Last week, both Geoff Lundstrom and Johnny Galactic stopped by The Zone (and Michael Wood Band) for live performances.

Geoff put down a nice cover of The Killers “When You Were Young.”

Before Johnny Galactic performed a song, Jon told this insane story of his girlfriend and the jungles of Brazil.

New music down the pipe from a couple Island artists (who might be living in Vancouver now?).

First…new music video from Johnny Galactic.

Rolla Olak checked in to share his alt-country jam.

Rolla Olak will be in the Nanoose Bay area for a show on October 5th with rising Island stars Towers and Trees. I *think* Jon Williams is MCing the event! No wait… he is MCing the Towers and Trees October 19th show at Canoe.

More local Victoria music for you.  Victoria’s Johnny Galactic have a new record out on November 26th called “Keep Off The Grass.”  Fricken hippies man.

Johnny Galactic lay down folky acoustic ballads….slow jams.  They have more than a couple that I like, but I think my favourite is “San Francisco Babe.”  Band features long time homeboy Adam Puritch (Armchair Cynics).

Simple, pretty music.

Damn, I am always cold lately.  My bones are cold.  weird…

Download: Capital Rock City #51

and remember kids, whenever you subscribe to the Capital Rock City podcast from the  iTunes store or RSS the program, Ryan Kesler scores another goal.

DJ Notes:

01) Johnny Galactic – “Pink Coat”
02) Vince Vaccaro – “Costa Rica”
03) Something Better – “She Said”
04) Hey Rosetta! – “Red Heart (live)”
05) Bosma – “My Self Removed”
06) Archon Legion – “Saviors of the Faith”

My friend Chucky sent me the music video last week for local rockers Johnny Galactic.  Catchy track, video is wonderfully DIY and who’s that on the bass gee-tar?  oh Aran from the Armchair Cynics.  neat.

Vince, god bless him… straight off some glorious reviews for his Juno Showcase in Vancouver last week… finds four seconds to read my drivel on this here blog and read that I wished I’d played “Costa Rica” on best of 2009 (so far) episode… so he emails me the track!  Thanks Vince!  My sister Andrea is not so much the indie rocker type, but she loves the track.

A couple episodes ago, I talked to a record engineer named Wynn Gogol about his studio One Ton.  One of his recent project was working with the band Something Better.  This week, the fruits of the labour.

Hey Rosetta! was out west last week for a Zone Show at Sugar Nightclub.  before the rock show, the boys stopped by my show and laid down this delectable gem, “Red Heart.”

Bosma writes in to the show; ” hey jeremy, here’s a tune for your podcast.  its a from a solo project of mine which can be found at myspace.com/bosmatunes.  its called “my self removed”.  kind of a garage-y sound but this is what i do when i’m not jammin with the 7 Year Old Poets. cheers mate.”

Reading my Monday Mag last week (the one about the Renovictions… featuring my old landlord! awesome.) and I came across a review for local metallers, Archon Legion.  I have been neglecting metal on ye ole podcast so I sent an email to the boys looking for  some songs to feature.  I am not as metal as Brodie for The Metal Observer, he has  a better review where he says:  “Overall, ARCHON LEGION sound like an incredibly inspired, and energetic band, but a young one at that. This means that “March Of The Inquisitors” is a very exciting album, if a few of the songs don’t hold up as well as others. The album is definitely worth it on the base of the stand out tracks though, and I personally can’t wait to see what else these guys have to offer on future albums.

Next week will either be:

Some more metal plus this band from Vancouver that Sara P found and likes or,

I *might* try and track down some old Morning After Show tapes and fave songs and create some sort of Morning After Show ten year somethingorother.  We’ll see how my work load shapes up next week.

That’s all I got, please download my show and share the link with a friend.

Come get some, the Best of 2009 (so far) on Capital Rock City #50.

Best enjoyed through your ears: Capital Rock City #50

and remember friends, the only way FOX News will take Canada seriously is if you SUBSCRIBE to Capital Rock City from the iTunes podcast section or RSS this bitch from the Zone dot FM.

DJ Notes:

01) Racoons – “Tangiers”
02) Vince Vaccaro – “The City at Sunrise”
03) Acres of Lions – “Working”
04) Justin Hewitt – “Close Your Eyes”
05) Jon & Roy – “What I Need”
06) Paper Cranes – “Telephone”


I don’t know what to write here except these are a few of my favourites.  Really, anything from most these bands could go in this space.  All the new Racoons, or Acres is amazing.  I just remembered Vince’s “Costa Rice” which is a shame, because I would have included that track in place of “The City at Sunrise” now that I think about it and hear it again on Vince’s MySpace.

Here is a pretty rad music video that Chucky shared with me.  The artist is Johnny Galactic and the song is “Pink Coat.”  Look out for my man Aran from the Armchair Cynics rocking the bass guitar!

whoa… while typing this, Mads took a header off the couch.  ahhh, Mom will get this one.

That’s all I got.  Please download my podcast and share the link with a friend if you dig it.
