call it something else



A few quick things:

1) A reminder that Shindig continues with week #2 tomorrow. As a bonus, Tuesday's are also cask beer night at the Railway (they didn't get one last week, for some reason).

2) Quick (and almost exclusively local) picks for Olio:

Thursday:
The Abramson Singers (10:30pm at Guilt & Co) - Their latest record is amazing. Buy it)
Piper Davis (11pm at the Met)- Back from the depths of Alberta for one night only!
Koban (11:30pm at Lick) - I will watch Britt and Sam whenever I can.
Fine Mist (midnight at the Met) - I love their forthcoming LP so much, I'm helping them pay for it. Please also buy it (soon).
Shout Out Out Out Out (12:30am at 560) - Honestly, I haven't listened to their recorded output in ages, but they're always a good time live.
No Gold (1am at Honey) - Everyone is going to be at the Very Best, but if you're not there early, you're probably not getting in.
Friday
Graham Clark and Dave Shumka (7pm at the Rickshaw) - I know zip about comedy, but these two guys make me laugh. Also, last provincial election I (protest) voted for Graham.
Watermelon (10pm at Blim) - Their official write-up doesn't make any sense, as does not seeing them if you have a wristband.
Joyce Collingwood (11pm at the Astoria) - They totally killed it at Music Waste.
Nu Sensae (midnight at the Astoria) - I guess the fact that I haven't seen them play in too long isn't really a reason for you to see them. But the fact that they rule is.
White Lung (1am at the Astoria) - Just camp out at the Astoria all Friday, ok? See also: "early contender for local record of the year."
Saturday
B-Lines (10pm at the Media Club) - One of the city's most consistent(ly great) live acts.
Needles x Pins (11pm at the Media Club) - Download their EP and be convinced.
Defektors (midnight at the Media Club) - I mean, you're already going to be there, right?
3) And, since the Polaris winner gets announced tonight, check out this great article in Spinner that Carl Wilson penned.

4) Oh, and I don't know when Godspeed tix go on sale. But you will when I do, internet.
