Stay Out Super Late Tonight
Welcome to the placeholder post. A late final night at Pop Montreal and an early morning flight means there’s no time for a post-mortems today. Instead, I shall clear out some various links that have been accumulating over the past few days, starting with some of The National’s recent press clippings. Frontman Matt Berninger took the time to talk to The Montreal Gazette and The McGill Daily in advance of their show at Le Theatre National tonight. The Vancouver Province and The Somerville Journal also have conversations. The National are in Toronto at the Phoenix tomorrow night.
And if you’re looking for more Thanksgiving weekend rock options, consider Ted Leo & The Pharmacists at the Mod Club tonight. The Times-Union has an interview with the man they call the “everyman of punk”
You’ve almost certainly heard by now, but the Arcade Fire’s big fancy October 6 surprise was an interactive video for “Neon Bible”. If you’ve always wanted to play pattycake with Win Butler, you ship has come in.
