Escarpment Blues

Escarpment Blues(DVD)You can watch the trailer for Sarah Harmer's new DVD "Escarpment Blues" over at her website - just check under Audio/Video. The DVD comes out October 31. You can preorder the DVD over at Maple Music which'll enter you into a contest to win an autographed DVD and other goodies. If you remember my Sarah Harmer post from this past Saturday, I also should have mentioned that Sarah and the DVD's director Andy Keen are going to be screening the film in some of the towns they visited when they shot the documentary. For Torontonians, they'll be at the Royal Ontario Museum on November 2 from 7 pm to 9 pm, when the documentary will be screened followed by a 'Preserving Our Greenbelt' Panel with Sarah Harmer & filmmaker Andy Keen. Check out ticket info and other screening dates over at Sarah's website.

Pitchfork spotlights The Dears who kicked off a world tour in Bristol last night. On an interesting note, Pitchfork mentions that openers will be fellow Arts & Crafts signees, Montreal's Young Galaxy. Never heard of them until now, but they have a great song you can download, courtesy of Arts & Crafts:

MP3: Young Galaxy - "Swing Your Heartache" (zipped mp3)

There's a few more tour dates for Toronto's The Coast over at their MySpace including an opening slot for UK's Fields who play Revival on October 30.

Handsome Furs, side project of Wolf Parade's Dan Boeckner, will be at The Drake Hotel on November 15. [via Inland Empire Touring]

According to Horseshoe Tavern, the Veruca Salt show scheduled for November 17 has been cancelled. Why? Dunno.

Just got a new soundcard - the old one was kaput - and it's great to be able to listen to music on the computer again. Going to bands' MySpace sites just isn't the same without being able to listen to their music. I'm disappointed that I missed the Ben Folds live webcast at his MySpace yesterdayTuesday evening(although I did catch a little video of it at least - on at least one song it seemed most of the audience members were given a guitar to play along to - now that's interactive!).
