Since I'll be in Calgary for Sled Island next weekend, I got to book the bands for this week's Damaged Goods at the Astoria. This time around, Healthy Students, who are coming off one of my favourite performances of Music Waste, and Shove, who'll be playing their very first show, both agreed to play. If you want to talk about a who's who of the local music scene, you don't need to look much further than either of these two bands, so I'm psyched that they're both going to be playing.
Oh, and my good friend Neil is moving across the Atlantic, so he's going spin some records for the last time. Come out to see him off too.
