perhaps vampires is a bit strong but...

Arctic Monkeys are at the Commodore on May 4th. Although they were one of the highlights of Sasquatch last year, I wasn't really down with shelling out $35 + charges to see them again. Well, I'm still not down, but I'll begrudgingly pony up the cash because Be Your Own Pet is opening.

Interpol is at the Commodore on April 25th. (thanks to Ryan for the headsup and to the anonymous tipster who corrected the date).

Tickets for both of the above go on sale on Friday at 10am.

Kidz By Colette has the details about (and some mp3s from) the upcoming Teki Latex album. If you're not into to the French hip-hop, you might still be interested in noting that Bitch Lap Lap guests on track 11. And you also might be interested to note that Bitch Lap Lap is the alter ego of Leslie Feist. It got my attention, anyhow. That Spank Rock remix of "Disco Dance With You" that features Amanda Blank is pretty massive too.

Finally, if you haven't already checked it out, you should head over to Vice TV. There's the usual Vice stuff that you probably either love or hate, but they also have some pretty great interviews up, as well as some legitimate news pieces that are really well put together. And, of course, plenty of music content. Rory from Vice emailed to let me know about an Andrew WK interview they have up (because of the talk/dj session announcement), but I was more drawn to the Ian McKaye interview. There's a pretty decent set of episodes on the Sudan as well. Shane Smith isn't Seymour Hersh or anything, but the series held my interest for all five episodes. And, to top it off, the quality is ace for streaming video.

edit: Apparently Daft Punk tix for Seattle are on sale on March 24th. I have no idea where yet, but if anyone has the lowdown, do tell... please.

now playing: Amanda Blank - Get Um Girl

I know you don't do presales, Quinn, but maybe some of your readership will...there's an hob.ca presale on for Interpol right now, till I think Thurs. a.m.? 2 tix came to $74 incl. s/c <_<

(I can't say no, that's my problem)

Minx: Do you have the presale password?

Uh, I went through a link from an HOB email, and no p/w was required.

email me at theminx at gmail.com and I will forward you the mail if you like :)

For Daft Punk, the info is all on Ticketmaster.com. There is a Internet Presale starting in three days. Any chance on how I can get in on that? $40USD isn't so bad.
