As I am writing this, the computer is converting the podcast audio recording for editing (which ultimately won't be edited tonight). The new episode will be posted this Friday, 11/11/11.
I have some bad news, if you've subscribe to our weheartmusic.mypodcast.com feed, you may want to update it to weheartmusic.podomatic.com, as mypodcast will cease all operations come 12/1/2011:
Well, I knew it wouldn't last, so if you have a favorite episode, I suggest you download it now, or get old archive shows at archive.org
I've spotlight Pat Jordache's album, Future Songs today, as I'll be seeing him play with tUnE-yArDs this Saturday. He's still got this whole month on tour, so it should be a great way for anyone to see glorious Canada!
On the podcast, we mentioned where we'll be at this week:
11/11/11: Vu will be seeing the wonderfully-named Rachael Yamagata at the Fine Line Cafe in Minneapolis. Hope to see a good crowd there. I recently got a note from her people saying that she's sold out a ton of shows, including Boston, Washington DC, Baltimore, Northampton, Brooklyn, Pittsburg, Los Angelese, and New York. Also, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim comes out Friday. Vu will be losing sleep playing the game.
11/12/11: Sally will seeing a free show at The Lansdowne Hotel, featuring Peabody, Betty Airs, Go/No Go, New Brutalists.
11/12/11: Vu will be seeing Deer Tick, Guards, and Thomas Hardy (of the Dead Confederate) at Triple Rock Social Club and Pat Jordache and tUnE-yArDs at First Ave. Should be a fun (and busy) night. By the way, I don't know if it's actually his real name or based on the famous and depressing writer, Thomas Hardy. I've read most of his books, my favorite is Tess of the d'Urbervilles (which incidentally, a band call the d'Urbervilles took their name from... but they've changed it to something lame like Matters).
11/13/11: Sally won't be able to make it to Harvest Festival. It looks like it takes place on a farm from the looks of things.
11/13/11: Vu won't be able to see Lykke Li, despite his self-confessed love for the lady. She's playing at First Ave. On a Sunday.
And there you have it: our music week. Next week is up in the air, I know it's Thanksgiving weekend... which means BLACK FRIDAY! Stay tuned!
