we're sending our love down the well

Holy christ the guy from Deep Purple sounds rough. That being said, I've come to the conclusion that despite what everyone has been saying about the Live 8 lineup, maybe Geldof, Cohl, and Co. have it right. Because really, who are a bunch of old, slightly out of touch, rich white guys who run the G8 going to listen to? Certainly not young people, or black people... but other old, slightly out of touch, rich white guys. Genius!

Best. Prom. Ever.

The Supersuckers open for Pearl Jam on September 2nd. Normally this wouldn't disappoint me, but Sleater-Kinney are opening the second leg of the tour.

Franz Ferdinand hit the Orpheum on October 4th. (via Chromewaves)

While I'm stealing content from Frank, I should also direct you to his pictures of Feist's free Canada Day show in Toronto. Yes, while Vancouverites had the chance to rock out to Bif Naked and Shocore, the centre of the universe got all classy and celebrated the nation's birthday in style.

While you missed out on Leslie, you can take advantage of another exciting free show on the July 23rd, when Harry and the Potters play a free 1pm show outside the Vancouver Public Library. For those of you out of the loop, Harry and the Potters are two dudes dressed up as different age Harry's rocking out to songs about the book. I'll be honest, I have never, and don't plan to read and Harry Potter anytime soon... but I bet somebody out there is excited. (thanks Aleks)

Were you like me on Wednesday night when you realized that you totally forgot about the Wu Tang's Inspectah Deck playing at Sonar? Well take solace in the fact that he got stuck at the border and their was no show. Ouch.

now playing: Ryan Adams - 16 Days (live in Charleston)

The show still went on and Afu-Ra and Planet Asia were great, but no deck :-/

you mean talib, lyrics stick to your ribs?
we built another world

good weekend
you look a bit like coffee and you taste a little ...
i wanna bite that hand so badly
