it's a hit

Pitchfork reports that Feist and Okkervil River are opening for Rilo Kiley on the 16th... but don't go running for tickets just yet. I emailed the promoters about a month ago about Feist, and was told she is NOT playing. In addition, the Rilo Kiley website only has Okkervil River listed as an opener til the 10th... although according to them Feist is playing (according to Feist's website she isn't). The Brunettes, who are apparently scheduled to play first on the entire leg, are also apparently absent from the Vancouver bill according to their website. Confused yet? I think I'll just go to Xiu Xiu instead.

If you want to relive Sasquatch, DimeaDozen has three torrents up from the festival (Bloc Party, Arcade Fire, Modest Mouse). Don't forget to leave those BitTorrent windows open after you're done downloading.

Phil Elvrum, being the stand up guy that he is, has uploaded Seven New Songs of Mt. Eerie, Mt. Eerie's now sold out 2004 Australian Tour-only EP, to the Audio Archive for your downloading pleasure. (via Large Hearted Boy)

Speaking of Mt. Eerie, if the Vancouver Folk Fest lineup isn't wierd enough for you, you might want to take the ferry over to Anacortes, Wa for What the Heck Fest (July 14, 15, 16, 17). Run to coincide with the 8-block sprawl of the Shipwreck Day Fleamarket, this year's festival runs you a mere $50US for 4 days of music and dinner on Saturday night.
