Free shit Sunday. Today we gave away tickets to Great Lake Swimmers. They are at Lucky Bar on Friday night. Andrea gave away Russian Futurists tickets. They are at Logan's on Monday. Louis gave away tickets to Final Fantasy. He is at Alix Goolden Hall on Sunday. There are still tickets available to all these shows if you want to go. You probably should.

We started off the show this week with nice, pretty music and descended into dancey, noisey chaos, only to emerge on the other side with a nice old Magnetic Fields classic and a new Sunset Rubdown epic.

Highlights from the playlist include the Hot Loins Buzzkill 7". Hot Loins reside in East Vancouver and make really spastic music. You can find them on the Broadway to Boundary label, who are into putting out bits of noisey Vancouver music on coloured (and sometimes square-shaped) vinyl. Also noteworthy was the Jenny Omnichord track. A member of Guelph's The Barmitzvah Brothers, Jenny Omnichord has just put out her solo album Cities of Gifts and Ghosts. It was recorded all over Ontario with lots of great musical guests. The omnichord is a plastic electronic musical device built by Suzuki. As Jenny says, "it's time for the omnichord to take its rightful position among the upper echelons of musical instruments." This is important.

If you have the opportunity, check out more of Geneviève Castrée's music and art. She is on tour right now.

Not free, but worth the dinero...

Who wants to go on a date with two beautiful men with even lovelier dispositions?

I am auctioning off my Final Fantasy ticket because I can't go.
