une annee sans lumiere

My French prof would've been horrified with the lack of accents in the title, but such is life with Blogger.

the Arcade Fire make thier triumphant return to Vancouver at a venue TBA on October 7th. Taking a look at the other venues they're playing on this tour, I'd venture a guess that the Orpheum would be a safe bet if it isn't already booked that day. I'll make sure I get the ticket info up here asap after it's announced, as you'll want to jump on this one quickly. You may recall that they sold out both the Commodore and Mesa Luna with almost zero advertising last December, and that was before the videos charting on Much, and whatnot. Unfortunately, this is the same day as the Coup show... argh.

Nada Surf play the Media Club on October 18th. (from More Cowbell)

Couldn't find the new Sufjan Stevens anywhere? Don't want to shell out the $22+taxes at Virgin for it? Can't wait til Asthmatic Kitty gets the reissue (sans Superman) out? Well, you can sleep a little easier. PrefixBlog reports that Illinois will be for sale at the merch booth on Sufjan's current tour (that hits Vancouver this Sunday). $10us... so probably $15cdn... sweet deal.

the Hold Steady are on Conan tonight. Hopefully, I'll actually remember to watch, unlike last night when I went to bed before Nellie McKay's performance on Kilbourn.

now playing: Spiritualized - Oh Baby

Actually, it's Craig Ferguson now, not Craig Kilborn. I caught the Nellie Mckay performance. As I recall she played "Ding Dong". I wish she played a new song instead. She did look pretty cute though.

Ce n'est pas difficile dactylographiez les lettres avec accents.

c'est seulement que tu es paresseux!!!

par example: une année sans lumière.

...I am so bored at work.
also, the deleted post above is mine; I spotted about three typos and fixed them in this message.

gerald. you're so nerdy. hah.
thats obviously a good thing though.

quinny. you should go to the sufjan stevens show, and get me a copy of the cd. although i have it already due to illegal means. hmmm.. dilemma. to bad i can't just go to the show. oh well... c'est la vie, n'est-ce pas?
