desperate youth, blood thirsty babes

TV on the Radio play Richard's at May 6th. I *think* their new one should be out by then. At any rate, you can almost guarantee that it'll be leaked onto the internet by then. Tickets are on sale next Friday for a mere $17 + charges. (thanks Shea)

Isis is set to tear your head right off of your body at Richard's on April Fool's Today.

If you were too slow on the Animal Collective ticket buying front, fear not. The show's been moved to the Commodore, and also has a new date (March 1st). Tickets for Richard's will be honoured at the Commodore, and more tickets will be released on Tuesday.

Most Serene Republic are at UBC's Pit Pub on March 11th.

My (second) favourite Vancouver club night, "The Kids," is migrating further East on February 11th. And, to celebrate the move from the Met to the Columbia, Romance (Ladyhawk side project) are going to play a set (in addition to the usually stellar DJ lineup of My!Gay!Husband! and AndrewAndrewAndrew).

My music picks are up at the Tyee this week. Free and legal mp3s from Ladyhawk, Someone Still Loves You Borist Yeltsin, Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins, Jose Gonzalez, and Tapes N Tapes. Don't forget to check it out every Friday, to get some more suggestions from various other contributors.

Last, but most certainly not least, don't forget to go vote tomorrow. While you're at it, ponder the question of what is more embarrassing of the two inevitable options? A government of theives, or a government whose pegged Foreign Minister (among others) doesn't have a firm grip on science? Go democracy, go! At the very least, an election means a special edition of the Mercer Report tomorrow, and that will be pure comedy gold.

now playing: Akron/Family - Sorrow Boy

Offtopic, but a question about the Stills concert: What do you mean "open show"?
Thanks.
