when i come back around

This is probably the lowest profile item in this post, but its the most exciting to me. According to Pollstar, Jamie Lidell is opening for Four Tet on Septemeber 30th.

System of a Down plays the Coliseum on September 17th with the Mars Volta in tow. Presale is on now. Password = MEZMERIZE. The regular onsale starts Saturday at 10am. If you go to this do me a favour and get the message to the Mars Volta that bass solos suck.

Although Pitchfork doesn't show it, the Constantines open for Foo Fighters and Sloan in Vancouver on August 5th as well. Cross your fingers for a Cons headlining gig before/after.

NPR has the song that Sufjan Stevens recorded just for them up. It ain't half bad either. Also, as you've probably already read Pitchfork reports that his new record is back on sale, at least until the first shipments sell out. Get your ass in gear and pick it up before you have to wait til August for Asthmatic Kitty to sort out the new artwork... which reminds me that I should get my ass in gear and do just that.

Talib Kweli plays the Commodore on the 22nd of this month, NOT the 20th as reported here previously. I'm not sure if they changed the date or if I just can't read. Probably the latter. Apologies for any confusion.

now playing: Jamie Lidell - What's the Use?

the cons won't be playing a headline gig in vancouver after the foo fighters gig as they are opening the tour all the way to TO...odds are slim they will play one before

i can't find any confirmation of TMV opening for SOAD in Vancouver -- ticketmaster doesn't say it, neither does TMV's website. any ideas?
