i'll never belong
My favourite annual local event, Music Waste, is accepting submissions. If your band wants to play, you can send submissions to your stuff to submissions[AT]musicwaste.ca. In the words of the organizers:
Music Waste will run June 2nd - 5th, 2010.Short notice, but Clipse, the Crystal Method, the Good News, and Humans play Rocky Mountaineer (1755 Cottrell) tonight. Tix are only $15 online.
Just send a link to your Myspace page and a few pleasantries. Maybe a contact name and phone number.
We don't need to see any press photos or stupid EPKs. Seriously, we don't give a shit what you look like standing in an alley against a brick wall or how your band met. It was probably at the mall in line buying jeans at Randy River, wasn't it? Just be honest.
If you're not in a band, tell your friends. If you don't have friends, start a band and take a press photo in an alley. People love people who take photos against brick walls. Take our word for it.
Saturday, B-Lines, Grown Ups, Healthy Students, Ex-Friends, Impossible Babes, and Forced Laugh play the Alf House.
Also Saturday, Hermetic, Crystal Swells, and Aunts & Uncles play Las Brisas (formerly the Purple Crab).
Efterklang, Certain Breeds, Aunts & Uncles play the Biltmore on March 12th.
And Scion's using a bunch of their advertising budget to put on a free(!) show at the Biltmore on March 25th with King Khan & the BBQ Show, White Lung, and Twin Crystals. You need to RSVP (and then line up early) to get in. Details on FaceSpace.
