if you strike me down in anger, here i stand

It seems like ages since I've posted about any shows I've seen. Well, it has been ages, actually.

Between then and now, I managed to catch Leonard Cohen (who was brilliant--check out Elaine Corden's review), Boogie Monster (whose wicked set included some noisily re-imagined covers of Kanye and Japandroids), and Piper Davis (who was in her usual fine form at Glory Days).



Between then and now, that thing up there also came out (although, they didn't have it at RedCat yet when I went the other day, so I don't have the real thing). Some people whose opinions hold a lot more weight than mine really like it.

The guys were out on tour when Brian had to be rushed to the hospital, which you may have read about. Hope you'll join me in wishing him a quick recovery.

Lions in the Street are at the Media Club on Friday with Chris Read & the Pool Hall Gospel.

Hermetic play Little Mountain on May 2nd with Collapsing Opposites, Search Parties, and the SSRIs.

The same night, Jaws and No Gold play the Astoria.

Bravo Juliet play the Railway on May 6th with the Blue Violets and the Good News.

Bend Sinister play the Biltmore on May 7th with Language Arts and We Are the City.

The same night, Man Your Horse, Aunts & Uncles, and the Armadilettantes are at the Backstage Lounge.

Julie Doiron is at the Biltmore on June 14th.

Slayer and Megadeth are at GM Place on June 24th. Epic.

Three Mile Pilot are reunited and at Richard's on July 21st.

Kings of Leon are at GM Place on August 15th.

And, it's out of town, but the Cap Hill Block Party features the Jesus Lizard and Sonic-fucking-Youth as headliners this year. Two days for $40 USD. See you there?

Oh, and go, Canucks, go!

now playing: Sonic Youth - Antenna
