last things last

The Coup headlining show originally scheduled for Richard's and now moved to Sonar, is now a Mike Relm headlined show. Dude scratches with DVDs. For serious. Livesavas and Dope Poets Society (who warmed my heart with the song, "Fuck Mike Harris" a couple of years ago) round out the bill.

After gushing about Wolf Parade and the Neutral Milk Hotel reissue, I guess the Pitchfork staff felt like they needed some balance, cause they were a little hard on the new Fugees comeback track. Lemon-Red has the mp3.

Rachel's is NOT playing with the Magic Numbers on November 6th... cause they're headlining their own show on the 7th!

Ris Paul Ric (Chris Richards, formerly of Q and Not U) plays the Media Club on October 25th.

Jem plays Richard's on October 16th.

New release day! Off to get Metric/Ryan Adams/Wolf Parade.

edit: I somehow forgot to post that Firmdragon was kind enough to not only tape Saturday's AiH show, but also post it on DimeaDozen.

now playing: Elliot Smith - Angel in the Snow

yeah it's been delayed till next week. I picked up Ryan Adams and the new Deadly Snakes though. Wolf Parade I got at the show.

they had the album at the show?

teaches me to not stop at the merch table.

By Blogger Quinn, at 2:37 PM  

yup, they were selling the self-released 2nd EP too. I think the cover was printed on a colour inkjet.

By Blogger pinder, at 4:24 PM  

is the national show sold out?

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 12:21 AM  

according to the promoter's website, yes.

isn't the new Cons record out now?

Blackalicious too...

I should go to the record store soon.

By Blogger Graham, at 9:51 AM  

i thought the Cons was in a couple weeks.

After seeing him at the 604 Hip Hop Expo a few Sundays ago, Mike Relm has more than proven himself as my new favorite hero. Here it is again appropriate to call him, as GP would say, the "motherfucking truuth." Saw a rack card for the Sonar show at Beatstreet yesterday and had to try not to buy a ticket cos I've been concert binging lately.

i may still try and swing, that show and MIA.. cause the Coup are fuckin tight too.

By Blogger Quinn, at 9:31 PM  

Cons is definitely out now.
