party party hand cramp

I forgot all about this show, until my friend Matt asked me if I was going. Apologies for not mentioning it earlier, because it's going to be killer. So, if you're not doing anything tonight and you like getting your face rocked off, you might want to head down to the Cobalt to check out Fake Shark Real Zombie, Cheerleader Camp, Canaries, White Lung, and Suspiria.

Word out of the long dormant Nasty On camp is that their long shelved record, Squid, is finally getting a release. It'll be a vinyl-only affair and the details are forthcoming, but the fact that it's coming out at all is enough to get me excited. I never thought that their recorded material did justice to their performances, but the songs they have streaming on their MySpace hint that this album might actually live up to the live show. I'm still sort of kicking myself for missing their last show.

PFork reports that Elevation Recordings (which is co-run by Boyd Devereaux) will release a limited-to-500-copies EP by Blood Meridian. It's also a vinyl-only release, and they hope to have some to sell when Black Mountain plays a hometown gig this November. This record label is probably the best thing to come from a Maple Leaf since... Tim Horton's?

Keeping it local, if you haven't peeped it already, head over to the Mad Decent Blog to check out the mix that Paul Devro did for XLR8R: here

Ween is at the Queen E on November 14th. I guess they figure this strike will actually be over by then. (thanks Matt)

Also on November 14th, Cuff the Duke are at Richard's with one of my favourite bands, Land of Talk.

And finally, ChalkedUp relaunched. I wrote about Japandroids for the feature there this week, and they're giving away the Tough Alliance EP, which is pretty friggin' sick.

now playing: GZA - Liquid Swords

Any clues where Flaming Lips will be moved to (assuming the strike continues till the 18th)? We got some prime row 3 seats that I will truly be distressed if it moves to the Commodore...

I think it depends on how many seats they've sold. If it's more than 1000, they can't move it to the Commodore. On the other hand, if it's over 1000, the options might be worse.

I hear you Cy - same boat. I notice that the Centre isn't booked that night, holds closer to 1900 I think. Not that it's ideal.
