Bringing About The Apocalypse Is Not Considered Cool
The Ambulance Ltd show that had been scheduled for March 2 at the Mod Club (yes, I just used the past tense) is no longer. Earlier yesterday, Ticketmaster had the show listed with the date TBA and Autolux, who had been tipped as support, appeared to be confirmed in Virigina on that day continuing to support The Secret Machines. Emerge has confirmed that the rescheduled date is April 16, still at the Mod Club, and that all tickets for the March 2 show will be honoured on the new date. I have no idea who will support, but I am going to stop saying “Autolux” because I’m starting to sound stupid. But on the plus side, it’s a Saturday show now.
Of course, what this also means is that I may well have the energy to hit some CMW shows on the Thursday night after all. We shall see.
The Ratio is a new online music zine based out of Toronto that just started up. Their first issue (looks like they’ll be publishing biweekly) looks promising with some interesting feature topics (Gowan?) and the writing is pretty good. Worth a look.
Another new site is Popstars Feet, brought to my attention by Largehearted Boy. The idea of a blog based on photos of indie pop musicians’ feet is a novel one, but you just know what someone, somewhere, is getting off on this.
24: I don’t know, are we supposed to cheer that Soul Patch (nee Tony) is back in the game? What I want to know is, what has he been doing for the past two years that he can be at a garage in Burbank, armed, within 10 minutes of getting a phone call from Jack. Driving a cab? And next time I need a security firm that can efficiently get massacred in their own offices, I’ll be sure to call those guys. Otherwise, not too much to say about the other storylines. Behruz and Mom on the run, CTU not quite getting the job done. Etc etc. I like how Sarah told Maryanne in precise detail where Jack and Audrey were going – she’s just helpful like that. And this Jack/Audrey/Paul triangle thing would be a lot more interesting if the husband didn’t look like Mr Bean.
Wonderfalls is out on DVD today! Go buy/rent it. It’s good.
This is turning out to be kind of a slow week.
