Rockin' The Suburbs

Straight from Ben Fold's website:
"Ben Folds Live Webcast from Nashville - TONIGHT!!
Today, October 24th - supersunnyspeedgraphic, the lp release day - at 9PM EST/6PM PDT, Ben will launch the first live webcast on MySpace. Live from Nashville, Ben will use MySpace’s first live webcast to interact directly with the community by using MySpace instant messenger to take requests direct from fans. MySpace will feature the live stream on Ben’s MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/benfolds and will spotlight the live session for fans via the MySpace Video channel."

the acoustic diaries reviews The New P0rnographers show at the Plaza in Vancouver on October 21, 2006 and mentions that the band's selling a limited edition live album of which only a 1000 copies were made. Anyone get their grubby hands on this and how can I get one?

Toronto's The Coast will be playing a CD re-release show at the UKULA store on College St. in Toronto on November 9 according to their MySpace site.

I've been wondering whether British Sea Power would be playing a Toronto date soon ever since finding out they're gonna be playing Montreal on November 13. Word over at Chromewaves(check the comments) is that British Sea Power will be in Toronto for a show at Lee's Palace on November 15. The info is confirmed at the band's booking agent Ground Control Touring.

chartattack have a positive review of The Killers show at Kool Haus on October 20. Best quote to describe the crowd onhand: "As giddy high-schoolers stood shoulder to shoulder with lumbering rock jocks, the stench of Axe body spray and cheap beer was thick in the room." I'll admit that The Killers have some half-decent songs for when I'm in that big-venue-rock-band type mood and their current single "When We We're Young" has just about the best sounding combination of rock guitar/bass guitar/drums I've heard of any song all year. The band'll be performing "When We Were Young" on Letterman tonight.
