Today was pretty straight-forward. Not too much talking on my part meant I got more songs in than I usually do. I got into some new stuff from Destroyer and the Constantines, as well as some old stuff from Dinosaur Jr and Joan of Arc. Nothing too weird.
There are some fun things going on in Victoria this upcoming week:
Colourbook, Ghosts, Vincat at Logan's Pub, $5
The Blankket, Blanck, Almonds, Cohen at Camas Bookstore, $5, doors at 8
The Blankket is the solo project from Steve Kado. Steve is a founder of the Blocks Recording Club, as well as a member/former member of Ninja High School, The Hidden Cameras, Lenin I Shumov, Barcelona Pavillion, Germans, Jon-Rae and the River, and a few others that I cannot remember. He is a crazy person to watch perform. To quote Bob Wiseman, "The show will be good. It will be intense." The show also doubles as a sort of Old Life Records Compilation release party. Look at Cody's nice poster.
Tune in next week as I should have an interview with Steve to air for you.
