Santa, Baby

Santa Claus ParadeWith the Greater Toronto Area already getting a little of snow flurry activity starting yesterday(and with the 101st Santa Claus Parade happening in Toronto on Sunday), I'm already getting into a holiday mood. Christmas is nice and all but there are parts of it that I also dread. Did any of you commuters notice how fucked up the traffic was yesterday going home from work? Of course, I had to pick yesterday to drive in to Toronto to get to work since I was running late. Traffic'll only get worse as the holiday season approaches. Not to forget to mention the malls, stores and shopping centres, but those are gonna be a zoo. If the mall I went to yesterday night was any indication, this year's gonna be worse than last year. I may just go in to hibernation until the whole thing's over, but not without drowning myself in good music during those waking hours.

Thanks to Making Its Home In Your Radio and There's Always Something Cooler Than You for linking back to yesterday's post regarding Neko Case's live performance on WYNC's Soundcheck. And both blogs above have graciously provided links to mp3 downloads of the two songs that Neko performed!

The Decemberists performed a live session for BBC 6 Music's Gideon Coe yesterday(November 18, 2005). Listen here(program is only archived for a week; session begins about 1 hour and 40 minutes into the program).

Here's a torrent(registration required) of a live show from November 15, 2005 of The Constantines at Batofar in Paris, France. [via Largehearted Boy]
