these are my dress clothes
There was a plethora of great shows to try to attend last night, but I opted for a metal fix over summery beach jams (No Gold), noisy pop (Tyvjk), or underground legends (ex-Dead Moon-ers, Pierced Arrows).
What can you really say about Bison that Vancouverites don't already know? Save for the awesome surprise of having two friends join them on stage on cello and violin to perform the intro for "Wendigo, Pt. 1 (Quest for Fire)," it was everything that you've probably already come to expect from a Bison show. In a word, awesome.
I didn't get my ass in gear until pretty late, so I missed Haggatha and only caught the very end of Jaws' set: a pretty great cover of Nirvana's "Tourette's."
Bob Wiseman is at the Western Front on March 27th with Collapsing Opposites. I've only had the pleasure of seeing Bob perform live once, but I definitely recommend going to check this out if you haven't seen him before. If you have, chances are you're already thinking about it.
Wintersleep is at the Commodore on April 3rd. (thanks Dmitry)
Brasstronaut celebrates their return home from their artist's residency at the Banff Centre on April 30th at the Biltmore with Ohbijou. This should also mean that the Clips will reconvene as well, which is a double dose of good news.
Speaking of Brasstronaut, check out their new video for "Requiem for a Scene":

B-Lines, Isotopes, Hard Feelings, and Pretty Vanilla are at the Cobalt on May 8th.
Obits (who feature Rick Froberg ex-Drive Like Jehu) play the media club with the Lights on May 15th.
And Grouper is opening the Animal Collective show on May 24th.
now playing: Test Icicles - Boa vs Python
Grouper is opening the AC show instead of Blues Control??! Don't get me wrong, I love me some Grouper and I'm happy that she'll be exposed to such a large crowd, but I was excited to see Blues Control. Maybe both are opening?
According to SWAK it's just Grouper right now... but that could change.
