Let's start with some local news, shall we?

Adjective celebrates the release of their new EP, I Am Sorry for Your Loss, on March 7th at the Media Club. Twin Crystals, the New Values, and Against Civilization support.

I haven't heard the EP yet, but a guy you might have heard of named Graham Lewis liked the demos so much he offered to help with production and lent back up vocals to "Profession" (the demo version is up on their MySpace), so really, who am I to judge?

February 24th marks the third night for Weirdness at the Biltmore. London Drugs, Cosmetics, and Futurehair all perform.

Futurecop plays the Biltmore on March 10th with Theophilus London and Expendable Youth.

Stereo Total are at the Biltmore with Leslie and the Lys on March 31st.

Mirah is at the Biltmore on April 3rd with Tara Jane O'Neil.

The next night, Hot Panda, Vincat, and Fanshaw are at the Media Club.

Marissa Nadler plays an early show at the Media Club on April 11th.

Sebastien Tellier is at Richard's on April 14th. Chairlift supports. As a side note, Sexuality was one of the worst records I reviewed last year.

Red Cedar plays the Railway on April 22nd with the Greff Band and Valerie Graham.

On April 18th, Mr. Lif plays Richard's.

Buraka Som Sistema are at the Biltmore on April 24th.
