Beloved lo-fi kings – and my very good friends – Sebadoh returned to Vancouver after 1,825 days. But who’s counting? I was, I was counting. It’s been 5 years since they’ve played live here so let’s see what’s what, shall we?

You can depend on Dinosaur Jr to bleed your ears out in a great way, but you can’t expect every show to be locked in, tight. September 30 at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver was once such. Good to see old friends again.

Yay for festivals! Herewith Day 1 (a slow and mostly Lou Barlow-y sort of day with a touch of Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet) of the fab Sled Island festival in Calgary on June 20, 2012. The longest day of the year, and one filled with fab musicks and friends. Stay tuned for Days 2 & 3!

WEEZER CRUISE Diary Day 3: Saturday, Jan. 21 “BACKSTREET’S BACK”

January 21st will go down in history as: Parasailing in Mexico, eating fajitas with Yuck, rocking out to Pinkerton and Weezer, and going deaf again to Dinosaur Jr, an 80s prom and Backstreet Boys with Lou Barlow. In other words, PERFECT.
