Chips Ahoy!

The Hold SteadyMPR has now archived The Hold Steady's live session they performed in their studios on October 24. The guys are in Toronto tonight at the Horseshoe Tavern. Chromewaves had good(make that great) things to say about the band's last show in Toronto back in August and I'm really tempted to go check their show out even though I've only sampled a few of their songs. But what I've heard, there's something refreshingly no-frills about their brand of working-class rock n' roll. If my cold isn't acting up too much tonight, I hope to go check out their show.

Billy Bragg performed a live session in BBC 6 Music's studios with host Gideon Coe. The session featured guest Seth Lakeman on one song. You can listen to the session here[the program is only archived for a week so you should be able to listen to the session until at least next Thursday; the session begins about 1 hour and 20 minutes into the program]. Songs performed were "Greetings to the New Brunette", "Farm Boy", "I Keep Faith", and "England, Half English"(featuring Seth Lakeman).

chartattack reports on what'll likely be my only Christmas music purchase this year, The dB's & Friends' "Christmas Time Again", which will be released November 21.

Toronto indie record store Rotate This is now one of the participating stores where you can pre-order the new deluxe reissue of Pavement's "Wowee Zowee" and get all the bonus goodies offered with the preorder.

Greg Keelor will be at Sam The Record Man(Yonge St) in Toronto on November 3 at 6pm for a half-hour acoustic set and afterwards will be meeting with fans and signing autographs. His record release show for his new album "Aphrodite Rose" is at Lee's Palace that night.

And in celebration of Halloween, Oklahoma's Evangelicals are offering a seasonal tune, appropriately titled "Halloween Song" for your listening/downloading pleasure. You can listen to the song over at the band's MySpace or download the song over at Misra Records. Or else send an Evangelicals Halloween e-card to your friends:

Evangelicals will be in Toronto for a show at Lee's Palace on November 13.
