if we get lucky, we'll be dead by dawn













Sorry, I've been busy. But that's the blog-relevant stuff that I got up to last weekend. Not enough people came out to see Rollie, but he and Weez-l still killed it... dude covered "Pink Triangle!"

You ever not feel like going out, but then end up staying out later than usual, and drinking more than you usually would on a weekday? Well, that's what I did last night, so I'm going to leave the music writing at that. Stuff on Shindig! later today or tomorrow morning, but a big congratulations to Liv and the rest of the Fanshaw gang! Hopefully, she bucks the infamous Shindig! curse. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Johnny (from Fanshaw and Victoria, Victoria!) is the first consecutive double winner of the contest.

The 15th of December is even more busy now that the Clips are hosting a show at Casa Del Artista with Hats of Gentlemen, Terminal Cafe, Canaries, and Steamship. Unlike the JPNDRDS extravaganza or the Mint Rec Xmas, the Clips guys are doing it for the kids - it's an all-ager.

You Say Party! We Say Die! is at the Plaza on January 24th with Fake Shark - Real Zombie and Taxes. Sean Orr just hooked me up with the Taxes EP, so look for some words on that soon.

MSTRKRFT is at Celebs on December 28th. Paul D. spins before the dudes with the masks and moustaches.

New Year's Day is a big deal for Japanese people, and while I'd hardly call my family "Japanese," much less traditional, that means that for as long as I could sneak alcohol, I have still had to be home by noon on January 1st, showered, awake, and halfway presentable for lunch... so I sorta hate New Year's Eve. But here are a couple parties going on:

At the Balmoral some of the Salbourg guys and Crooks & Gunn will spin Vancouver's usual hipster faves, but Justin from Mutators will balance that out with what will undoubtedly be a the odd set out (that's a good thing) when he gets behind the decks. Party goes until 4am.

The Ice Cream Social is doing a special NYE edition. Tyler's out of town, but Mike from ChalkedUp is making a guest appearance. Shine's letting them out of the back room, so there'll be some more room to dance. Party goes til 3am.

Oh, and in case you missed it everywhere else, there's a new Destroyer track floating around... use teh googlez for that. It's seriously everywhere.
