all their broken hearts

I was out of town, and then working overtime finishing an essay, but here is some stuff that you may or may not have already heard about that happened since I left...

Julie Doiron is at the Media Club on April 19th. If you would like to get yourself as excited as I am for seeing Julie live, you should head over to the fabulous Section Two, who have a live set by Julie up in mp3 for your downloading pleasure. While you're at it, check out video of John K. Samson (of Weakerthans fame), Christine Fellows, and others. (thanks to Shea for the show headsup, thanks to the also fabulous B(oot)log for the link to Section Two)

Need to keep up to date with all those local shows that I a) don't hear about or b) don't mention? (it's not because I'm some scene hating curmudgeon, it's just hard to keep track of them all) Well, check out The City Is Here For You To Use, and sign up for their online zine, which will be delivered promptly to your inbox every two weeks, chock full of VanCity happenings (music and otherwise) to keep you occupied.

Blackalicious is at the Commodore on April 21st. If you're not into spending the $25, but are into spending some gas money to get up to Whistler, you can check them out at the Whistler Ski and Snowboard Fest Outdoor Concert Series for free on the 22nd. J5 plays on the 22nd, and Metric rocks the mountiain on April 18th.

You should read this article (login/pass) about Broken Social Scene (and the Toronto "scene") right now. You probably want to avoid the bickering over at stillepost about said scene, however. (via Chromewaves)

In more BSS linkage, Stereogum has the original version of the band's cover of "Puff the Magic Dragon" up for download. Paper Bag Records couldn't get the songs publishers to sign off on the ultra wierd tale of reunion at the end.

Hard-Fi hits the Plaza with the Rakes on April 22nd.

This has been posted all over the place, but if you didn't already know, Team Love is very graciously hosting the Jenny Lewis and the Watson Twins record up on their site. I would assume they don't have the rights to give away the cover, but everything else is there. If you haven't already bought the record, go forth, download, listen, fall in love, and then (and this is the important part) help the fine people at Team Love prove that if you put out quality releases you have nothing to fear from file sharing by running down to your favourite independent record store to buy Rabbit Fur Coat.

Finally, the TV On The Radio show has gone from "venue TBA, surprise coming!" to back at Richard's. We, of course, will not hold this against SWAK, because they are unquestionably awesome. In lieu of any surprise on May 6th, here's the leadoff track to their forthcoming record. This is unmastered, but its a bit of a taste of what to expect when the real deal hits the streets.

download: TV On The Radio - Playhouses (unmastered)

now playing: Animal Collective - Turn Into Something

team love is not that nice to "my area", it seems: "We apologize, but this track cannot be downloaded in your area."
