy this month. And, because we think that the various things they’re doing are pretty amazing, and also because we are having a hard time keeping track of it all ourselves (…), the following summation of January ’07, aka the month The Shins are totally all up in your grill:

January 9: This is the day that you can pre-order Wincing the Night Away on iTunes.
January 13: The Shins are the musical guests on Saturday Night Live! SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE! It’s my dick, in a box!
January 18: Starting on this day, and running through Jan. 21st, you can stream Wincing the Night Away, in its entirety, on Myspace!
January 19-21: You should really just get some rest.
January 22: The Shins will be performing live at midnight at the Virgin Records in New York’s Union Square. Buy a copy of the record at Virgin and you get in to see them play!
January 23: Not only does Wincing the Night Away come out on this day, but also the band will be playing on CBS’s Late Show with David Letterman! DAVID LETTERMAN!
January 26: In the morning, The Shins will be playing on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic. And, in the evening, at 8:00pm, they’ll be playing a free in-store at the Amoeba Records in Hollywood.

Consider yourself warned!
