i want you so hard

Eagles of Death Metal are at the Commodore on June 10th. I haven't been that huge on QotSA since Rated R, but Eagles of Death Metal are starting to grow on me. They have an entire show up for download on their official site.

Cage is at Richard's on July 15th with Mr. Lif and Camu Tao.

3 Inches of Blood are at the Red Room on June 5th.

Catlow is at the Morrissey on June 15th. Anybody know if the Morrissey hosting shows is going to be a permanent thing?

Short notice... very short notice, in fact... but, You Say Party! We Say Die! is doing a surprise show at the Ukranian Dance Hall at 6pm today.

Pride Tiger are playing a set there tonight as well.

Both shows are all-ages. When's the last time there was an all-ages double header like this in Vancouver?

The Straight has more info on the Mesa Luna shutting down. I cribbed that link from Luisa on StillePost, which more Vancouverites should start using.

Here is a question about PFork... How is it that the Beirut record gets a 7.7 and is "recommended music," but Final Fantasy and Cadence Weapon both score 8.0s and aren't?

Speaking of, that Beirut album is aces, but everyone else has already talked it up, so there's no need for me to go into more detail. Go get it, though.

I did the Music Pix for the Tyee this week: five Music Waste bands.

now playing: the Zombies - This Will Be Our Year

The Morrissey has had shows since I can remember; just not very often...

p.s. i have no idea if tickets are on sale or what.....infomatrixes from the KRS website are sparse to be sure.

I'm liking the Beirut record too actually. Surprised me.
