your light is spent

It was supposed to be open until Wednesday, but tomorrow (or technically, tonight - Tuesday) is now the evening of the last show at the Lamplighter. Rich Hope, Elias, Odd Child, and Reid play out the venues final hours. I can't say that it's my first choice for a final line-up, but the show was already booked before the plug was unceremoniously pulled. Last chance to dance... or stand with your arms crossed nodding politely.

Update: Sex Attack are spinning tunes along with the aforementioned bands tonight. Truly, the last chance to dance.

The Earlimart and Bonobo shows that were originally scheduled for the Lamp are now at the Pit Pub on the same dates. Tickets for the original Lamplighter shows will be honoured at the door.

Baby Control are at Japantown Studios (382 Powell St. - a couple doors down from Hoko's) on August 25th. Animal Names and Dad MusicSmall Fame (feat. Dan from Bend Sinister) open.

Also on August 25th, Dandi Wind play a homecoming show at Salbourg at the Royal Unicorn. They aren't playing the same night Crookers are spinning (although that would be sort of awesome). Crookers in on Sunday, and apparently I can't read properly.

Trentemoeller are at the Plaza on October 3rd. (thanks William)

IFC.com is streaming trapped in the closet ahead of it's August 21st release date. They're doing one new chapter a day, complete with R. Kelly's commentary before each chapter. The first two are already up.

now playing: Sam Cooke - Another Saturday Night

hey buddy, eric aka tekamafo here

how's it going? i see that you visited Edmonton not long ago. i'm not big on Hot Panda. we've played with them.

Anyways is the Blood Brothers show in Vancouver really cancelled? that
sucks. they probably put on my favourite show last year in edmonton.

Anyhow if indeed it somehow is, would you be interested in coming out to a show some of my label's bands are playing that same night? Portraits and Hills
Like White Elephants (+ some other awesome bands like Love and
Mathematics - i saw them at Hokos not long ago and they were grand)

I'm playing guitar with Portraits right now, it's kind of a Broken
Social Scene thing where there's like 8 of us, mostly from different
bands you can check out the mp3s here:
