Plants and Animals, Grad Club, Kingston, 22 November 2008

P&A live at the 2008 Wolfe Island Music Fest.

I saw the amazing Plants & Animals three times in 2008, each possibly better than the last. I think they came to town last year but I missed every occasion and, likewise, I am going to miss them on Saturday at the Grad Club. You’ll be missing them, too, if you don’t have a ticket as it is long sold out (you should go to the $100 & Attack in Black show at the Mansion instead. Actually, even if you are going to P&A you can hit the other show, too, as it is an early show 6-8pm. It is  a CFRC Funding Drive show).

I thought I’d take a listen to their November 2008 show to remind myself how good they are live. The answer: really, really good. Listen to the songs below if you don’t believe me.

The band is releasing a new album called La La Land on April 20th. You can download the first song, “Tom Cruz” from Secret City records.

They will be touring to support the new record here are some of their upcoming dates (see their myspace for more details):

March 12 – Lee’s Palace (CMW showcase), Toronto, ON
March 13 – Royal York Hotel (CMW Indie Awards), Toronto, ON
March 17-21 – SXSW, Austin, TX
April 21 – Theatre Petit Champlain, Quebec City, QC
April 22 – La Tulipe, Montreal, QC
April 23 – Babylon, Ottawa, ON
April 24 – The Red Dog, Peterborough, ON

April 30 – Starlite Room, Edmonton, AB
May 1 – The Legion, Calgary, AB
May 2 – Habitat, Kelowna, BC

Here are a few tracks from when I last saw them. If you are going to the show on Saturday let me know how it was.

Check out Secret City Records where you can buy Plants & Animals’ older releases (in fact, you should buy each and every records SC has released. They are all freakin’ incredible) and be sure to check back late April to get the new album.
