we will always be like little kids
Are you underage/FakeIDless and bummed that you can't see Emily Haines? Well, you can send your name, age, and email address to emilytickets @ lastgangrecords.com (with the Subject line: "Sound check Vancouver") and you'll be entered to win a pair of passes to check out the Metric Miss and her Soft Skeletons when they soundcheck before their January 18th show at the Commodore. Emily Haines is for the children. Sorry adults, this one's for underagers only.
Salon de Bourgeoisie is moving. I have no idea why, but I presume it may be so it's closer to the after hours that they run. This week is still at the Biltmore, but starting next week, festivities will take place at the Royal Unicorn Cabaret in Chinatown. In celebration of the new digs (or just because), Dandi Wind, Twin Crystals, and Fake Shark Real Zombie are playing the 16th. I haven't checked the night out yet, but I presume it's like the Columbia was on Saturdays?
Pete Yorn is at the Commodore on February 8th.
Badly Drawn Boy is at Richard's on March 3rd.
The Roots are back at the Commodore on February 2nd.
If you're willing to head down to Seattle on Saturday (Dec. 9th) and wait in the cold for an evening, you can check out Lily Allen at the Crocodile Cafe for free. Doors are at 8pm and it's one of those first come, first served MySpace Secret Shows.
Matthew has a live set that Cadence Weapon did at the Halifax Pop Explosion up at I (Heart) Music.
Congratulations to Victoria, Victoria!, who won this year's edition of Shindig. Of the six bands I saw this year they were my favourite. Though perhaps, if you believe in curses, congratulations should go out to Organ Trail who came in second.
Finally, I rarely talk hockey (mostly because there's not a whole lot to talk about for Canuck fans this season), but I would like to encourage you to vote for Rory.
now playing: the Rolling Stones - Rip This Joint
Canucks suck. But I still voted for Rory.
