Modest Mouse just announced more dates through Canada in July and August. www.modestmouse.com/ It looks like since they're playing Pemberton there'll be no Vancouver date, but I think I'll be making the trek out to Calgary. Has anyone seen a show at the MacEwan Concert Hall in Calgary? How big is it?
Yukon Blonde puts on a really good show. I saw them about a month ago in Kelowna opening for We Are The City in the back of some small church multiporpoise room. It was a weird setting, but Yukon Blonde blew it up. Definitely see them if you have a chance.
I'm not really sure how known these guys are outside of BC, but Said the Whale and We Are the City are playing in Portland Nov 10 and Seattle Nov 11. Sully did a review of We Are the City in the album of the week thread, but I don't think it got much attention. I'd highly recommend checking out the show if you're in the area, as they both are killer live.
Just wanted to give a BIG thanks to gramma for this thread. I've been lurking for over a year now, and this thread plus a bunch of other posts from you have introduced me to Ween, Dan Bern, Clem Snide, The Philistines Jr, The Flaming Lips and countless other artists that my young self would never have known, or at least I wouldn't have dove into them as I have. This thank you is long overdue as I have been loving these chunes for some time now. Keep up the awesome work and know that there are people getting a lot from your write-ups.
