I actually wasn’t going to post today – we had our company Christmas party last night and I was expecting (hoping?) to be so completely out of commission this morning that writing anything beyond, “Hungover. Come back tomorrow” would have been a Herculean feat. But, as it turns out, when you’re out cold by 10:40PM, you tend to wake up extra early the next morning (not especially hungover, amazingly) and with a lot of time on your hands. And so here we are.
And for the record? Alberta Springs is some nasty, nasty, nasty, NASTY shit. Vile, even. You’ve been warned.
Two more pieces on Stars – Chart and JAM! both profile the band. A little sleuthing (read: asking) has revealed the opening acts for this weekend’s shows at the Mod Club. Saturday night, I will be seeing The String Section start things up – no, I have no idea who they are and a Google search on “string section” is the very definition of futility – and on Sunday, the underagers get to experience the dulcet tones of Chad Van Gaalen, whom I’ve never heard but have been told is quite good.
The new New Order album is indeed called Sugarcane – thanks Shaunna. Out March 28.
Okay, I totally need to go back to sleep now.
