that's my dj

Girl Talk hits Richard's on June 9th for a night of ritalin fueled bastard pop that will no doubt culminate in Greg Gillis taking his shirt off and inviting half the crowd on stage.

Electrelane are at Richard's on May 27th with the Blow. I haven't really checked out Electrelane (that is, until right this second), but the openers have me excited enough.

The Ponys are at Richard's on April 11th with Deerhunter

Calla are at the Media Club on April 2nd.

Silversun Pickups are at Richard's on April 12th.

Keren Ann is at the Media Club on June 13th.

Lyrics Born is at Richard's on March 4th with the Coup. This just made me realize that I have no idea where my copy of Party Music is.

The Hella show is March 4th, not the 3rd. Apologies for any confusion.

McLean's has a music blog featuring Paul Wells, Adam Radwanski, Dafna Izenberg and Aaron Wherry. I'm not familiar with this Dafna character, but I'm curious about Wells' music tastes.

Congratulations go out to Jenny from Vancouver, Evan from Vancouver, and Evan from Chilliwack, who can all expect a pretty looking k-os 12" in the mail soon.

For the record, Jenny's favourite rebellion is the Arcade Fire's (clever) and her favourite fictional locale is Asteroid B612 (where Le Petit Prince
resides, with his three volcanoes and his beloved rose). Evan from Van's are the New York Revolt of 1712 and Amaterasu. And Evan from Chilliwack's favourite rebellion is the 1837 rebellion involving Upper and Lower Canada.

In addition to getting some sweet vinyl into people's hands for free, this contest also forced me to look up about a dozen rebellions and a couple dozen fictional places. Learning and giving!

If you missed out, you're SOL on the picture disc, but you can grab the four songs by picking up Atlantis: Hymns for Disco pretty much anywhere that sells music. Thanks to EMI for providing the prize.

And finally, if for some reason you haven't seen this, you should check out this video of the Arcade Fire doing a very special rendition of "Wake Up."

now playing: Lucinda Williams - Mama You Sweet

Electrelane is awesome. The Power Out is a fantastic pop album, Axes is darker and almost menacing.

Those are some sweet show announcements Quinn! Thanks for the heads-up...

Menomena tomorrow night?

MACLEANS!!

Proper spelling of (albeit lousy) Canadian icons, please!

Is it a blog if you can't comment? I dont' understand McLeans foray into blogging, but if you can't comment on their musings, then I think it is a silly exercise.

Pinder: I streamed some Electrelane, they are indeed pretty sweet.

Chris: as soon as the hockey game is over i'm heading to Pat's

Luisa: meh

Robert: When it comes to larger blogs, I don't know if I blame them for disabling commenting. If you take a look at Brooklyn Vegan or Stereogum or even the Stylus article comments, a lot of it is people just being assholes. Thankfully, this blog isn't close to being big enough to have such problems.

Wells' taste is pretty much all jazz...he talks about it occasionally already, and I can only think of one or two times he's ventured outside of that genre...
