the suburbs are for lovebirds

Fond of Tigers is playing an all-ager at the Museum of Anthropology at UBC on October 28th. Show starts at 2pm, and is described on the museum's website as "an experimental jazz concert." Ok.

Lucero and Rocky Votolato are doing an in-store at Scratch tomorrow ahead of their show at the Red Room. The in-store starts at 5:30pm. This thing's probably worth attending just to see how the hell they're going to fit the bands and people into Scratch.

The Dears play Richard's on November 27th with the Bloodlines.

Ray LaMontagne is at the Centre for the Performing Arts on November 16th.

Fake Shark, Real Zombie, Mongoose, Fun 100, and BA Johnston are doing an all-ager at Video In on November 4th.

Speaking of Fun 100, if you're bummed out that the New Pornographers show on October 21st is an early one, you should probably go to see Ladyhawk after. But otherwise! You can check out Fun 100, Vancougar and Neins Circa at the Media Club. Cover's only $5 if you have your NPs ticket stub, $10 otherwise.

Raising the Fawn is at the Lamp on November 23rd with In-Flight Safety and Mico.

Favourite Sons (who are from Brooklyn, but know how to spell "favourite" correctly) are at the Media Club on November 10th with the Drones (who are from Australia, so they can probably also spell "favourite" correctly). I just got the Drones CD in the mail, but have yet to pass judgement on it. Sean saw them live, and thought they were ace though.

Amy Millan is at the Plaza on November 29th. Her last show was pretty good, but this seems a bit soon for a return engagement.

While at the Republic last night, I noticed this ad in the washroom. Yeah, that's Paul Devro... and yes, after I took the photo, I realized how creepy wierd it is to take pictures in a public restroom. No one was in there, at least.

And in the shameless self-promo category: reviews of the new Leeroy Stagger and Akron/Family records in Off-Centre and of the Hold Steady on Streethawk.

And last, but probably best, here are the other two Boys and Girls in America outtakes. I *think* you get two of the four when you buy the album of iTunes. Except 1) 128kbps AAC files sound like shit on a stereo and 2) DRM = worst, so f-that noise. That being said, if you're downloading these, make sure you pick up the record... and go see them when they come here on the 20th. Any maybe even buy Tad Kubler a beer, just for being a stand up guy.

yeah, i was like, wtf? amy millan is back again, after a little more than 2 months since the last show? and up against cat power? i'll be surprised if she could fill half the room...

the drones will destroy the media club.

Your shameless plug also sideways plugged me! Well done. Now, that's a shameless plug I can get behind.

By Blogger Kaitlin, at 11:11 a.m.  

Considering Amy filled about half of Richard's last time, I'm willing to bet its less than that this time... I know I'll be watching Chan.

By Blogger Quinn, at 11:20 a.m.  

she may have filled half of Richard's but I think she's lost some of that weight since then. having to get onstage next to Feist and Haines every now and then will do that...

By Anonymous g, at 11:43 a.m.  

How will losing weight fill a room more than last time?? That makes no sense. Who really goes to shows to look at the figure of the singer?? Thats really silly.

By Anonymous Jess, at 11:51 a.m.  

...... He meant that she's probably lost some of her "pull" and will fill even less than half of Richards this time around. And that she pales in comparison to Feist and Hanes and Chan. Weight-sensitive much?

By Anonymous dre, at 1:01 a.m.  

im pretty sure he was actually making the fat joke... well, there seemed to be some sort of duality, but definitely also the joke in there.

can you repost these MP3s? Especially FOR BOSTON... thanks!!

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1:55 p.m.  

Fond of Tigers are pretty much an experimental jazz band, aren't they?

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 5:03 a.m.  

please repost FOR BOSTON. thank you.

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 2:37 p.m.  

Can you post 'For Boston' again to I've been looking everywhere for this song and I can't even get it on iTunes! I'd really appreciate it! Thanks!
