Nine Bands – Six Days

Posted in mp3, mumbling at 5:50 pm by rgsc

The end of February has turned out the be a rather busy time around b(oot)log with a ton of kick ass shows happening in a short period of time. Here’s a quick roundup:

Feb 23 – Matthew Barber, Indigo Books, Kingston

Feb 25 – New Pornographers/Belle & Sebastian, The Docks, Toronto

Feb 27 – The Thurston Revival/Magnet/Stars, AJs Ale House, Kingston

Feb 28 – Holy Fuck/Islands/Metric, Grant Hall, Kingston

I have all kinds of goodies from all of the above shows for you but you will have to be patient. I will post on the New Pornographers this weekend and go from there. The real reason I’m writing is to gloat: at the Islands show last night I was able to get an advance copy of “Return to the Sea” (to be realeased April 4th) and it is fantastic. Here is a link to one of the tracks off the album:

Islands, Rough Gem.mp3 [via Largehearted Boy]

Jealous? You’re jealous.

More to come in the near future.

attempt at crowdsurfing)
