1000 BPM

While I was over at The Mod Club yesterday evening taking in a performance by Mojave 3[review still to come], Beck was over at Ricoh Coliseum entertaining a sparse crowd. Kat over at the Muchmusic blog has a positive review of the show which is pretty much the same show setup I saw when I saw Beck headline the last day of the Sasquatch Festival this past May. For a less-than positive review, check out 2nd Floor Living Without A Yard . And with one of those Oh-My-God news bits, Rolling Stone Rock and Roll Daily reports that after the show, Beck dropped by The Drake Hotel for a surprise acoustic gig - all the more painful for me for not being there since I drove right by The Drake Hotel after Mojave 3's show at The Mod Club. And I hardly ever drive that route to go home. How close I was, and yet so far. Further fan reaction over at Stille Post.

The Toronto Star and The Toronto Sun review Beck's show at Ricoh Coliseum.

In other news, over at Stille Post there's a list of bands so far confirmed for the next Brampton Indie Arts Festival coming in February 2007. I went a few years ago, didn't go last year, but the next one is looking great - Jon Rae and the River, Ohbijou, The Silver Hearts and more to be announced!

And word over at Stille Post is that Chad VanGaalen will be playing a live in-store at Rotate This this Saturday, October 21st at 5:00 pm!

Chartattack says that The Shins have confirmed a track listing for their new record "Wincing The Night Away" which is to come out January 23, 2007 on Sub Pop. The album is to be preceded by the release of a single, "Phantom Limb", first as a digital download(November 14), then CD(November 21), and finally seven inch vinyl(December 12). The single will feature single will feature the title track plus two exclusive non-album B-sides: "Nothing At All" and an alternate version of the album track, "Spilt Needles."
