the get away

When Pretty Girls Make Graves made the announcement that their upcoming tour would be their last, I found it a bit odd that they weren't ending things in their hometown. Luckily, they've since added a final farewell gig at Neumo's in Seattle on June 9th. I'll be honest, despite the fact that Good Health still ranks pretty highly amongst my favourite records, I haven't really found much to cheer about since the New Romance. If you'd like to make the trip down the I5 for the band's last show however, you can grab tickets here for a mere $17USD including all charges (password = "kexp"). (thanks to Peter for the headsup)

Keeping with the theme of out of town concerts, Clinic has been added to Sunday at Sasquatch.

Closer to home, Joel Plaskett plays the Commodore on May 18th with Peter Elkas.

Cut Chemist is at the Plaza on April 4th.

Frank has the initial acts for the TO version of VFest. They get Bjork, Interpol, Amy Winehouse, and a reunited Smashing Pumpkins (which could be awesome in a train wreck kind of way). In Vancouver we're stuck with My Chemical Romance, Billy Talent, AFI, and Rise Against (note to organizers: Warped Tour is already coming here). This is the kind of thing that fuels Western alienation.

And finally, am I the only person who saw that Tim McGraw and Faith Hill are billing their new tour as "Soul 2 Soul" and thought "back to life... back to reality?" Probably.

now playing: Public Enemy - 911 is a Joke

hehe the Soul 2 Soul line made me laugh.

I wonder if Joel Plaskett will play Kelowna.

I'm glad somebody got it... Kelowna? did you move or something?

By Blogger Quinn, at 4:17 p.m.  

hehe no. listen to Joel Plaskett - Love This Town :)

By Blogger Pinder, at 4:54 p.m.  

Okay... they get Bjork, and we get MCR???

Think of Sasquatch as the real V Fest or something...

VFest is terrible. I'm gonna punch Richard Branson in the throat.

Just before Bjork hits up Sasquatch she's performing at Deer Lake.

Wait, wait wait

Let me add to that: tix? when/how much, if you know?

Just got it from pitchfork:

Interesting interview about working with Timbaland.

Apparently presale begins on Mar. 28 here: http://unit.bjork.com/presale/

If I wasn't going to Sasquatch I'd be all over this.
