coax me

Sloan is at the Commodore on October 24th. The Yoko Casionos support. Apparently Sloan's forthcoming disc has a whopping thirty songs on it. I dig them, but unless they had some sort of revelatory bout of prolific songwriting genius, I sense some editing might have helped the finished product... I have yet to hear it though, so we shall see.

Gomez is at the Centre on October 18th with Matt Pond PA. (thanks Cy)

Doctor Octagon is at Shine on November 17th. Are you excited? You should be excited.

Speaking of rad hip-hop shows at Shine, Spank Rock are playing there on December 7th. If you were at the Plaza last time they came to town, you are also excited for this. You should be excited.

MSTRKRFT are back at Shine on October 28th. This will be far less exciting.

Margaret and the Nuclear So and Sos are the the Media Club on October 18th with The Elected. In retrospect, that's probably the other way around, as I assume the Elected will headline.

Nashville Pussy are at Richard's on October 12th. Pride Tiger is opening. I was out at UBC on Friday for a show/free beer, and one of the dudes from Pride Tiger ran a "borrowed" golf cart into their tour van... oh they also slayed.

Gwar are at the Commodore on November 9th. My cousin is so amped about getting sprayed with fake blood again, you can't even imagine.

Primus plays the Orpheum on November 29th.

and finally, if you ever thought to yourself: "self, I would love to hear reggae covers of Radiohead," The Easy Star All-Stars bring the Radiodread tour to Richard's on October 6th. (thanks DB)

now playing: Phoenix - Long Distance Call (24 Hours a Day Mix)

it just went up on pollstar. but, i'd imagine its a House of Blues show, so there should be a decent amount of notice via email/their website/the straight ads etc

the yokos are opening up the whole tour and their album is FINALLY done and coming out on the 26th. it's called "these are the new old times".

also, gregory goose is touring with sloan on keys so apparently the 30 new songs have a lot of piano.

ive since heard that some of the 30 songs are more like interludes.. little 30sec-1min clips of music... maybe that explains the extra instrumentation as well.

tix for the show go onsale friday at 10am.
