Broken Social Scene, Juno Awards, Halifax, 2 April 2006
I missed the better part of the Junos – better meaning both time-wise and performance-wise. Sure, I saw Black Eyed Peas perform but not Broken Social Scene. I did, however, see BSS take home the Juno for Alternative (? do people still use that word to describe music? In this case I guess it still works – alternative to utter crap) Album of the Year. Which was completely deserved, although I would have been happy if the New Pornographers won it as well. Thanks to the wonders of the internet I was able to check out their performance today and you can too. See the teeny-tiny video here.
Or you can listen to it:
* Broken Social Scene, Ibi Dreams of Pavement.mp3 (Live at the Junos, Halifax, 2 April 2006)
The sound is a bit wonky at the 14 second mark, otherwise it is pretty good – but let me know if there is a better sounding copy out there.
“Fight for better music Canada.” Damn straight.
