So what’ve we got today? This and that. Nothing major.
First, the schedule for V Fest is finally up and that “TBA” on Saturday at 4:55PM sure is a chin-scratcher. Nice to know something’s still in the works. Or else that’s going to be one hour of really awkward silence. Conflicts appear to be kept to a minimum as well, with only Blonde Redhead versus Stars being the only one I’m unsure about, and the safe bet there will go BR’s way if for no other reason than I’ve yet to see them play a full, proper set. I’m also sort of pleased that there’s no one I really want to see before around 3PM either day – no disrespect intended to those who drew an earlier timeslot, but sleep is going to be a precious commodity this weekend.
MuchMusic is streaming the whole of The Go! Team’s new album Proof Of Youth, in stores next Tuesday. They play the Opera House on October 31. Drowned In Sound talks to Go! Team captain Ian Parton about how the new album is like the old album and how he’s fine with that.
