police and thieves



So, as Jonny mentioned in the comments a couple of posts back, the ER show this past Saturday was, in addition to being their 2nd anniversary, also the last show in the space. I was asked not to make a big deal out of that fact, which is why I didn't post it on the main page after he kindly commented about it.



Unfortunately, the cops weren't as pysched about the party as the loads of people who showed up.

I made it down around 11:30pm and had missed No Gold, which was a bummer. Although, it wasn't as disappointing as finding out that they announced that it would be their last time performing together. I talked to Liam briefly and he mentioned other projects to come though.

I did catch White Owl and Sex Negatives before the place got shut down. It was disappointing that so many other great bands didn't get a chance to do their thing there one more time, but it was great that Justin, who took the lead in keeping the place running for the last two years, had one more go behind the kit that night.

A big thank you to him, the bands, and everyone else who made the ER what it was: one of my favourite places to see live music in this city.

Ryan Walter Wagner has a couple of much nicer pics up on his flickr.

Speaking of Ryan, his new band Tight Solid, which also features Burnside (ex-Treacherous Machete), is playing the Balmoral on the 17th with the Best Revenge, and Elton Bong.

The same day (from midnight that morning to midnight on the 18th), tune into CiTR for 24 Hours of Radio Art, which is a full day of sound collage, audio experimentation, and noise. For more, check the Facebook event page here.

On Sunday, Grace Gallery hosts the release of the book "Fifty One Ways to Make New Friends." In addition to the book release, the evening also features a collaborative performance from Andy Dixon and Basketball's Luka Rogers. Andy describes it as a cross between Basketball and Secret Mommy. Door and bar proceeds go to the Downtown Eastside Women's Centre.

On January 23rd, Centre A Gallery is home to Up With Hope, featuring Corbin Murdoch & the Nautical Miles and Shindig runners-up, the Sappers. All the proceeds go to the Up with Hope Project.

Low Decibel Festival goes down at the Shed on January 31st. The evening features over 20 acts doing two songs each without the aid of any electricity, not even batteries, and not even for microphones. Show starts at 7pm, so get there early if you plan on going. Check the full line-up here.

Cadence Weapon is at the Biltmore on February 28th with Thunderheist. Seeing as it's a Saturday, I'd imagine it's part of Glory Days.

Bonnie Prince Billy is at the Vogue on March 25th.

Acid Mother's Temple is at the Biltmore on April 7th.

And, Lions in the Street have a new EP up for download from their website for the increasingly popular price point of "whatever you want."

No idea when, but since it's a Vogue show, ticketmaster for sure, at the very least.
