Well how is this for some news? Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile are going on tour. But because this is just too awesome, no Vancouver date!  For shame.

I’ll have to plan ANOTHER roadtrip to Seattle or Portland in the fall (if the US hasn’t completely melted down by then and is still letting tourists visit).

10.20.17 – Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall – Portland, OR
10.21.17 – Moore Theatre – Seattle, WA
10.22.17 – The Showbox – Seattle, WA

Barnett talks about how she came about to working with Vile.

“In 2014 I scored a support slot opening for Kurt at the Abbotsford Convent [outside Melbourne]. We met briefly after the show but I was a bit nervous and didn’t wanna bother him, just grateful for the gig. Years later we started bumping into each other on the festival circuit all around the wide world and we became friends. He hit me up when he was coming to Melbourne next and said he thought we could work together.”

My friend Alix was cleaning out some old records the other day and asked if I’d make a good home for them. She has a good taste in tunes so I said, “ok.”

One of the records she dropped off yesterday, Explosions in the Sky‘s The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place.

A beautiful record.


I want to shout out to all the free radicals that check out the blog, “heart” some of the songs on Hype Machine, or throw me a “like” on Facebook.

I read this study on Nat Geo about how success breeds success… and those first few likes or attention can snowball to greater attention. The article might be worth your time if you’re in a band or any sort of attention industry.


Still loving Waters.


My man Pol was saying that Courtney Barnett was pretty choice on Jimmy Fallon last night. You should watch that.


Lastly, The New Arcades remixed Kyla La Grange’s “The Knife.”

There we go….
