it's raining in vancouver, but i don't give a fuck
This year's Music Waste schedule is up. As per usual, it's a nice mix of established local acts, some Vancouver bands that you may not have heard yet, and a handful of touring bands. This year, they've also added comedy and art shows into the mix. The Music Waste Guide (presumably with set times, but apparently, and sadly, without the snarky write ups) will run in the June issue of Beat Route Magazine and passes (which pay for themselves if you hit up a mere three shows) should be in stores tomorrow.
MT-40, Cat Attack, and Manta Raygun play Funky Winkerbean's on Sunday.
The Mount Saint Helens Vietnam Band plays an early show at the Biltmore on May 22nd with No Gold.
And since we're already talking about that weekend...
The same night, I get to play booker at Damaged Goods for the second time. Fine Mist and Candles
On May 23rd, Harlem Shakes are at Glory Days at the Biltmore. Passion Pit is touring with them, but I don't think they'll be playing here.
On May 24th, Glory Days brings Amanda Blank and Spank Rock's Devlin & Darko to the Biltmore. Love & Electrik provide local support.
Black Dice, Wolf Eyes, and Sade Sade (ex-Yellow Swans) are at the Biltmore on May 25th. I'm pretty psyched for this.
Rye Rye is at Shine on June 4th.
now playing: Wilco - Radio Cure
