easy love

MSTRKRFT and Tiga are set to bring what will, undoubtedly, be a night of electro madness to Richard's on April 29th. Get out your dancing shoes.

The Fall are at Richard's on May 20th. Does anyone out there no what kind of sets they play? Do they draw from the full catalogue, or just stick to new stuff? (thanks to Kyle for the headsup)

Feist will return to the Vancouver FolkFest on July 15th. If you've been reading since last summer, you know I can't stand the FolkFest, but depending on who else plays that day, I may cave. (thanks to Jason for the headsup)

Julie Doiron is playing an in-store at Zulu Records the day before her Media Club gig. Shotgun and Jaybird, who are opening the Media Club show, will backup Julie. Time tba.

The Strokes are at the Plaza of Nations on May 17th. I've always felt like they were so suited to bars, but I suppose this is better than playing a theatre. At any rate, I'll be at the Concretes that night.

The absolutely fabulous Schedule Two has (in my mind) one upped the Tapes 'N Tapes videos they posted last week, by posting five Jason Collett videos. These include Feist taking Emily Haines' part on "Hangover Days," and two new tunes, including "Not Over You." I've been looking for a decent copy of the latter for months. The perfect primer for Jason's first headlining show here in ages, next Monday. Those Schedule Two folks are going to keep the amazing live music recordings coming too... Akron/Family, Metric, and Mates of States (among other) goodies are already lined up. While you're there, check out the full Julie Doiron set they have up in .mp3. It features her cover of "Me and Julio Down By the Schoolyard."

Boots Riley (of the Coup) is doing a speaking engagement at Tokyo Lounge this Thursday (the 23rd). The outspoken activist, will also be spinning tracks from the Coup's forthcoming record, Pick A Bigger Weapon. Entry is free, RSVP to: info@spectrum-events.com to confirm your spot. You may only know the Coup from the unfortunately timed original cover of their previous effort, Party Music, but I assure you, they're stellar.

The Nasty On are back! In addition to the new songs up on their MySpace, they'll be the first band on the bill of the Dirtbombs show on April 2nd.

Biz Markie's DJ set is postponed until further notice.

Finally, Billboard reports that Epitaph will release the Refused Are Fucking Dead DVD on April 25th. In addition to the requisite interviews and videos, it will also feature footage of every single song from the Shape of Punk to Come performed live. Hot damn.

now playing: Jason Collett - Not Over You (live)

I saw The Strokes at the Plaza in 2004. It wasn't worth it, their performance was bland and the band wasn't together. The Plaza sucks as a venue anyways. You're better off spending your money elsewhere.

Related to a few posts back - I absolutely love that Final Fantasy CN Tower song. Thanks for the MP3 Quinn.

Is there an official source for The Fall gig info? I'm actually trying to find info on whether there'll be a Toronto show which I'm really, really hoping for!

But in response to your query about what their live set'll be like on this tour, check out the link below:
