UK ska legends THE SPECIALS returned for a reunion tour that took in two stops and two venues in Vancouver on March 29 (at the Commodore Ballroom) & March 30 (at the Vogue Theatre)> Here’s what happened. There was also beer.
The Flaming Lips announced they’d be re-releasing their quardrophonic album Zaireeka for Record Store Day 2013, which reminded me of a package Wayne Coyne once sent. Take a look, in this special BSR REWIND.
Grizzly Bear and the Lower Dens were in town for the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. So I did what any normal rocktacular person would do, I made a turkey for the band. And got drunk. Full gallery/review here.
Stephen Malkmus, Bob Mould, The Shins, The Antlers, hanging out with Lower Dens, the Foo Fighters, Black Keys and the return from the dead of REFUSED. This is my final day at the Pukkelpop. Enjoy the adventure, I did.
