it hurts to see you dance so well

The Pipettes are the Plaza on June 15th. Break out your polka dot dresses and pseudo retro dance moves.

Circlesquare are playing at Open Studios on May 12th. I think I'll have some tickets to give away for this show in the next couple of days, so stay tuned.

Lauren, who promotes great shows over on the Island all the time, emailed me to let me know that she's putting on a show on the mainland in a couple of weeks. National Frost - all the way from Regina - are at the Lamp on May 14th.

Hot Chip are doing a DJ set at the Plaza after their show at the Commodore on June 19th.

Marnie Stern is scheduled to riff out at a venue tba on June 22nd.

Yacht opens the AiH show on June 14th.

DJ Ayres and Tittsworth are spinning at the Chapel on May 19th. (via Chalked Up)

Oh, and I'm in the new issue of Tooth and Dagger. I'm talking about that other website I do stuff for, not writing. Although, I might do the latter for them as well for forthcoming issues. Nepotism at its finest!

now playing: Cat Power - Fool

Hey Quinn, I dunno about that Hot Chip DJ set... but I do know that they'll be doing it up at Celebs alongside the LCD crew on May 4th.

Oh, and Interpol last night was bunk. They played for an hour, including a set break. I call bullshit!

The Hot Chip things up on SWAK... I was a bit surprised to, but apparently we get a double dose of Al Doyle's "turntablism."


An hour??? that's terrible.

Interpol played the same set they've played across Canada and I guess the same set they're playing at all the fests *shrug*

I'm gonna watch it again tomorrow night, too!

:D
