New Pornographers - cancelled, etc...

Bad news... The New Pornographers gig at First Avenue on 10/22/05 has been cancelled due to health issues (actually an appendix attack). Read more about it on More Cowbell. Looks like the date will be made up at some point, hopefully...

I'm with More Cowbell... I'll try to catch the Metric /American Analog Set combination instead.

I think I'm skipping The Decemberists tonight, just because I've already seen them @ ACL a few weeks ago, and to preserve some cash for next week's outstanding live shows (Go! Team, My Morning Jacket, Broken Social Scene, The Hold Steady).

If I don't get to my mp3 post this evening... make sure you check out Stereogum for some "leaked" tracks (4 and counting) off the upcoming Strokes record, and Rock Snob for a link to the full Babyshambles album (in addition to some other great stuff).

Yeah, I'm fairly sure the Strokes tracks are being leaked on purpose and have to do with their upcoming tour. I mean, come on, 4 leaked tracks in 4 straight days...

Have a great weekend!

Huh, man, you are visiting too many concerts ;) Can't even keep up with commenting here...
Musn't you suffer from complete insomnia by now?

Yeah, way too many shows lately... Nothing this week until Friday; nice for a change actually!

Regarding insomnia... My sleeping schedule is already pretty messed up, even without all the concerts I go to...

As they say "You can always sleep after you die", right!???

Seriously, I agree with Bronxbynight...so many shows! Though, it's nice to know that I can still read all about it from the mountains of California! Do you ever sleep? Oh yeah, during the day!

Is it that kind of coffin I own for myself, too...? A room incoorporating a desk, a computer and then and when some nerdy colleagues?
My thoughts are with you, brother, be strong ;)

queenvick: nice updates on your blog... still missing South Central ;)
