You may have received the Facebook invite already, but if not, I'm very pleased to announce the second Sunday afternoon swap meet at the Biltmore.
This time around, personal and Pitchfork faves, Japandroids are playing, in addition to a fresh-from-their-cd-release-party Adjective, the always great Terror Bird, and DRMHLLR, who I'll actually be hearing for the first time.
The actual swap meet part runs more or less the same as last time: there will be local vendors on hand to sell things, the Kitchen Coup will be selling snacks (once again, their rad pulled pork sandwiches), and anyone is invited to come sell garage sale type stuff (though you might want to get there closer to the noon start time if you want a decent spot).
And now, some bad news:
As most of you have heard the cops shut the party down on Saturday and the Peanut Gallery has had to come to an end. Out back got too busy, they came down and wrote Michael up. That’s it for the Peanut Gallery.Not entirely surprising, for obvious reasons, of course. But still a bummer.
Thanks for supporting us over the past year and a bit. It was a lot of fun. I would like to collect any photos that were taken down there. If you could send them to firstname.lastname@example.org I will be putting together a collection of the past year. Even if it only makes in onto the website at least it will all be in one place.
On Saturday, Fanshaw, Lost Lovers Brigade, Role Mach, Sajia Kabir, and Sweet Potatoes are at Little Mountain.
Shipyards, Air Castle, Stamina Mantis, and Geographing are at Little Mountain on the 13th.
Women are at WISE Hall on April 5th with Nu Sensae and Kidnapping.
The night after that, White Denim play the Media Club. Japandroids open up.
Fucked Up are at the Biltmore on April 14th.
The weekly's gone underground, but Half Alive is still throwing the odd special event. They'll bring Glass Candy back to town on April 22nd at Richard's. Johnny Jewel does double duty when he opens as Desire and local favourites Channels 3x4 play a rare show to round things out.
The next night Mastodon play the Commodore with Kylesa and Intronaut. As PFork reports, they'll play the forthcoming Crack the Skye in it's entirety before delving into their back catalogue. I'm pretty psyched for this.

Glad to hear yr doing the Swap Meet again, Quinn. Last time was a bust for me due to the snowfall that weekend, but I intend on bringing up a nice stack of new and used vinyl, cassettes and CDs to unload. I think I even convinced Josh Rose to split a table with me. I'm not on Facebook, so you'll have to consider this as my RSVP.
what's the website for the peanut gallery if there is one?
