your blood in mine

Forget what I said about Serena Maneesh playing on March 25th, because SWAK has one upped themselves and booked them a day earlier with Art Brut. If you don't already have a ticket for Art Brut, and are not currently skipping work/school/running for your door to get a ticket for this, you are a foolish human being. No "I'm going to Belle and Sebastian" excuses, this is an early show, you can do both.

In other SWAK related, "we're putting two artists together to make one superduper show" news, Jason Forrest is now set to headline the show previously announced as a We Are Wolves affair (though they're still on the bill).

Are you excited for upcoming shows yet?

Dungen plays Richard's on April 23rd.

How about now?

Wintersleep are at the Media Club on March 31st.

Ok, that last one didn't really excite me either, but I was already excited.

I went to see Jeff Tweedy again last night. Since I'm a fairly massive Wilco fan I usually try to see them twice when they do a West Coast swing as well, though they don't vary the setlist up that much, so I wouldn't recommend it for casual fans. That being said, of the 20 or 22 songs that Tweedy played both nights, 10 or so varied from night to night... well worth the trip down.

now playing: Wilco - ELT

Better setlist for the Seattle show. Cannot understand why Not For the Season hasn't been put out (officially) under the Wilco banner. The Loose Fur version blows.

A completely unrelated comment to the above, but Death Cab and Franz Ferdinand will be hitting up Van April 20 at a TBA venue. The show was just announced.

quinn! you don't know me but I'm trying frantically to find any info about the Ariel Pink show that is allegedly happening. Zulu isn't carrying tickets and all I have heard thus far is that it's an unsubstantiated rumor!

this is essential. where'd you hear about this? the paw tracks site has him playing seattle on the 13th but no vancouver date. a few friends have mentioned it but, like i said, it seems to be not much more than hearsay. please please please hit me back at rlongoz at gmail dot com. love your blog.

cheers
