my generation dot com

Since there aren't already a bunch of potentially great things happening on that night, Beyond Robson, Parliament of Owls, and all those other places that get Sean to do stuff are presenting the Megalomania Cafe (aka Sean-Orr-ama) this Saturday at the Lighthouse (165 E. Hastings). Taxes and Saint Just Vigilantes are playing, and (I think) those ChalkedUp guys are going to spin some tunes. Tooth & Dagger is also hosting a lecture-oke as part of the event, and there will be art by Jenny Smyth, Heather Emery, Chris Williams, Sean Orr, and others on display. Four bucks gets you in.

Also this weekend, if you're looking for somewhere to dance that isn't 1/2 Alive or Mod Club, you can head down to the Columbia for Plan B, which is now happening every second Friday (I think). Music by these guys. Cover is $5.

Sex Attack! is spinning at the Royal Unicorn on October 4th. Culte du Cargo, Nihlist Party, and Davidsmind round out the bill.

In non-local news...

Sondre Lerche is at the Red Room on November 7th.

Alejandro Escovedo is at Pat's on November 17th.

Juliette and the Licks are at Richard's for an early show on November 23rd with Scissors for Lefty and Suffrajett. According to the press release, the former are "special guests," but the latter or merely "guests." Poor Suffrajett.

And to add to yesterday's contest winners announcement, here's Jade's joke and Ryan's favourite "old rave" song respectively:

Knock Knock
Who's There?
Interupting cow
Interupting co-MOOOOO

Evil Homer - "Interrupt Vector"

Y'know, in case you were curious.



hey, that was my joke too. :|

and one other person too... it was a popular joke.

By Blogger Quinn, at 10:58 p.m.  

could everyone stop saying that these sex attack idiots are "DJs" and are "spinning"? its offensive to anyone who really DJs... pushing play in traktor doesn't mean you can call yourself a "DJ".. it means you've mastered a toy you can download for free on any torrent site.

Hey! So the roof caved in on my plans, literally. The place that I was going to throw the party has a bad roof and could collapse. Party postponed!!!!

By Anonymous Sean Orr, at 11:58 p.m.  

hey dude, we're not actually playing the unicorn on oct 4th.
they booked us without us confirming. we're putting on a warehouse party at frank's on franklin on oct 6th though.

and after the anonymous poster above opened my eyes, i'd like you to refer to us as FTJs (free toy jockeys), or perhaps BJs (button jockeys). that one sounds a bit too suggestive though. thank you for your insight.

...but calling us idiots, now that's just mean!

By Blogger dustin., at 9:28 p.m.  

wait. i've got a better one. it sums it up perfectly.

please from now on, replace the word "spinning" with "partying".

thanks bro.

it might be "ironic" or "funny" for you to drag DJing through the mud for your own self aggrandizing agenda, but the joke's on you

but keep on with your abrasive persona buddy. don't cry when you have to keep picking your teeth up off the ground

By Anonymous Papa, at 11:08 p.m.  

how exactly is the joke on him? the only thing that's sort of funny is that someone would get so bent out of shape over playing other people's music.

By Blogger Quinn, at 2:12 a.m.  

the teeth comment is really rough. seriously. i've spent the past month blending my meals.

we're just having fun man. we're not trying to disrespect the sacred ancient art form known as djing.

papa, i respect everyone having their own opinion, but i don't understand where your hate is stemming from.

for your information, i am in fact saving up for a serato system. i hope that using that computer program, rather than the computer program i am currently using, will help to gain your respect in the elite dj critic community.
