De La Soul (who don't seem to have an official site) play UBC's Pit Pub on September 10th with Mike Relm and Cadence Weapon.

download: Lil' Wayne - Fireman (Cadence Weapon's Snow in Edmonton Remix)

Two Gallants are at Pat's on September 22nd... toss up between that and Viva Voce.

Daytrotter has four new Two Gallants' tracks up.

The Clientele are at Pat's on August 25th... good promo for that one. (thanks to apl for the last two)

Kid Koala is at Richard's on November 5th. Doesn't he usually do the Commodore?

Shameless self promo: I did Music Pix for the Tyee this week and have a bunch of stuff in Discorder this month. Discorder also features interviews with Casey Mercer of Frog Eyes and Efrim from Godspeed/ASMZ and Carla Bozulich that I enjoyed immensely.

now playing: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Rifles

Looks like Magnolia will be back around Oct 11.

Hopefully there are no sewers backing up this time

So the Tyee's commenting doesn't seem to be working right now so I'm just going to post this here: If you want to check out a really good audio documentary on the history of cutup music and sampling then you should listen to Raiding the 20th Century by Strictly Kev
you can download it here.

sweet. thanks jordie... admittedly i just sort of threw that together after dude left a "rap is crap. sampling is stealing" type comment on graham's article a couple weeks ago.

i think i've heard this one before
don't just tag along, start a war if you want to
looks just like the sun
i know you can stay a girl by holding a boy's hand...
i was meant for the stage
up with people
drink up baby, stay up all night
feels like a long time
