Alright... let's play some catch up.

The Clips are at the AstoriaPat's (I can't read - thanks, Andrew) on January 5th with Adjective. and Terrorbird.

Fake Jazz Wednesdays are expanding to Fake Jazz Friday at the Western Front on January 11th.

Those Lindsays are having a party on January 12th at No Tofu Studios with DJ Skeet Skeet where people will get their picture taken, and then those pictures will be put on the internet, and then there will be a overblown flame war when people complain about parties with pictures and pictures on the internet.

My friend Neil is spinning at Better Than Loneliness at the Astoria on January 18th. They do it every 3rd Friday of the month, but Erin (who runs it) got me a birthday cake last month, which means I'm obligated to shout it out now, no? Neil promises more classic (like, DKs!) punk and also that he will play me some Motown. Every other night should also adopt this playlist alteration.

Copperspine Records is having a soiree at the Media Club on January 24th that features damn near all of their roster, which includes personal faves Roger Dean Young & the Tin Cup and the Abramson Singers.

Tranzmitors are at the Chapel with Petroleum By-Products and the Manipulators on January 19th.

The By-Products also play with Culte du Cargo and Adjective. on February 2nd at the Astoria.

Stamina Mantis are at the Astoria on January 19th with B-Lines, Nu Sensae, and Stuffed Animals.

Isolalted Now Waves throwing a party at the Emergency Room on January 26th with Shearing Pinx, Modern Creatures, N213, Jesse Taylor... and more(!) to be announced.

And, in response to the comment from the last post, I think I posted about the Feist/Ron Sexsmith show, but apparently neglected to throw it in the listings. Thanks for the reminder... although, I think I'll just leave it out, because it's stupidly overpriced, sold out, and will be full of 2010 hacks. Boo-urns.

I'm sure I forgot some other stuff, but I'll hopefully recall that later.

On a side note, I received an iTunes gift certificate for Xmas. I don't really want to get albums that are available on vinyl/cds, since I like buying those, but does anyone have any suggestions when it comes to those iTunes exclusive EPs? I already have the Cat Power and Yeah Yeah Yeahs ones. Please and thanks.

Have a safe and happy new year. See you in 2008.

Thanks for clarifying that Feist show Quinn. If it's affiliated with 2010 I wouldn't have been interested in going much anyhow :)

you could also grab the music videos. best experienced on one of the flashy new generation iPods of course...

CBC Radio 3 put out a "best of live performances" album this fall on iTunes. It's pretty good.

hey dude

do you want to put the word out that the ssris have suffered from the shindig curse, and have lost a member? we are currently looking for someone to play drums/collaborate with us. if you want to put out the word, that'd be rad.
