fix up, look sharp
Dizzee Rascal made his Vancouver tonight, opening his 2005 North American tour. I wasn't blown away, but show was definitely worth checking out. Highlights, predictably were "I Luv U" "Fix Up, Look Sharp" and "Stand Up Tall," the latter two making up the encore. The crowd, a mix of mostly hip hop heads and indie rock kids, ate it all up.
A whole bunch of new shows were announced, most notably LCD Soundsystem and M.I.A. at the Commodore on May 10th.
Also: the Gossip at Richard's on May 24th, Xiu Xiu at Mesa Luna and Rilo Kiley at a venue tba on June 16th, Spoon at a tba venue June 17th, Kid 606 at another mystery venue August 13th.

Dizzee Rascal was incredible. The show was the very definition of blown away.
