C'mon & Get Down

The ZoobombsJust a followup to The Zoobombs news yesterday. Just this past Monday, Dan Burke posted on 20hz all the info for the upcoming Zoobombs gigs. Along with their date at The Comfort Zone on March 5th, The Zoobombs will also have shows at The Silver Dollar on March 3rd and 4th. Each night will feature a different set of bands, with The Zoombombs headlining each night. Tickets are $10 and are now on sale at The Silver Dollar, Soundscapes, Rotate This, and Penguin Music.

Junior Boys will be headlining A Concert For Tsunami Relief which will be at Quarters(McMaster University Pub at the Student Centre) on Monday February 7th. Tickets $10.00. 7pm start time. Opening bands will include Whitey and The Caucasians, Cities In Dust, and The Rest. Worth a drive to Hamilton possibly. [info from 20hz]

Someone at 20hz said Buck 65 won't be making it to the Brampton Indie Arts Festival after all, but Jim Guthrie and The Rheostatics have been added. Yay! Check out the program.

Rotate This lists Death From Above 1979 playing a gig at The Opera House in Toronto on March 8th, tickets $15.

The Frontier Index are featured over at Soul Shine Magazine. They'll be playing in Toronto on February 4 at El Mocambo (along with The League Champs, Beneath Augusta) as well as in Toronto on March 5 at Healey’s (as part of the Canadian Music Week showcase with Telepathic Butterflies, and High Dials)

Pitchfork reports that Ben Folds will be releasing his new album "Songs For Silverman" on April 26th. As much as I love Ben Folds' music, the news of Weird Al Yankovic singing back-up on one of the tracks("Time") isn't a selling point. Tracklisting is as follows:

01 Bastard
02 You To Thank
03 Jesusland
04 Landed
05 Gracie
06 Trusted
07 Give Judy My Notice
08 Late
09 Sentimental Guy
10 Time
11 Prison Food

Canadian Press reports that Jay and Silent Bob will appear on Degrassi: The Next Generation. Kevin Smith boasts "I got to make out with Caitlin Ryan. . .for hours!". Ok, not really. But it was a funny quote. [link from Largehearted Boy]

Largehearted Boy also points towards a torrent of a Wilco show which took place in Toronto at Convocation Hall on April 21, 2002 and by the looks of the tracklisting, a show I wish I had been at.
