Clocking in at over 5.5 hrs on 2 DVDs, “Doot Doola Doot Doo …. Doot […]

    I have in my dirty little hands the DVD of the year. Well, it’s technically in my DVD player, and my hands aren’t really that dirty… I have an advance copy of the “NARDWUAR THE HUMAN SERVIETTE’S “DOOT DOOLA DOOT DOOT” DVD!” There’s a load of Evaporators footage, including the excellent video for “Half Empty […]

    I tried NOT to do it….

    by  • 1/2/2006 • live music, music • 0 Comments

    I honestly tried to avoid doing one of those yearly lists, but I felt that I needed to give a couple options that exist well outside of the mainstream, accepted lists. Most of my choices will likely exist on no other lists anywhere that recall the albums and music from the 12 months of 2005.

    Toying with Google Maps…

    by  • 12/28/2005 • geek, life, live music, Vancouver • 1 Comment

    Tomorrow we’re planning on signing a year’s lease on a place in a neighbourhood that I didn’t really intend of renting in; Gastown. Specifically, this place is very nearly at the intersection of Powell, Water, Alexander, and Carrall. If you’ve been to Vancouver as a tourist you’d know this place, because you likely have a […]

    Jello Biafra & The Melvins Play Vancouver

    by  • 11/6/2005 • live music • 2 Comments

    Ani Kyd, DOA, Jello & The Melvins played the Croatian Cultural Centre November 3, 2005, and there was a surprising lack of general mayhem. Oh, there was much marijuana smoke in the air, so the fact that there was no beer for sale didn’t seem to put much of a damper on the punks in the crowd who were in need of getting fucked up….

    Stealth Concerts

    by  • 10/25/2005 • live music • 0 Comments

    Sometimes I find out about a show from the artist’s page well before I catch wind of it locally. I found the November 3rd, 2005 show featuring Jello Biafra & The Melvins on the Alternative Tentacles web site, but am still unable to find much information on the show anywhere else online. The Vancouver show […]

    Hanzel und Gretyl Interview November 15, 2004

    by  • 8/16/2005 • live music • 0 Comments

    It’s not an easy one to transcribe, as there’s a lot of cross-talk between Loopy and Vas. Ana and Mark kick in on every so often, but not often enough, because Ana’s rather funny. (‘I don’t think your band’s name means what you think it does; it means “sweater”‘ — in reference to a band […]

    Punk Rock Vancouver Film Festival

    by  • 6/5/2005 • life, live music, music • 1 Comment

    One of the local free weekly papers; The Terminal City Weekly; decided to put together comething of a mini film festival focusing on Vancouver’s music scene. They kept it pretty short, but did put out a pretty decent program, which I’m quoting from pretty heavily below; if it’s in a quoted block it’s from the […]
