Jacques Greene and Cashmere Cat outdoors tonight (if the rain stops) followed by the Fresh & Onlys at the Golden Age Club and Mission of Burma at the #1 Legion. Tomorrow I'll be for sure catching Blitzen Trapper, Neko Case, and Dan Deacon. Saturday is Touche Amore, Rocket from the Crypt, Spiritualized, and St. Vincent.
That's a good list of shows my friend. Pixies and Modest Mouse should be great at Mac Hall, I just can't fathom paying to see them again since neither have released anything worthwhile since I last saw them at that venue. On my horizon...
Mission of Burma (Sled Island) - Legion #1 Bob Mould with FURY THINGS (Sled Island) - The Republik Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Jubilee Auditorium Matthew Good - Calgary Stampede Shakey Graves - Palomino (Stampede Show) Gordon Downie w/ The Sadies - Calgary Stampede Arcade Fire - Shitty Saddledome X-Fest -Shitty Fort Calgary
Also, after talking to Pink Mountaintops after their set at Sasquatch, they are apparently playing Calgary in July or August, so that show will definitely be added to my list.
06/18-22 - Sled Island 06/27 - Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds @ Jubilee Auditorium 7/06 - Tokyo Police Club @ Calgary Stampede 7/18-20 - Pemberton Music Festival @ Pemberton, BC 7/22 - Modest Mouse w/ Kevin Drew @ MacEwan Hall 08/12 - Arcade Fire @ the Saddledome 10/05 - Pixies @ MacEwan Hall
I got set lists from both The National and QOSTA and the both skipped songs that were supposed to be played. Not to mention that Queens left the stage 20 minutes early and still left a song or two off, one of which was Faireweather Friends dammit. But my God, they were amazing!
Aw man Fairweather Friends is so awesome. That's too bad. What did the National skip? They played for pretty much their entire time slot but I know sometimes headliners stick around a bit longer than scheduled so they could have squeezed some more in.

I will also be on the lookout for boarders. I will actually have a functioning phone this year so I can post on here.
Also I can't believe that I leave in ~12 hours. I've been really busy at work lately so it really crept up on me. That being said, I am starting to get extremely excited. I'm pretty much done packing so I'm sure the hours before I try to sleep will go by painfully slow.

I could be wrong, but I don't think that they will be announcing any more "big names". The bulk of the lineup tomorrow will more than likely be the 150-200 local bands that are playing. I'm still very curious to see the remainder though.
You're probably right, nothing else huge coming but I'm still pretty excited. Should be a few good things and I'll get to do more digging
