Broken Social Scene

I just wanted to pop in and say... hello to everyone! I know its been a while, and I wont bore you with all of the "I've been super busy planning things" nonsense that I usually spit out when i havent posted in ages. But I will tell you this. there is a LOT of amazing music out right now, and if I get some free time this weekend I intend to write a blog about it.

But what brings us together today is... Broken Social Scene. I shouldn't have to tell you much about BSS. If you read my blog you should know that I'm a huge fan of canadian music. Broken Social Scene has a lot to do with that. As they are from Canada, and they are Amazing. and they have members that have been in and are in TONS of other amazing Canadian bands. Therefore, they have brought many many other amazing artists to my attention.

BSS have released a new single, "World Sick" for free download on their website. Its typical amazing BSS at their best. A massive army of guitars, peppered with synth and a small legion of drums and chorus. I can only hope this 7 minute epic is a reflection of what to expect from their new album "Forgiveness Rock Record" which is due to drop on May 4th. right in the middle of a World Tour that includes, San Francisco, London, Amsterdam and Toronto.

In other news, those familiar with me personally might remember a little old clubnight I used to have called POPSMEAR. from back in 2005 when I lived in Fresno. Well I got a call a few weeks ago asking if I would be interested in a Popsmear Reunion. Of course I was. So Sunday March 7th at the Starline in Fresno, I will be playing some old and new music with some old friends! I think its 5 bucks, but im not sure. just tell them you came to see me and you're on my guest list if you dont have a fiver.

Oh one more thing. ModModMod Friends, WALLPAPER. are headlining a pretty big show tonight in SF. You might have heard of it. NOISE POP. at Slims. You should PROBABLY Be there for this.
Other than that... I hope you all have a rad weekend. and try not to get to crazy with the cheeze whiz.

Other than that, I hope everyone has a great weekend.
