Sept 20th, 2009

I had so much pent up music ready to play since last week. I thought it came out fairly well. Well, really well actually. Next week will be so up-to-date, cause there are so many great shows coming the week after. And, since it's beyond the fact, I hate that Fucked Up won the Polaris prize this year. Elliott Brood should have won it hands down.

Hopalong Knut - Ut Gjennom Vinduet
Blue King Brown - Stand Up
Record of the Week Club - A Thousand Nights Alone

Dangit, I didn't pound together my epic show like I wanted. Instead it will seep into the subconscious of all following shows. Like this one. As is the way. Exploring lots of new music here:

Metric - Blindness
Giant Sons - Coniferous
Impeders of Progress - I Hope You Like Soup Kids
Not Half - Why Doesn't This Work?
The Burning Hell - Daneer/Romaneer
The Human Abstract - Harbinger
The Lawrence Arms - Beyond The Embarassing Style
Evil Survives - Vampire Ambush
Japandroids - I Quit Girls
Tinariwen - Assouf
Blue King Brown - Samoas Song
Shout Out Out Out Out - Guilt Trips Sink Ships
Immaculate Machine - You Got Us Into This Mess
Hot Water Music - Bottomless Seas
White Cowbell Oklahoma - Polecat
The Burning Hell - Untitled

I will play Blue King Brown & The Burning Hell for the next 8 weeks at least. They burned up my summer. I absolutely love their albums - Stand Up & baby respectively. While the Weakerthans make me miss home, these two protect me from all sorts of homesick.
