let the iron in your heart's blood ring

So, as a few people have kindly mentioned in the comments, Wolf Parade is at the Commodore on July 12th. As Camillia kindly mentioned, you can grab pre-sale tix right here: http://wolfparade.ducatking.com. Alternately, SWAK points out that you can get them at Zulu and Ticketmaster on Friday morning. The odd thing is that the pre-sale link says that the show is all-ages... which, as far as I know, would be a first for an evening show at the Ballroom.

Also on sale Friday (but with no presale and definitely not all-ages) are tickets for Boris at Richard's on July 30th. Torche supports. Smile isn't as good as Pink, but this news still brings to mind the words "fuck" and "yes."

Tilly and the Wall are at Richard's on July 4th.

The Dodos are at the Bourbon on June 26th... but if you're not in Calgary that day like me and apparently half the bands in this city, you should really go see the Cons.

The Awkward Stage is at the Biltmore on June 13th to celebrate the release of their next record, Slimming Mirrors, Flattering Lights. Mint's got an mp3 for you:

i saw a gig at the old commodore in 1995 that was an all ages evening gig (our lady peace with tripping daisy). but i think the liquor laws were different back then.

The ducat king presale is for will-call. I have read some people have had trouble with ducat king willcall before at other venues with other bands. Anyone know for sure if its solid?

Anon, i would just wait until the ticketmaster sale on the 9th. It won't sell out in the first hours but perhaps a day or two. I have no doubts if you purchase it on the 9th you will have a ticket. This will avoid the uncertainty of this other ticket reseller. At least this is what i thought. I needed to know it was on sale ticketmaster. Its also on sale at Zulu if you were wondering.
