make out. fall out. make up.

Love is All is at Pat's on October 31st. I still think 9 Times The Same Song is absolutely wonderful, but the hype seems to have died down a bit (you will recall that they got a 8.7 on the 'Fork). Since its Halloween, free entry if you come dressed as Ryan Schreiber. (thanks Shea)

Ladyhawk are at the venerable and classy Columbia October 21st with Catfish Haven. My!Gay!Husband! is spinning the dancefloor tunes before and after. While I'm always excited to see the 'hawk, I'm really amped for the blue-eyed trailer park soul of the openers.

Speaking of the Columbia and My!Gay!Husband!, September 16th marks the end of the Kids. They're bringing down the house with DJ Assault. You can still get your dj kicks on Wednesday nights starting September 20th, when M!G!H! is behind the decks at the Royal Unicorn Cabaret (no joke) and on Saturday nights starting on September 23rd when the other Kids DJs rock the Balmoral (which is now hopefully free of mice).

Pink Mountaintops are at the Plaza on October 8th. The 9th is a holiday, so you can stay late and drink up.

Pelican play the Lamp on October 1st with Daughters and KEN Mode for the Exclaim Aggressive Tendencies tour. (thanks Bill)

The 604 Hip Hop Expo kicks off on the 15th of this month. In addition to the DJ Shadow show, the Expo boasts Ice T, Z Trip, and and a whole bunch of other stuff.

Livestock is celebrating their birthday on Sunday by shutting down the whole block in front of the store. They're providing skaters, DJs, BBQ, and beer for free from 4-8pm.

The Album Leaf are at the Plaza on November 17th.

Finally, Banksy provides YouTube evidence of how he punked poor Paris. If you haven't heard, that's Danger Mouse dropping the beat on the backing track.



now playing: Of Montreal - Bunny Ain't No Kind Of Rider
