take me out (again)
The video from Saturday night. The other guys were 2/3rds of the Cribs. That dude with the glasses on the far right is just some guy from around town who jumps on stages once in awhile.
Somewhat related (because the Evaporators covered them earlier in the night), Pointed Sticks are doing two shows on January 6th at Richard's. The afternoon show is an all-ager.
Do Make Say Think are at Richard's on March 5th.
I completely forgot about the Subtle show at Richard's on January 24th, but now seems like an apt time to mention it. As you've probably already read, dudes got robbed in Barcelona. If you're so inclined, you can help them out by donating $20, and in exchange Dose One will do a personalized portrait for you. Pigeon John opens the Vancouver date.
Way in advance, but Gwen Stefani is at GM Place on June 15th. I saw her last time she came here, and it was actually pretty friggin' good. The Sweet Escape (which is out tomorrow) is pretty crap though.
While I do care about Gwen, I honestly - and someone's going to call blasphemy on this, I'm sure - could care less about Buffy Ste-Marie, but she's playing with Final Fantasy at the Centre for the Performing Arts on February 17th. Jim Byrnes and Kinnie Starr round out the bill.
The reformed Zombies are at Richard's on March 11th. This may or may not be a total car wreck.
The folks at Golden Family United have a whole slew of shows lined up at the Other Space (all ages venue w/bar! yay!). The most notable one might be Mt. Eerie on Valentine's Day. And really, what is more romantic than watching Phil Elvrum get all Cat Power on the crowd? Can I just get a little more reverb maybe, please?
The rest of the shows that are already scheduled are as follows:
Twin Crystals with Yukon and Modern Creatures on December 6th
Sean Wesley Wood with Old Bridge and Organ Trail on December 20th
The Ingredients with London Spy and the SSRIs on January 24th.
now playing: Of Montreal - City Bird
That random dude on stage with glasses is Joey Cordless. Writer, music lover, politician, student, man of the times.

Alex Kapranos is a sexy, sexy man.
I just thought I'd share that. Continue on with the discussion of actual music-related items.
Seconded about Kapranos... boy's looking good.
Also: MORE Final Fantasy?! My heart just stopped. And Mount Eerie on All Lovers' Day? Perfect.
