saturday night's alright

So, as Steve noted in the comments of the last post, sometime between the end of Ballz' set and when No Gold were supposed to start playing last Saturday a rather large fight broke out at the Peanut Gallery. I don't what the future holds, but the show that was supposed to be there this weekend (Role Mach, Boogie Monster, gr8-2000, and Type to Talk) has been moved to the Sweatshop.

But before that, also at the Sweatshop, Ballz and No Gold get a chance to perform again tomorrow night(Friday), hopefully without the fisticuffs this time. Fine Mist (feat. members of International Falls), V. Vecker, Sorcerers, and Twin Crystals round out a bill that's sure to be awesome.

Also tomorrow, Mark Berube & the Patriotic Few are at the Biltmore with Dan Mangan.

Lady Dottie and the Diamonds are at Pat's on October 29th with the TVees.

The TVees also open, along with thee Manipulators and Hard Feelings, for the Fucking Eagles, who are at the Sweatshop on November 15th.

The Awkward Stage are at the Biltmore with Dylan Thomas on November 8th.

And Two Hours Traffic are at the Biltmore on November 14th with Hey Rosetta! and the Danks.

now playing: Attack in Black - Ever Bright, Ever Blue

Hey, do you have any insight in to what happened with the free concert in support of Insite? (Awful pun REALLY not intentional.)

they didn't get the right permits to host the event (i.e. - serving food/food safe, closing a portion of the road for traffic, etc.). It was apparently admittedly organized last minute and Bedouin expressed their interest last minute so the timing for permits didn't work out. But they tried anyway.

Does anyone know if any reason was ever given for the crystal castles cancellation? not that it would make it any better...

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1:52 PM  

I believe Crystal Castles canceled their Vancouver date in order to record some demos for their next album

Quinn-- got some shows for ya.
