On Friday, I made it out to the Biltmore for the last Mohawk Lodge show in Vancouver for awhile (Ryder's moving to TO). The current incarnation of the band were also playing for the last time, but there was celebratory mood in the air for what turned out to be a great set. I hope you'll join me in wishing Ryder all the best out East.
Poorfolk opened up. Their music seems indebted to a lot of the same things that the Mohawk Lodge's is, which wasn't the worst thing that could have happened. They did a rad cover of Guided By Voices' "Motor Away."
Those Japandroids guys opened up. They played a pretty good chunk of their new record, which should be out "soon."
Bob Dylan is at GM Place on October 24th. The cheapest seats are $45 and apparently the balcony is closed... not too bad, considering. Tix go on sale this Friday.
This Friday at the Western Front Fake Jazz Wednesdays presents Fake Jazz Friday.
