needy girl

Chromeo plays Celebrities on August 18th. This will be all kinds of fun. In fact, if you don't go, you'll have to listen to all your friends tell you about it. You don't want that do you? I don't even like Chromeo that much, but if the combination of disco-punk and gay bar aren't a winning one, I dunno what is.

Apparently Chromeo (or their new single anyhow) is also featured in a McDonald's commercial. I'm.. umm.. lovin' it?

Son Volt rolls into town on September 5th. The other half of Uncle Tupelo brings his band to Richard's.

Wolf Parade is the opening act on the Arcade Fire's Fall tour. There's still no venue set for the Vancouver date, but they could play in Hell and it'll still be worth going for those two bands.

Things I'm probably going to waste gasoline on:
Idlewild play Neumo's in Seattle on September 30th. (anybody want a FourTet ticket?)
Calexico and Iron and Wine play the Moore Theatre on October 22nd in support of their forthcoming EP. I heard a rumour awhile back that the Shins might support on the West Coast as well, which would be epic. They've got four days off between Seattle and Denver, so cross your fingers for a Vancouver date.

the NME reports that Spiritualized's Jason Pierce is recovering from an (as yet unspecified) illness that almost claimed his life. I hope you join me in wishing him a full and speedy recovery.

edit: Most Serene Republic play the Media Club August 10th.

now playing: the Hold Steady - Hornets! Hornets!

on a completely unrelated note, have you heard sufjan "michigan"?? cause i've just decided that its way better than "illinois"

hmm... i dunno if i can support that claim, based solely on Illinois' inclusion of Casimir Pulaski Day... which is all kinds of awesomeness in song.

the scene, some bar in MTL last summer. me speaking with a montreal hipster...and he tells me about seeing the Arcade Fire and olf Parade the previous december at a loft party ... for two bucks. I flip out.

Tickets would, probably, be a bit more expensive now.
