shake your head, it's empty

Metric hits town for two shows on April Fool's at the Commodore, and all ager in the afternoon and a 19+ in the evening. Look for another one either the day before or the day after if/when the other shows sell out. Islands (former members of the Unicorns) are scheduled to open both shows.

Sunset Rubdown (Spencer from Frog Eyes/Wolf Parade)hits Richard's on May 7th. This seems a little ambitious (room size wise) to me, but SWAK rarely missteps, so what do I know?

How utterly awesome is Feist? The answer is very. If anybody has a download of that there Kimmel Live video and would like to pass it on, I would be indebted to you. (video link via For The Records)

Some opener clarification...
Magnolia Elec. Co. is NOT opening for Destroyer for the Vancouver date. Ladyhawk and The Christa Min (are the Nasty On ever coming back???) support Dan on April 12th. Also, Frog Eyes is opening for Pink Mountaintops.

now playing: Jimi Hendrix - Crosstown Traffic

Glad to see Islands coming to town. Too bad they're just opening for Metric though, not only would I like to see them play a longer set, but I'd rather not have to shell out 25 bucks to see them.

Quinn, don't know if you care or not, but the Sisters of Mercy (Temple of Love, This Corrosion, Alice, etc.; goth gods) are playing the Commodore March 26 (per Pollstar this morning; (pricey) tix are available on presale through http://tours.tsom.org.

Do you indie kids care about goth-industrial?

Hawksley Workman is playing at the Vancouver East Cultural Centre on April 3rd and 4th. I don't know who's opening yet.

For the record, I am also looking for an extra Belle and Sebastian ticket. I didn't think that that many people in Vancouver would care to see them so I didn't bother to buy a ticket in time. *sigh*
