i think you've got it in for me

We say punk! You say rock!

The Buzzcocks are at the Red Room on July 30th. I'm going to go ahead and make the obvious claim that Singles Going Steady is one of the greatest compilations of all time (and also had one of the best LP titles of all time). I've got it on CD and vinyl... it's just that good. (via Brooklyn Vegan)

SubPop lists Mudhoney at Richard's on June 16th.

The Subhumans are at the Red Room on June 22nd. If you'll recall, last time they played here it was a little bit messy.

How about some bad news? Because really, it wouldn't be Vancouver in the last week without some crappy news on the ol' music front. Remember that show that Built to Spill had originally pencilled in for the Commodore on June 12th? Well, you can forget it, because they're now starting their tour with a multi-night stand in Seattle, and one of Jack Johnson's surfing buddies is now scheduled at the Ballroom that night.

Ok... now some better news:
Ray Davies is at the Commodore on July 9th. He plays mostly solo stuff live, but this is still pretty cool.

For those who inquired, I don't know the entire story regarding Mesa Luna's closure. Apparently the former owners are now m.i.a. with some people's damage deposits for other upcoming events, and it's days are truly numbered though. Add it to the list with the Vogue, Blinding Light of dead all ages venues.

Let's continue this wake-like post-mortem though... Kat already mentioned the Hot Hot Heat led local extravaganza a couple years back as one of her favourites at the place (in the comments of the last post). What's yours?

I think I'm going to have to go with the Blood Brothers with Red Light Sting and A Luna Red in Summer 2002.

now playing: Fuck Me USA - Infinite Slope

memorable Mesa Luna shows:

- Tegan & sara's birthday show - Sep 03. Cake for everyone.

- Isis/These Arms Are Snakes - Nov 04.

TAAS absolutely destroying with "Angela's Secret". My fav show of 04.

Hopefully someone has good memories of The Dillinger Escape Plan / The Locust show from Feb 04 cause I missed it.

some of the overlaps suck -- but not much you can do about it.

The Mesa show which most immediately comes to mind is the Blood Brothers + You Say Party! show in January. It was my first time seeing YSP!WSD!... also, reading your review the next morning was hilarious, as I am completely guilty of being "an underage who is too fond of dancing on the stage". Hah.

Dandi Wind (Dec. 05) was great, though I suspect I was one of only three other minors (if that) taking advantage of the all-ages show that Dandi put on.

also:

Animal Collective & Black Dice in August 2004

Converge, Terror, Cursed, and some other random metal band in September 2005

both shows were great at times, but decidely mediocre at others (*cough* Black Dice *cough*)
