sleeping is giving in

It was on, then it was off, and then it was kinda-on again, and now it's official. The Arcade Fire play the PNE Forum on October 7th. Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday the 16th, and are available at Zulu and Ticketmaster for a sorta hefty $31.50+charges. Wolf Parade and Bell Orchestre support.

Speaking of Wolf Parade, tickets to their show with Architecture in Helsinki are now sold out at Zulu... but Scratch and RedCat still have some. If you want to go, you better get a jump on it.

Broken Social Scene tickets go on sale tomorrow at Scratch, Zulu, and Ticketmaster.

Controller.Controller. return to Vancouver with Magneta Lane on October 27th. They're playing the Red Room.

Depeche Mode play the Garage on November 15th. The Raveonettes open.

Nashville Pussy play the Arch on October 21st.

Last but not least: A gift for you, from TV on the Radio.

now playing: David Banner feat. Twista - On Everything

got my Wolf Parade/AIH tix yesterday. I predict it gets moved to RedRoom or Richards or something.

OH! thanks, Quinn!!!

:D :D :D

Crappy venue, but who cares. I'm not seeing them in Seattle, so I have felt SO left out, even if I did see them at Coachella.

Do you *have* a Sigur Ros ticket?

I might be interested if it's a good one and you're not using it.

oh... sorry oct. 27th.. not sept.

and, nope.. im not going.

At least, thank god, that Arcade Fire is playing an all ages show in Vancouver. Before when it was announced at the Commodore, Vancouver was the ONLY stop they made which was a 19+ show. I do have to say, Forum does suck though. I mean, couldn't they have done Plaza of Nations?
