it starts with an earthquake

R.E.M. hits Deer Lake Park on May 23rd with Modest Mouse and the National. If you check out the full list of tour dates on REM's site, you might notice that they have a six day break starting on May 24th, which is the first day of the Sasquatch Festival, which already has the Cure booked as it's May 25th headliner.

This one is way in advance for a local gig, but I'm pretty psyched that White Lung are back in action soon(ish). They play the Astoria with CPC Gangbangs and Cheerleader Camp on May 30th. I don't know who is headlining right now, but I'm sure that will get sorted out in the next four months.

Fanshaw's opening set at the Cave Singers show on Thursday, and it'll be the "last Fanshaw show ever." I haven't asked Liv why, but needless to say, you might want to make the extra effort to head down to the Media Club now. (and it was Laura who gave me the heads up on that... and this next one. Thanks.)

Chris Smither is at St. James Hall this Thursday as well.

South Rakkas Crew guests at 1/2 Alive on February 15th. At Richard's, as usual.

Saul Williams is at the Plaza on March 17th.

And... Midnight Juggernauts are at Richard's on April 22nd. Mad respect to anyone who can survive the Hot Chip/Juggernauts/SMD back-to-back-to-back.

according to their myspace, bodies of water --> 4 Apr 2008 20:00 Richards On Richards w/ Sons And Daughters Vancouver, British Columbia

the word on fanshaw is that liv wants to make it a solo/recording project with a rotating support cast and not play live anymore. her and johnny payne are apparently forming a new band, with shared songwriting duties, that will perform live.

Chromeo is listed as 3/3 on your left column, a typo. (I know you know your stuff.)
