Canadian west-coast roots/folk duo Jon and Roy perform tonight at the Alix Goolden Hall…. sold out.  In front of the concert, they stopped by The Zone @ 91-3 for a live performance.  They lay down “Vibrant Scene” from the album Let It Go.  Then they dive into a cover of David Bowie’s “The Man Who Sold The World.”

Go with yourself.

Music Festival in Washington State.  Vancouver’s fuzzy hyper-blogged about Japandroids and Victoria’s  ice cool and atmospheric Jets Overhead.  Neat-O gang.  Thank you for downloading my podcast.

DJ Notes

01) Class of ’84 – “Sick City”
02) Dan Politano – “Maybe”
03) Japandroids – “Art Czars”
04) Jets Overhead – “No Nations”

This party gets started with some new punk rock.  Classic sound, straight ahead, new band.  Class of ’84.

I had trouble tracking down a website for them (turns out there is an Irish band with the same name).  Whatever, Myspace is not punk rock.  This picture IS punk rock.

SWAGed from Jono's Facebook page. Class of '84 at the Quadra House.

Dan Politano, its been awhile friendo.  After the punk, we calm it down for another alt-lite from the Sidney, VI rocker (are you from Sidney Dan?).

Today (or I guess yesterday) the Ear Candy blogged leaked the Sasquatch festival line-up.  Today it was official so I thought I’d include a couple CRC darlings to end the podcast.

Japandroids are Terminal Rock City’s fuzz heroes and one of THE MOST BLOGGED ABOUT BANDS!  Whoa, I iz helper them.

“Art Czars” is part of the Japandroids 2010 7″ singles series.

Download it for free! (I did, TWICE)

Czars totally sucked… but I think history will judge Soviet Russia as worse… so….

They *might* also be talking about the village in Alberta… which would be mighty, but doubtful.  (hmmm, now I kinda want to go there.)

This tight little podcast ends with Victoria journeymen (and women) group, Jets Overhead.  Jets rocked the Bonnaroo last year, Coachella later and now Sasquatch in May!  Our growing little army of Island invaders will all need to make a date to converge at whatever stage they are at when they play and burn one down for them.  So great.

Thank you for rocking the Zone and for choosing my podcast.  You totally rule and Russian Czars totally suck (but they suck less than Soviet Communism!  COLD WAR WIN!)

Go with yourself.

My staycation be damned!  You’re getting a podcast.  The reason I was jazzed to come into the Capital Rock City studio so late on a Monday night was to share with you an interesting find.  My wife, Coral, was digging through some old boxes and found a burned copy of Vancouver band In Medias Res’ first ever rock show.  They performed “Best Kept Secret,” which is a crushingly great song.  Vince Vaccaro sent in a demo he is working on and the show ends with some harder rock from Black Hat Villain and new music from Great White Shark. Thank you for downloading my podcast, share it with a friend.

DJ Notes

01) In Medias Res – “Best Kept Secret (Live)”
02) Vince Vaccaro – “Dawson City Anthem (Demo)”
03) Black Hat Villain – “My Generation”
04) Great White Shark – “There’ve Been Times”

When I first got into radio many moons ago, I had an indie rocker program on CiTR in Vancouver and my first paid gig was a place called CFUN.  CFUN was a groovy AM radio station back in the Paleolithic era, but by the time I was there it was basically the a place for infomercials, Dr. Laura and ghost stories at night.  My job was to punch a button or two every thirty minutes and for that I was paid the princely sum of $8 and hour.  The best of times.

I did this while attending broadcasting school at BCIT where I knew a guy named Ash Poon.  He applied for a job at CFUN and the boss man asked if I knew Ash and if he would make a decent worker… I said basically, “well he’s not meth addict… I don’t think,” and he was hired.  It also turned out that Ash was in a new band with a very progressive post rock vibe called In Medias Res and one day he left me a CD of a demo that they put together from a live show to play on my radio show or maybe it was to book a concert at the John B. Pub… either way, that CD survived and you are hearing my all time fave IMR song, “Best Kept Secret,” from their first ever love show… at a church I think?  At the beginning of the podcast you hear Ash about to say “all honour to the builder,” but he isn’t sure the mic is hot and yeah, it didn’t start with the bang that I am sure a young Mr. Poon would have liked.

The old CFUN splitter I lifted from Radiowest.
