So, after having the plug pulled on the venue and apparently almost losing their headliner, the Beyond Robson post-election soiree finally did go off at the Peanut Gallery on Saturday.

Women had some technical difficulties near the beginning of their set, but once they got rolling they sounded pretty good. The sound was way cleaner last time they were here (at Hoko's), but they played a bunch of new songs on Saturday, which were nice to hear. The new material isn't a far cry from the songs off of their self-titled debut, but that's definitely not a bad thing.

The Clips, who may have played one of their last shows for awhile (Brasstronaut got a residency at the Banff Centre, so Edo will be out of town for 6 months or so - congrats, guys), came on before Women. The band practices in the Peanut Gallery, but I think this might have been the first time they'd ever played there. It was nice to see them on their home turf, especially if they aren't back there for awhile now.

As a Clips related aside, check out these photos by Chris Wang of their recent video shoot.

I got to the venue in time to catch the end of Gang Violence's set. They were pretty good to begin with and they're getting better every time I see them.

During Hot Panda and the Bicycles I was hanging in the back. I'm not overly fond of either band, honestly.

Tomorrow (Thursday, in case you're reading this tomorrow), Hard Feelings play with Golden Touch at Honey.

On Saturday, Fine Mist, Trembling, and SSRIs play at Casa del Artista. After the bands Mikey from the Barcelona Chair is spinning tunes. Admission is by donation and all proceeds go to Amnesty International and the Kuong Kyaw Refugee Camp on the Thailand-Burma border.

The same night, Elizabeth, Adjective, and Sex Attack are at the Peanut Gallery.

On November 27th, the aforementioned Barcelona Chair open for Assertion at Pat's.

On the 29th, Haggatha is at the Sweatshop with V. Vecker, Set Sail to Sea, and Leviathans.

The Sweatshop hosts another displaced ER show (someone called the cops on them) on December 4th with Wet Hair, Peaking Lights, Temptation, and Aerosol Constellations.

The next night, Mattress plays the Railway with the Doers, Shearing Pinx, Stamina Mantis, and gr8-2000. It's Shawn from the Doers' last show with the band.

Spiral Stairs (ex-Pavement) is at the Biltmore with Ian Moore on December 17th.

Matt & Kim are at the Biltmore on January 28th.

Lykke Li returns to play an even bigger venue (the Commodore) on February 11th.

And, Barr is off the bill at Richard's tomorrow night.

now playing: Marnie Stern - the Crippled Jazzer
