xmas steps

Pitchfork reports that Mogwai have added more dates to their NA tour, including a stop at the Commodore on May 24th. Hopefully Vancouverites will pay a little more attention to the music this time around, as I still recall "My Father, My King" dropping out into that final quiet bit and hearing nothing but chatter and clinking bottles. Mogwai, of course, got the noisy people back by blowing out the ear drums of everybody.

Boompa artist, and now AstralWorks signee, Small Sins (whom you may remember as Ladies and Gentlemen) are at the Lamplighter on April 20th. Magneta Lane, whose new album ain't too shabby, supports. I knew I should've passed on those Matt Good tickets.

Speaking of Boompa, they're now home to Toronto's Hylozoists. The instrumental outfit boasts quite the past/present lineup (members of the Sadies, BSS, Weakerthans, Cuff the Duke, Final Fantasy, and many many others), and you can check them out on March 30th, when they hit town in an opening slot for Cuff the Duke and the Fembots at the Red Room. Check out their MySpace page (linked above) for a couple of mp3s.

Biz Markie is at Atlantis on March 28th. He got what I need, but he say he just a friend. I hereby apologize for the terribleness and obviousness of that joke.

Peter Hook is doing a DJ set at Richard's on March 31st. These celebrity DJ sets always sketch me out. Does Peter Hook actually know how to blend tracks? Or are you just paying to go see a famous dude press play on some records? If Peter Hook is going to be juggling beats and re-remixing "Blue Monday" to 20-minutes, then it might be worth the $20.

Stanton Warriors are at Richard's on March 30th and April 1st, surrounding Peter in a hug of breakbeats. I actually no very very little about them, other than one mp3 that I aquired somewhere (maybe the Hollertronix board) that features Twista... and it slays. Party starter, as they say. I'm running late for class, but I'll post it up tomorrow for y'all.

Finally, thanks to Jen for reminding me that Cadence Weapon will be rounding out the Arts County Fair XV bill. No word on whether Rollie is going to stick around town for his own underground, headlining affair, but if I hear anything, I shall keep ye posted. This year's bill is totally a downer for those dudes who you lived in rez with who keep whatever Jack Johnson's latest record is on repeat and think Dave Matthews invented music around 1996.

now playing: Stanton Warriors feat. Twista - Pop Ya Cork

I dunno what it is with people at post-rock shows - it drove me crazy at the Mono show as well. Who pays money to go see a show and then talks through it?

Thanks for confirming the Hylozoists' signing to Boompa. Their roster just keeps getting better.

i think this year's bill is a total downer, and i'm only an occasional Jack Johnson and Dave Matthews fan.

fyi, The Magic Numbers are coming back April 24th to the Commodore (according to their mailing list)

Just throw on TSW's The Stanton Sessions and sit back at ease while picturing the Richard's crowd gettin' their collective asses fried like nasty, greasy, engine-block eggs.

Good times indeed.
