what a waste

Only has their Music Waste Guide up. It is written in the traditional Only Music Waste Guide style and contains flashes of comic brilliance like this:
Taxes 10:50-11:20
Bring an icepack this year, you persistent fuck.
The best part is that the Guide has set times attached, so now you can organize your venue hopping. It looks like I'll be running nervously around the DTES like a tourist who took a wrong turn at Carrall trying to see everyone I want to see on Friday night. If you want more fawning and less sarcasm, check out Streethawk's picks for the festival.

Matt & Kim is canceled tomorrow night. They promise to make up the date (as well as PDX and Seattle) later in the Summer. Luke, now you can come to CSS... or if you're really bummed out about it, put on your copy of Bring it Back and pretend it's sloppily executed.
edit: the show has been rescheduled for August 23rd at Pat's. Tix for tomorrow will be honoured at the new show. Presumably you can also get a refund at your point of purchase if you can't make it.

Why wasn't Sarah Silverman this funny at Sasquatch?... or remotely funny at all at Sasquatch?

The Marnie Stern show on June 22nd is at Pat's. They're looking for a pair of openers, so if you have a band and won't be shown up by her ax wielding, get in contact with Fireball Productions.

If you're a massive M. Ward fan (like super massive and potentially obsessive), you might be interested to know that he opens up for Norah Jones on June 28th at the Orpheum.

Wilco explains why they licensed songs off of Sky Blue Sky to VW. Did they really have to explain this? Most of the people who complain about this type of thing probably stole the record off of the internet anyhow.

now playing: Of Montreal - Wrath Pinned to the... Outback Steakhouse!

Hey Quinn. I was just checking the Sealed with a Kiss site and i just freaked out! Wolf Parade has announced their show on September 7th @ Richards. I don't know if you are a fan. If not, its still a date that will excite many...

I have heard... and I was thinking the same thing as Shea. It sold out like a week or so before and there was a line up of people trying to get tix the night of.
