Prozac Girl - The Slingshot Effect Release Party - Erika Dedication

"Prozac Girl" by Sunspot from the release party for "The Slingshot Effect" - November 18th, 2011. A little bit of Semisonic's "Closing Time" snuck in the middle because the idea was to travel back in time to 1998 when "Prozac Girl" was first performed.

Also, it's a special dedication to one of our favorite people, Erika!
