Storm Crow

Last week, Taylor invited be to the Storm Crow Alehouse on Broadway to hang out with her and Stark.

We chat about the crazy puzzle game on the back of the Storm Crow coaster, nerds, Dungeons and Dragons, Stranger Things, my controversial hot take on James Corden.  Good times!

Go with yourself.

Aquilo is the super chill duo from the super chill village of Silverdale, which looks to my ignorant eyes…as a town in a park in England? Must be nice.

I’ve blogged about these bros before, I like their soft sounds.

New song is called “You’re Like Me.”

Today is a perfect one in Vancouver. I went to Storm Crow Alehouse on Broadway to tape an episode of their podcast. My walk into the city after was glorious.

I’ll let you know when the podcast goes live and maybe you’ll throw it a listen for me? We yap some Dungeons and Dragons, Stranger Things, James Corden, Pokemon, beer.

Go with yourself.

Brooklyn’s Augustines have a new record for us in June called This Is Your Life.

Today they sent over a new listen off the upcoming record called “When Things Fall Apart.”

This follows an earlier song called “Are We Alive.”

They have a show in Seattle, but no Vancouver date.

July 30th – The Crocodile – Seattle

I am so happy today! A few years ago now, I ordered these adorable cassette bookmarks from some website. Cheap…like $6 for the three. I used them but over time they drifted away. I had one left and my son wrecked it.

But then…my wife fixed the broken one, we found another in an old book that my son had pulled out of the bookshelf and Coral tracked the third down!  Three moves, still have all three. Weird, wonderful.

Go with yourself.

Canadians are amped on the census this year. So many Canadian are filling it out, it actually crashed the government website!

I wanted in on the fun, so I filled mine out.

Better Call Becky with the good hair….

 Beyonce released her 6th album on Saturday night. It began with an HBO special for her visual album. On the record Beyonce is dealing marital breakdown, infidelity, sadness…and then reconciliation, healing and empowerment. There is a lot going on with the record sonically.
Also a huge selection of samples, features and guest writing credits… The song “Hold Up” has Beyonce riffing off an old Yeah Yeah Yeah’s lyric from their song “Maps”, that was changed up a tiny bit in a 2011 tweet from Ezra Koenig of Vampire Weekend.

One of her songs features the ferocious guitar of Jack White and a sample of Led Zeppelin. Check out “Don’t Hurt Yourself.” It’s a rock and roll jammer.

Go with yourself.

Big Alt Rock news today… Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam covers the Batman theme with his adorable 7-year-old daughter Harper. Now I’m not saying he copied my son Jack, but I will say he was clearly inspired by.

4/20 and Vancouver are like peanut butter and marshmallows. Yesterday was festive in the Terminal City as the entire suburbs emptied out to Sunset Beach to blaze.

It was a new venue from years past where it was traditionally held at the Art Gallery.

I guess a few folks didn’t check their emails…and went to the Art Gallery anyway.

Go with yourself.

And would you look at that…your friendly neighbourhood music blogging DJ is jamming a set on Thursday!

Tall Tree is called a “boutique” music festival….I guess. It’s a crazy time. If you can get to the West Coast of Vancouver Island at the end of June, do it! There ain’t many music festivals going like it.

When I walked into CFOX today, the music director Britters and producer Jamie were talking about the lineup. They both were excited to see Dirty Radio on the list. I wasn’t familiar.

Oh that’s fun, I can see how people will be able to get down to these guys on the side of Brown’s Mountain!

Like I said, the Festival is nuts. Hit Tall Tree’s instgram to see how they’ve captured the energy and vibes.

See you out there.
