...and stay for breakfast

Or at least wake up early enough for it. As Broken Social Scene have added an All Ages show in the afternoon before their now sold out soiree on November 13th. Both shows are at the Commodore. To end the speculation (somewhat)... No, I don't know who is opening, but if you take a look at Ms. Feist's touring schedule, you will note that she is in Seattle with BSS the day before, but has to be in Nashville the very next day... so it's fairly safe to count her out.

Sarah Slean plays the Van East Cultural Centre on November 20th. I think I might check this out, even though I wasn't that into her latest record. Seems like a much better venue than Richard's. If it turns out that it's a solo outing, I'll be there for sure.

Darren Hanlon, whom you may remember as the opener for the Magnetic Fields last November, plays the Media Club on November 3rd. If you're not into driving down the I-5 to see Conor (yes, I'm aware MMJ are playing that day too *yawn*), you may want to check him out. How many other people have a song about squash?

Local agit-poppers (ok, more like agit-metallers) Che: Chapter 127 play their final show together on October 22nd at Pub 340. The revolution still starts with you.

Speaking of G7 bands, Propagandhi are touring their favourite country, the US of A, in support of the their new album, Potemkin City Limits (out next Tuesday). Closest stop is Bellingham on the November 18th, at the Western Washington University.

now playing: Andrew Bird - Spanish for Monsters

Speaking of November 3, I'm going to see my old faves Front 242 at Plush.

Any news when tickets go on sale for the BSS all ages?

The Sarah Slean show is an evening with Sarah Slean - Solo....definitely worth checking out.

That BSS show on sale date is listed in this week's Georgia Straight, in the Sealed with a Kiss ad...forgot which day it was though
