you know i need pills when you say 'i love you'

With the Cobalt shutting its doors and Far Away ending things off one a super bad ass note with the Misfits Halloween Party last Friday, Vancouver's down a few regular nights that hosted live acts, so it's good when I can talk about a new one for a change.

First Friday goes down, fittingly, on the first Friday of every month at the Eldorado (Nanaimo & Kingsway) and it kicks off this week with Needles & Pins, Unfun, Detention, and Born to Run, three bands that I haven't heard and one that I haven't had a chance to catch live yet.

But, while I haven't caught Needles & Pins in the flesh, Tony was nice enough to send over some recordings. The whole set is pretty awesome, but this one definitely sticks out as the highlight...

Oh, and I haven't got around to drawing No Gold contest winners, so if you entered, you still might hear from me soon!

I read something about a vancouver compilation cassette for $4 in maximum rock&roll, but I didn't buy the issue. Do you have any info?

Not really sure. There was a cassette comp that VidKid put out (vidkid.org)... but it doesnt sound like something that would be in Maximum R&R
