jackie's dressed in cobras

The New Pornographers are doing two nights at the Plaza (which is half the capacity of the Commodore) in celebration of the anniverseries of Mint Records and Exclaim! Magazine on October 21st and 22nd. Immaculate Machine and Novillero open the first show, while openers for night two are still TBA. Tix go on sale this Friday at all your favourite non-TM locations.

TV on the Radio are at the Commodore on October 3rd. (via Brooklyn Vegan)

Hidden Cameras will be in town on December 3rd. Venue confirmation TBA.

Les Georges Leningrad are at the Media Club with Duchess Says on November 29th.

To the guy who seemed insulted because I haven't listed that Jeremy Enigk is playing Richard's on September 2nd, it's because I had no idea who he was. Then I googled his name and found out he was the lead dude from Sunny Day Real Estate and the Fire Theft. So if you're into that, there is the info.

Those wonderful folks over at Discorder have taken a page from The Chicago Tapes Project and created Mixed Apes. The basic concept: make a mix, plant a mix, post where you put it, go get someone elses mix. Hit the website for more details, then go out and fill the streets with beautiful music.

Some Velvet Blog and I Am Fuel, You Are Friends have teamed up to deconstruct Girl Talk, posting the mp3s of the tracks that were cut and pasted into Night Ripper. Very cool.

Matthew put up mp3s of Sleater-Kinney's last show in Vancouver (from February 2005). I think they were up at RBally at some point, but if you missed them you can grab them now... and you should, because that show was awesome.

now playing: Supersuckers - Born With A Tail

James Murphy (LCD Soundsystem) & The Juan Maclean will be DJing at Celebrities on September 22nd... I'd take that over Miss Kittin any day!

umm....Juan MacLean has failed to get accross the border twice now so I wouldn't count on him showing up....but James Murphy is rad.

actually shea, Juan Maclean played the Calgary show with MSTRKRFT before flaking out on Vancouver 'cause he apparently double-booked himself in Boston that night... he may be an idiot, but i don't think he's a criminal.

By Anonymous chris, at 9:29 p.m.  

yes, fully aware he did play the calgary show. but here are more reasons than a criminal conviction for getting turned away the border. (which has happened to him twice before).

john aka juan maclean definitely made it across to play toronto at least twice last year ... and he's on dfa/emi so i wouldn't think that they'd just forget to do the visa shit correctly.

Awww...I didn't know RBally had already posted the songs. Sorry if you already had them!

By Anonymous matthew, at 7:00 a.m.  

Graham, the "visa shit" is done by his booking agent, not his label. Also, Customs can arbitarily decide to not let someone in the country if they so choose, regardless of if they have a visa/work permit or not.

any word on where to get decemberists tickets that aren't from their site because they make you pick em up the day of the show and i'd rather buy them and have them now.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:57 p.m.  

not sure about Decemberist tix yet... but its a Commodore show, so itll be up on TM when theyre on for public onsale (and then at Scratch, Zulu, etc at the same time)
