the owls go

Pitchfork lets us know that Architecture in Helsinki return to Vancouver on September 24th at an "artspace" at 156 W. Hastings (right around the happy neighbourhood of Abbott and Hastings). I know nothing else about this venue... In fact, I was going to suggest that it might be the Church of Pointless Hysteria, but after comparing addresses, I conclude that that would be wrong. More info to come.

Good news: The Blood Brothers finally come to Vancouver post-Crimes, on October 11th.
Bad news: They're playing the Croatian Cultural Centre with Coheed and Cambria and Dredg.

Blood Brothers are also the musical guest on Jimmy Kimmel on September 20th.

Missed the VMA's like me? Fear not, FluxBlog and Stylus give you the play-by-plays. Apparently Kelly C stole the show... better than Kanye?

Speaking of Kanye, Pitchfork gave Late Registration (officially out tomorrow, lest you forget) a whopping 9.5. It's a fine little record, and I'll still pick it up tomorrow... but that's a little ridiculous, no? It's not even his best, nevermind the year's best. And, surely that Kano record is better.

Rollie is a little more harsh. He's also got his remix of Do They Know It's Hallowe'en up.

A letter to Gwen Stefani:
Dear Gwen,

Why did you put the Photek remix of "Cool" on your new single? Where is the Richard X remix that I have been so patiently awaiting? I mean, the Photek one is ok, but it ain't the Diplo remix of "Hollaback Girl." In fact, it isn't even the JLC Remix of "What You Waiting For." It's going to be on some obscure 12" isn't it? That cuts a little, darling.

With Love,
Quinn


Finally, the Juan MacLean tomorrow night. Yay or nay? Opinions welcome below. The show is cancelled... problem solved, I suppose... although there is that Hella show... (thanks to Neil for the headsup)

now playing: Diplo - Live in Montreal

I heard it was cancelled (The Juan Maclean), otherwise I was going to go.

A new Ted Leo song!

Dan Dickinson recorded it live a concert, and is sharing with permission from Ted Leo.

Find it here http://vjarmy.com/archives/2005/08/ted_leo_new_song_mp3.php

Something to perhaps anticipate at this Friday's show at Richard's.

I went to the Nolstalgia new years party at 156 W Hastings. It was also used for the Emily Carr graduation party. It's a neat space and should be used more.
