no flashlight

Thanks to Lindsay, who coincidentally asked me how long I'd been blogging for and inadvertently reminded me that the answer is three years today. Thanks for reading, for all the kind words, and especially the really outraged angry words. The latter always make me giggle. Here's to three years of typos, comma faults, and unintentional misinformation.

But enough about that, let's get down to business, because there is a lot of exciting business to attend to.

Jay from International Falls emailed to let everyone know that he's organizing a show at Hoko's on April 5th, that's cheekily been dubbed Edgefest. No Hole and Moist (who - I think - played the last actual touring edition of Edgefest), but the show features the Blankett, Don L'Orange (from the Doers), Candles, International Falls, Joel Tong, Mt. Eerie, No Gold, and Octoberman.

Keeping it local, the March 7th Mohawk Lodge show (that was previously some other date) no longer features Pride Tiger. It's back to a Mohawk lodge headlining affair with Bend Sinister (who are going to record a full-length soon) and Japandroids (who are writing songs for a full-length right now).

Japandroids also rock the Cobalt on April 4th with Baby Control and Taxes.

Half Alive is bringing San Serac and Fluo Kids to Richard's this Friday.

They also loved the Teenagers so much last time, that they're bringing them back on April 18th.

DJ Mehdi is at Caprice on March 12th. Local boy, Rico Uno, supports.

Handsome Furs are at Richard's on April 21st.

Zach Condon makes his first visit to Vancouver on May 22nd when Beirut plays the Ballroom. (note: real close to Sasquatch)

El Perro Del Mar is at the Red Room on May 14th with Lykke Li and Anna Ternheim. More Swedes than a Canucks power play.

Some great shows are coming to the Astoria (in addition to the ones that have already been announced):

Johnny and the Moon play with E.S.L., Listening Party, and Catamaran on February 29th.

July 4th Toilet play with Shearing Pinx, and Ice Cream on March 8th.

The 21st marks the March edition of Better Than Loneliness.

The Clips and Woodhands play on April 14th.

And Alphababy and Jon Rae Fletcher (with the River? sans the River?) play on May 10th.

Last, but not least, congrats to Evan, who is going to see Josh Ritter for free on Saturday. Thanks to Annie from Josh's management co for hooking up the prize.

Yes, well done.

PS I'm pretty sure that Basketball (Balls as I think they are calling their noisy set- Basket for a new set of gypsy songs they're doing) are playing at the April 4th Cobalt show....
