things fall apart

The Roots play the Commodore on November 9th. The downside?... aside from the fact that Tipping Point was kinda shitty and they don't play "!!!!!!" live, is that tickets are $45... before service charges.

Dub Intefadah (Alden, formally of the Unicorns) plays the Anza Club on October 14th in celebration of Media Democracy Day. They Shoot Horses, Don't They? and Sean Wesley Wood and the Vancouver Vipers support. $6-8 (sliding scale) at the door.

Head over to Out of 5 and check out "10 covers that eclipse the originals." Can't say that I agree with all of the choices, but Al Green's take on "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" made my cold heart warm again. These should rotate sometime fairly soon, so get them before another 10 songs go up.

Now head over to ClipTrip and check out the "upsettingly beautiful" video for Conor "the new next Dylan, apparently" Oberst's (bka Bright Eyes) "First Day of My Life."

Finally, let's talk about tomorrow's Feist concert. The last couple of months have brought some great shows to our fair city, but I would be lying if I said that the prospect of any of them got me more excited than Miss Leslie hitting the Commodore with Jason Collett and New Buffalo in tow. I think I've already posted three of the tracks from Collett's latest, and I would post "I've Got You and You've Got Me," from Sally Seltmann's debut, but why put up something that you can find at the record store, when I can throw up something you can't? Not to knock her excellent backing band, but this is a recording of Feist when (I think), she's at her best: when she's alone.

download: Feist - Let It Die (live on WOXY)

now playing: Stevie Wonder - We Can Work It Out (Beatles Cover)

good news about the roots... $45.00 is a bit steep though. And your website is all screwy, I think. The background's black for some reason.

i am still struggling between feist or hockey. does anyone know who will be opening for bss yet?

havent heard about a bss opener... i think feist may be sold out... dont quote me on that though.

ill admit though.. missing the home opener, especially with gretz behind the bench for the cayotes is hurting my heart.
