someone start the countdown

Almost every time I post, it's filled with announcements about shows that are 19+, meaning of course, that anyone under the age of majority can't attend. So, it's with great pleasure that I tell you about an upcoming show that only highschoolers can get into. In fact, you'll need to show your Go Card at the door to get in.

On Thursday, May 24th a bunch of Vancouver area schools are getting together to put on Urban Aid 2007 at the Jericho Hill Community Centre (5196 W.4th). Hosted by CBC Radio 3's Lauren Burrows, the night features the music of Hey Ocean!, Panurge, Vancougar, the Doers, Rio Bent, the RAF, Pernell Reichert, and Roddy MacIsaac, as well as two bands - Goodbye Enemy Airship and the Grammercy Riffs - that are culled from the organizing schools.

Tickets are $15 advance and $25 at the door and you can get all the details on where to get them at the event's Facebook group. If you're currently thinking "but I don't have facebook," you clearly aren't in highschool and shouldn't be creeping around at this event anyway, creep. All proceeds go to one of my favourite charitable organizations, Covenant House.

A quick note about door sales. Not only are they more expensive, but you have to an independent school student to buy at the door. Why? I have no idea. Apparently, it's some sort of school rule, which may be further proof that when you get adults involved in something they're bound to muck it up.

Yes, it's the same day as Arcade Fire, but it's also about 70% cheaper. And also not in Burnaby.

Thanks to Nigel for emailing me about the show.

Leeroy Stagger opens that Wil show that I mentioned yesterday.

One of my favourite blogs, Soul Sides is putting out it's second compilation CD and to celebrate, there's a whole wack of listening parties. Hennessey lounge plays host to Vancouver's on May 22nd. Unfortunately, O-Dub won't be in attendance.

Dudes, I'm totally going to see MCR and the Killers this weekend. I'm not even joking.

Oh, and happy birthday to Beyond Robson/Taxes' Sean Orr.

Fuck, that show sounds good. Thanks Quinn.

PS. I know you won't be able to on the 24th (hah!) but you really should check out Goodbye Enemy Airship.
