Long time, no posts. Sorry, I've been busy.
Bedouin Soundclash are going to try to play a rally for InSite again. This time Black Mountain are on the bill too. Goes down tomorrow at 4:30pm near Main and Hastings.
Weirdness goes down at the Biltmore on December 11th, featuring Sex Negatives, Juvie, Haunted Beard, and the resident Weirdness DJs.
Winning are at the Peanut Gallery on December 14th with Heals and Piers Whyte.
Fear of Tomorrow are at the Cobalt on December 16th with Grown Men and Healthy Students. The latter is Andy Dixon, Gregory Adams (both ex-Red Light Sting/currently in Winning among other things), Al Boyle, and Steve Matheson (both currently in Taxes among other things) playing hardcore punk. Awesome.
Speaking of Andy, another project of his called Make Love will be playing with Dixie's Death Pool at Grace Gallery on December 18th. After the bands, they're screening Rainbow War, which I remember fondly from Expo 86.
MSTRKRFT are at the Plaza on December 28th with Paul Devro. According to the Facebook event, "the Plaza is closing its doors for bigger and better things in 2009." I don't know what that means for live music, but if their idea of "bigger and better" follows the lead of the rest of the Granville strip, it probably won't be good.
The Clips won't be playing Glory Days on 27th. I'm sure a replacement band will be announced soon though.
And Gang Violence are also on the Monotonix/Twin Crystals bill at the Biltmore on the 29th, making an already great show even better.
now playing: Big Black - The Power of Independent Trucking

The Plaza renos are worth $1 million and their purpose is to make the room a better live music venue.

I know you're not a Hawksley Workman fan, but Chad VanGaalen is opening for him on February 27th at the Commodore.
