over and over and over again
So, I may have forgotten a show that actually went off without a hitch, but have Hot Chip actually ever made any of the previously scheduled dates that they've had here? Either way, hopefully they actually make it to the Commodore to play on April 21st. Free Blood open. Right now SWAK is listing "First Blood" as the opener... which would be sort of hilariously awesome, really.
The Evaporators have a couple of all-agers coming up, and one of them is free. They're doing an in-store at the downtown HMV on January 25th, and they'll be at Seylynn Hall in North Van the next night with the B-Lines, the Elixxxirs, and lala.
The Hives will attempt to remind you that they do indeed exist when they rock the Commodore on February 22nd.
British Sea Power are at the Plaza on March 5th.
The Raveonettes are at the Plaza on March 8th.
Apparently, enough people like godawful, atonal, noise for CocoRosie to play the Commodore on March 24th. I take that back. I actually enjoy godawful, atonal, noise, and I hate this shit.
Justice returns to the Commodore on March 25th. You may recall this show selling out ridiculously fast last time... and it's not like they've gotten less popular since then. Edit: and they'll have Fancy and a guy named Diplo in tow.
Born Ruffians are at the Media Club on March 26th.
Vampire Weekend are at Richard's on March 27th.
Why? is at the Media Club on April 16th.
Blitzen Trapper are at the Media Club the next night.
Caribou are at the Biltmore on April 18th.
Oh, and you should've been at the Clips/Adjective./Terrorbird show on Saturday. The Clips were their usually wonderful selves. I don't really have much to say about them that I haven't said already, but I will note that my friend Neil had never seen them before Saturday, and by the end of the set he wanted to book them for a show.
Hot Chip opened for Stereolab at the Commodore in '06. Banks of synths and four guys manning the keys produced monstrous sounds. After those cxlations i've been steadily ready for the floor (baboom)
I refuse to believe that The Hives still exist, it's just too depressing.
yay for British Sea Power returning. The Decline of British Sea Power is high one of the few 2003 albums I still listen to often
i had never seen/heard the clips or terrorbird before saturday.
i am more fond of terrorbird; i was pleasantly surprised, as i (wrongly) assumed they were going to be like all of the other ER-type bands. i like about 1/3 of the bands that are associated with that scene.
the clips were also great, and it was an enjoyable evening all around.

space kidz -> kassel -> 2nd hand deal. doesn't get any better.
did you see my comment a couple posts back about faun fables? they play the western front feb. 1st.
i am super stoked about this spring lineup. justice, diplo, born ruffians, and vampire weekend. oh, and yeasayer, atlas sound, crystal castles, black mountain. it's like we're a real city!
don't forget about CocoRosie's racism!
Any news on when Justice, or Hot Chip tickets will be on sale?
Its okay. I often wonder why i have cocorosie on my ipod then i play one song. First minute: Instant clarification, then i wonder why i haven't deleted them off my computer.
Yay! on the Justice announcement!
I've said it before and I'll say it right now: The Hives are one of the most underrated bands in modern rock history.
hehe... Modern Rock.

the hives - untutored youth.
i'd go if there was guarantee of hearing that song.
