Music news, music news, music news…

Trying hard to come up with something original but alas no dice so here is some regurgitated info that you may or may not care about:

1. Indie fav’s Endangered Ape, Los Cremators and The Pine Tarts are doing an Alberta Boom tour which looks to be the best thing to happen to Alberta since the tar sands. Seriously, its going be freakin’ awesome. Playing at The Palomino in Calgary on the 5th with Thee Thems, label mates of The Sharp Ends and Hazard Lights. (thanks for the Facebook friend request guys!) , Hooliganzing it in Edmonton on the 6th with The Wicked Awesomes (who are very true to their name) and ending off in Lethbridge at The Slice. Amongst the 100 983 848 999 reasons to go to these shows, the 100 983 848 998th reason is the chance to pick up an Alberta Boom compilation ON TAPE. Yah, that’s freakin’ right. And you though 7inches were indie? F that noise.Full of good old fashioned Alberta indie, this tape will get you laid faster than a Delorean.

For more info on the tour, Endangered Ape and being awesome in general check out E Ape’s blog…Its full of nerdy music good times.

2. Speaking of 7 inches and The Wicked Awesome’s….I just nabbed their 7inch split with Montreal brothers from another mother O Voids at the Lethbridge show at The Zoo. Its freakin’ sweet as all get out and the album cover art is prime A quality. Check out how to order this this gold star split from Seven Ten Twelve.

3. Chinese Democracy finally happened.

4. CBC Radio Three did myself and an excellent friend of mine a huge solid with some free Martha Wainwright Tix for the Calgary show this Sunday. That’s right boys and girls; me and a Wainwright. What an intimate affair.
