the earth is not a cold dead place

Over the last four or five years, I think I've seen Explosions in the Sky dates for Vancouver at least three times (on their official site, pollstar, and even their booking agent's site), and each time that date was removed. So maybe you'll want to take it with a grain of salt, but the band's scheduled for an all-ager at the Croation Cultural Centre on May 5th. In all seriousness, it's probably a sure thing, since they're actually selling tickets this time around - $25 at Zulu and Scratch.

!!! are at Richard's on May 4th. That'll be a hell of a week. (thanks to Dave for the heads up)

According to his MySpace, My!Gay!Husband! will spin at UBC's annual end-of-school-year party, Arts County Fair, again this year. Also according to his MySpace, he'll be joined on April 12th at TBird Stadium by Sam Roberts, Aaron Pritchett, Pride Tiger and one would presume, two more tba bands. It's all-ages again with the beer in the back.

Speaking of Pride Tiger, they were the perfect way to cap off an evening that I started off with many beers at my friend Josh's birthday. And it had been way too long since I'd been to a show at the Cobalt.

Speaking of My!Gay!Husband!, Half Alive (where he spins every Friday with Tyler Fedchuk and Tony X) is moving again. In what seems to be an ongoing quest to find the strangest possible venue, starting on March 30th, they'll be at Smiley O'Neals on Howe and Pender.

Zulu and the band's booking agency has Junior Boys listed as playing Richard's on April 22nd, but Ticketmaster still has the Klaxons at Dick's on that date. Your guess is as good as mine.

Chet (who are actually from Victoria) are at the Lamplighter with Shindig! winners Victoria, Victoria! on March 3rd.
The Choir Practice round out the bill.

Only's throwing a party for themselves. Mutators, No Feeling, and a "secret band" bring the noise at a benefit for everyone's favourite local once-a-fortnight magazine at the Emergency Room (Hastings and Hawks) on the same night. That's one busy evening.

I've been blogging here for two years, last Tuesday. Thanks for reading.

thanks for coming for beers. things headed up after you left, and many good songs were danced to by many attractive women.

who the shit is Aaron Pritchett, and why is he the 2nd headliner at ACF? I'm confused.

feist may 16 orpheum

aaron pritchett is a canadian country act...sold out the commodore....

and he won't be the 2nd headliner...he will be the middle band most likely

seems longer than 2 years! (in a good way)

Man....Feist at the Orpheum...NUTS. I remember seeing her at Richards and it wasn't even full.

thanks for the kind words, guys (and girl)...

and Sean: not only was it half full, but if you recall it was presented by the city's "finest" adult-con, easy listening station.
