love & communication

Cat Power returns to Vancouver on November 29th. This time around she'll play the Commodore with the Memphis Rhythm Band. Sorry kids, there's no afternoon all-ager booked... another reason to lament the death of the Vogue, which would've been a perfect venue.

Ozomatli is at the Commodore on the 26th of the same month.

K-Os is in the Ballroom on November 15th. Magneta Lane are opening... I can't say I'm all that excited about seeing K-Os again, but I've been meaning to catch, and keep missing Magneta Lane everytime they come through town as of late. (thanks to Chris for the last three)

Lee "Scratch" Perry is at Richard's on November 12th. If I were much of a music connousieur, I would've put this at the top, because this man is a legend.

Julie Doiron is at Richard's with Shotgun and Jaybird on November 2nd.

The Trews play the Pit Pub for a beer promo event on October 16th. Normally, I wouldn't care about either of these things, but I bet some of you do care that The Stills are opening. We might have some free tickets to give away over at Streethawk in a couple weeks.

Meligrove Band are in the Pit on November 11th.

Kid Congo Powers is at the Railway on November 17th. I know he was one of Nick Cave's Bad Seeds, but nothing else... clearly I should've read the press release on his record a little closer. (thanks to Josh for emailing about that one)

That's it for now. Hopefully you're checking out one of Andrew Bird's shows tonight.

Edit: You can stream the Hold Steady's new record Boys and Girls in America in its entirety right here. Go listen so you can argue with my assertion that this is the best record of the year... better than Ys, better than Beast Moans (which is sorta disappointing), better than Return to Cookie Mountain.

now playing: Spiritualized - Cop Shoot Cop

apparently you need to "look for the Cold Shots Amped Up Vehicle in your area"

seriously.

fyi: Kid Congo Powers was also in the Cramps and the Gun Club

That Hold Steady album sure is boring. With all I've heard about them, I didn't want to expect too much, and even my modest expectations weren't met. Some songs sounded like the beginnings of what could be great songs, but they just don't take it there. The thing that irritated me is that they kept reminding me of another band that they sound exactly like but I can't think of the name.
