goodnight nobody



When did it get so hard to find a place to park in this city? I know there was a hockey and football game on, but it took me more than a half hour to find a pay spot anywhere. This caused me to unfortnately miss a good portion of Julie Doiron's set at the Media Club. What I did see was wonderful, however. The highlight coming with the second last song of her set, a cover of Paul Simon's "Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard" (a song that I can't say that I like all that much in it's original form).



In other news...

!!! (chik chik chik) play the Plaza Club (wtf??) on December 4th. I suppose it can't be any worse than playing Sonar, like the last time they came to town, but still, I'm confused... what's wrong with Richard's or something? (thanks to Kim for the heads up)

The Constantines return to Vancouver on January 14th. They play UBC's Pit Pub, for a mere $5. Unfortunately for those of you who are gainfully employed, it's a closed show... UBC Students only.

Vanmega has his October Mixtape up.

Finally, Ryan Adams returns to Letterman on November 4th. This time around, however, he won't be playing one from Cold Roses, or from his latest, Jacksonville City Nights. Word on the street is that Ryan will perform "Come Pick Me Up," from 2000's Heartbreaker (which is featured on the Elizabethtown Soundtrack).

now playing: Julie Doiron - Snow Falls In November

sean, you will be able to get in. closed campus usually just means that the show can't be advertised off campus...student cards are rarely checked.
