Pocket Symphony

Air - Pocket Symphony

The worldwide listening party for the new Air album "Pocket Symphony" will be held tomorrow on February 15 through the band's website. You'll need a password in order to access the listening party - you can obtain the password by subscribing to the band's newsletter.
Boohoo for the Final Fantasy/The Silt/The Centaurs show at the Tranzac on February 23 already being sold out. If anything, at least Final Fantasy will be at the Brampton Indie Arts Festival(at the Rose Theatre) tomorrow for a brief(but hopefully satisfying) set.

Just announced, The Acorn, The Hot Springs, Uncut, plus secret guests will be at The Whipper Snapper Gallery in Toronto for a show on March 10. Doors 9 pm and tickets are $8 at the door.

Sondre Lerche with Willy Mason and Thomas Dybdahl are on the sched for a show at The Mod Club on April 2. Tickets onsale tomorrow at 10 am.

Daniel Josef posted a video clip on YouTube from night 5(February 10) of Arcade Fire's recent 5-night stint at The Ukranian Federation in Montreal - the video clip is of the band performing a 'secret' encore in the basement hall of the venue. So now that it's been confirmed that The Arcade Fire will be in Toronto for a two-night stint at Massey Hall on May 15-16[onsale February 23 @ noon], what do you think they can do to top that? There's a torrent(registration required) of an audio recording of The Arcade Fire show from February 10 to download[via Largehearted Boy].

And being released May 8[my birthday, btw], Domino Records will be releasing a double CD of music by Elliott Smith entitled "New Moon", containing 24 songs recorded between 1995-1997. And maybe more importantly, according to Domino, "A significant portion of proceeds from the album sales will go directly to Outside In, a Portland-based social service organization dedicated to providing diverse services for homeless youth and low-income adults."
