put my suits right on the guestlist

Pitchfork lists the dates for Broken Social Scene's Fall tour. November 13th sees the band return to the Commodore in support of their (by then officially released) new LP, cleverly titled, Broken Social Scene. Feist supports in Seattle the day before, but there's currently no set opener for here. Ticket info will be up here as soon as I can get, as you'll want to jump on this one fast. I'm willing to bet that there are a bunch of people who've posted tracks from the new album already (in fact, I'm sure of it). So, in lieu of that, here's a live track, that was played as recently as this summer, but is nowhere to be found on the new record (or EP). What happened to Jimmy, and what exactly is a "photocall?" A teleconference perhaps?

I was going to whine about how Great Lake Swimmers idea of "Canada" seems to be skewed, as whenever they announce a Canadian tour, it encompasses nothing West of Ontario. But, I'm so psyched about BSS, that it's not that big a deal today. You hear that Tony Dekker??

The Beastie Boys want you to remix them. Only you can save To the Five Boroughs.

A correction: the Blackalicious show that's been posted in the sidebar forever, is actually a headlining show by Michael Franti and Spearhead with Blackalicious supporting. Sorry for any confusion.

Finally, based on comments on my last post, I think it's safe to say that (aside from fairly obscure atmospheric Japanese compositions) everything leaks at least a day before. Neil Young leaked yesterday, in fact. Metric? any day now I'm sure. Apparently Lost Highway isn't sending out any advance copies of his second release of 2005, Jacksonville City Nights... but they did the same thing with Cold Roses, and it still leaked a month in advance. The internet may not be ruining music, but it is most definitely destroying the concept of release dates.

hopefully Feist or Amy Milan can make it to the BSS show at the Commodore this time. last time they were without and promised they'd play "anthems for a 17yr old girl" next time.

But it's all about the fairly obscure japanese compositions! :)

any news of the venue for the arcade fire? is it really the commodore? and when will tickets be on sale?

Yeah, I was looking for Arcade Fire @ Commodore info too. Was hoping it would be announced in the Straight today, but nothing.

haha, Great Lake Swimmers are playing tonight with Akron/Family and Jon Rae Fletcher and the River for 8 bucks at the Horseshoe. Don't know if I'll go though as Kardinal is doing a free show at the same time...
