been reaching for my baby
I made it down to the Media Club on Monday night to catch Tennis. I missed the harmonies that help make the record so great, but Alaina Moore's singing was so strong live, it almost made up for the absent extra vocal parts. They played (more or less) the whole record, a cover I didn't recognize, and a couple of new tunes for a set that was concise enough for a weekday (and for a new band), but long enough for a proper headlining set. The Media Club was packed out for
Unrelated to live music, because there's no band this month, but I'll be playing records (note: not "DJing," DJ's can competently match beats either... at least with the aid of a computer. I can just play records) at Damaged Goods at the Astoria tomorrow night. If you too think that it's appropriate to follow "Glad Girls" with Robyn and then with a Misfits record during a dance party, come down early. If not, come down anyways, because Dustin and Jake will be playing songs that normal people like to dance to.
Somehow, I got nominated in the CBC Radio 3 "Best Canadian Music Website" Poll. I'm flattered, mystery nominator, but let's keep it real here and all throw the local vote behind Winnie Cooper. Ok? Sweet.
now playing: Rihanna feat. Drake - "What's My Name"
