One of my favourite discoveries of 2005, Sereena Maneesh, are set to play Richard's on March 25th. If you haven't heard them and are a fan of My Blood Valentine, you should do yourself a favour and check out the mp3 below. If such things sway you, I will also note that the PFork gave them a glowing review.

download: Serena Maneesh - Selina's Melodie Fountain

On a completely unrelated note, did anybody catch Shaking All Over on ye olde CBC tonight? If you didn't, I highly recommend trying to watch/tivo the inevitable re-run. It's a stellar documentary about the beginnings of modern Canadian popular music. I personally loved Matt Good's summation of the Band: "they're the Band, what else do you need to say?"

now playing: Neil Young - Helpless

Tool is supposedly headlining Day 2. That's shocking. But there's some worthwhile alternative and still another 70-odd bands tba.

On Feb 25th, right after you leave Rogue Wave and Nada Surf at Richards, you can go outside and lineup again as Mike Relm is spinning his first vancouver headline show with No Luck Club in tow. Tix's $15 at Zulu. Show starts at 10:30pm

they offered on the Smiths and MBV... i wouldve killed to see the Smiths.

A Smiths reunion would have guaranteed a sell-out. People came for miles to see the Pixies at Coachella when they re-formed but more would've come from further to see the Smiths.
