Let's start with some out of town news: the initial Sled Island line-up is out (with more bands to come later). The fest runs from June 30th-July 3rd in Calgary and it's always a great time. Four day passes are already on sale for $170 at the Sled Island website.
Parlour Steps, Lakefield, and Blank Cinema are at the Railway tonight.
The Idea of South and Ill & Bad play 1067 Granville St. on April 3rd. This one comes recommended by the lovely and talented Leah Abramson, whose word is good enough for me (and whose record you should check out if you haven't already).
