i'm gonna run

Sorry for the lack of updates, I had a busy weekend... busy in the tons-of-fun way, not busy in a stressed-out-oh-my-god way... so don't feel bad.

But why don't we start with something that you can feel bad about. Oh Fiery Furnaces, why must you break my heart? Not only are Matthew and Elanor bypassing our fair city, but they play in Seattle (at Neumo's) on the same day as Black Dice...

Speaking of Black Dice, their show now has a venue. Go scratch your head and get your mind blown at the Mesa Luna on October 3rd.

Jesse Malin opens for Ryan Adams on August 9th.

Two bits of show news from my friend Shea. If Shea ever gets enough time to start blogging, you should all just go there, because he'll make this place obsolete:
Keren Ann returns to Vancouver to play the Media Club on September 4th.
and... Jason Collett opens for Blue Rodeo on August 30th and 31st in Stanley Park.

If you were lucky (or rich) enough to catch him, and want to relive the moment, the Bob Dylan shows from July 20th and July 21st are up at DimeaDozen.org.

You Ain't No Picasso has mp3s of Thurston Moore giving a preview of new Sonic Youth tunes up.

Bid on James Hetfield's dead animals.

Last but most definitely not least, here's a taster of the Iron and Wine and Calexico EP. The EP is out on September 20th, and you can catch both bands on tour... but you'll have to, predictably, drive to Seattle to do it.

now playing: Sufjan Stevens - They Are Night Zombies!!...

SFSS is working with Sealed With a Kiss to secure a venue now, so things should get sorted out... as Sealed With a Kiss actually knows how to put on a show.

it would be nice... but seeing as theyre playing theatres that hold around 2000 in most places, its unlikely.
