don't take it personal, when they forget about you
The forthcoming, self-titled, Ladyhawk record has surfaced on the internet. If you've poked your mouse around here before, you know that this is one of my most anticipated records of the year, and upon early listens, I haven't been let down. Actually, that's a lie. My favourite song of theirs isn't on here, but that doesn't take away from the fact that the record, in and of itself, is a pretty great debut. The boys are playing at Goonpack on Saturday for one of two Emily Carr aftergrad parties (the other is Low Budget at the Columbia). The record is out in physical form on June 6th.

Of Montreal are at the Plaza on September 1st. If Vashti Bunyan plays a show up here around the same time, my will to head down to Bumbershoot will be mostly shot.
The Futureheads are at the Commodore on June 15th with French Kicks. Rob is totally psyched. So am I. (thanks Shea)
Jenny was kind enough to give the headsup that Buck 65 is playing the Commodore on June 27th for the JazzFest. In addition to Buck and the previously blogged Neko Case show, Elvis Costello and the Imposters are at the Orpheum on June 26th.
In obligatory Final Fantasy news of the week, Owen's website is back up.
I was going to post "Let's Get Out Of This Country" by Camera Obscura this morning, because it is the perfect slice of summer, but Music (for Robots) beat me to it. They also made the very apt observation that everyone always brings up the reigning champs of twee, Belle and Sebastian, when talking about Camera Obscura, but there is something more soulful going on here (no offense to B&S). I've always liked Saturday Looks Good To Me as a reference point. To all my gradding and country escaping friends: download this and blast it on your plane, train, or automobile. For the record, I'm pretty sure the lyric is "we'll find a cathedral so that you can convince me I'm pretty," not what David titled his entry.

Sorry to bother you with this... but it's desperation making me do this :)
Do you know anyone who would know the presale password for the upcoming Chili Peppers North American Tour sale (May 7)? They play GM Place on Sept 14.
