BOITANO!  What did you do?  This is why breweries in Victoria can’t have nice things.

Many moons ago, Phillips Brewery, the Pride of Esquimalt, was kindly persuaded by a Vancouver Brewer to change the name of the very popular Blue Truck beer to Blue Buck.

It was a sad time in the history of Victoria, but like generations past, we moved on.  Yet the indecencies continue.  Sara P and Boitano were invited to the Phillips for a Fringe Festival Party.  Sara would not confirm exactly how many IPAs Boitano had in his belly, but the man himself admitted… a “few.”  FYI… If you are ever pulled over by a cop and he asks, “have you had anything to drink tonight?”  You never answer, “a couple,” or “a few” unless you enjoy having your car towed.  You need to give an actual number… I learned that from a Vancouver City Cop… right…

So Boitano drinks a couple and then has to use the washroom and BAM!  Runs through the new Blue Buck robotic mascot and completely murders it!  Will it ever end for Matt Phillips?

Boitano has this to say for himself: I bet the Blue Buck was already broken when I LIGHTLY bumped it and it fell! Either way…I’m sorry Matt Phillips! – @Boitano913

Talking alcohol, yesterday the twittersphere barfed when Rod Phillips (no relation to Matt) posted on his twitter an unbelievable deal.  Be one of the first 50 people to re-tweet his post and you could purchase a bottle of wine for just two bucks!

You know that mantra, “if its too good to be true, it probably isn’t true?”  Well throw that shit out the window, because last night, I drank a bottle of $2 Spanish wine! Then I finished off an old bottle I had kicking around… and drank a beer.  Huzzah to a mid week drunk!  Thanks Rod.

I NEED YOU!

Thank you for downloading and finding Capital Rock City… what I need now more than ever is an increase of downloads.  In fact, the goal is to multiply the audience by a factor of 10!  ahhh.  Scary goal, but required for the life of CRC to continue.  Please help me achieve this by sharing the Capital Rock City podcast with a friend.

Here is the Show: Capital Rock City 54

And remember folks, my march to 1,000 CRC downloads begins when you subscribe Capital Rock City from the iTunes music store, a free download in their podcast section, or RSS this baby direct from The Zone dot FM.

And while subscribing… the Polcast is marching to 1,000 side-by-side with CRC so please discover Pol Plastino’s most excellant and hilarious weekly.

DJ Notes:

01) Armchair Cynics – “Ablaze”
02) The Februarys – “Rock and Roll’s Enemy”
03) Fake Shark – Real Zombie! – “Angel Lust”
04) Hollydene – “Brick By Brick”
05) Closer to Four – “The Start of Our Decent”
06) Stephen Gittens One Lavish Intro – “Slap Oooooh!”

Double R (drums) and Adam (guitars) from the Armchair Cynics stopped by my show on Monday afternoon to share their brand spanking new single “Ablaze.”  You’ll hear it lots on the Zone and I think our friends at CFOX in Vancouver playing it too and Jimmy James at the Peak in Van is playing a new song… but a different single.. I think….  I better email him and find out which song he’s playing.  The point is, you’ll be hearing lots of new Armchair Cynics this summer and hopefully the boys will elevate their career this year! gooooooooo 2009!

When Coral and I first started dating in 2006, we went to a show at the Fernwood Community Center (or whatever that all-ager barn is called) and saw a band called The Februarys.  The band has continued to grow and now is signed by Wind-Up Records.  The new song is called “Rock and Roll’s Enemy” and you can see The Februarys this Friday with theset at The White Eagle Hall.

Pol Plastino turned me on to his friend’s band outta Langley called Fake Shark-Real Zombie!  I think these guys are fantastic and the story of their band name is well worth the price of admission.  I very groovy modern sound.

Hollydene dropped a record off at the Zone for Dave Sawchuk… I was intrigued so I stole it off his desk and had a listen.  Really good.  Wow, I was impressed.  I choose the song “Brick By Brick” for this week’s podcast, but next week I think there are some other songs worth your time.  I like.

Jess has a blog that I follow here at the Morning After Show and she shared an artist who she is championing.  read the story and enjoy the sounds.

Closer to Fours record chronicles his relationship with Jess (I think that is how the story goes).  They have since separated but remain close.  The first song is called “The Start of our Decent” which foreshadows how the relationship ends.  The song has a glorious build.  I love how this song ends.

Sara P’s better half? Mr. Stephen Gittens (ex Conversation) has been playing with some beat making and having some fun with his friend MC Lavish.  Um yeah…  The song is as it is.

Want to see the wondrous video I was watching during CRC 54? This clip inspired the band name for Fake Shark-Real Zombie!  here it is:

That’s all I got.  Today I begin my quest for 1,000.  please help me reach my goal and share this link with a friend…. or friends.

Go with yourself.

Capital Rock City #52 has been birthed and wants you so badly to download it… or him… or I guess her, download her.  sure.

Download and Love: Capital Rock City #52

and remember my friends, when you subscribe to Capital Rock City from the iTunes podcast section or RSS the program, the HMCS Winnipeg foils another batch of savage Somali pirates!

01) Eat The Weeds – In My Fading Memory
02) TV Heart Attack – A/O
03)
Oh Snap! – Involuntary
04) Jell – Pin Me Down
05) Cheers in the Belfry – Alcoholism
06) The Paper Cranes – I’ll Love You Till My Veins Explode

Gosh darn it, those kids in the Paper Cranes look down right adorable, and I recognize a couple from???… Tha Racoons!

Thank you to Miranda for taking the time to gossip about The Paper Cranes having a couple songs featured in a new MTV Canada Hills wannabe show?  alright then.  As blogged on Perez Hilton.

But this is getting ahead of ourselves, the interview with Miranda is at the end of the show.

I start CRC 52 with a surprisingly wonderful song from a performer that goes by Eat The Weeds.  I posted her story the other day on this here blog.

Sara P discovered this band from Vancouver, TV Heart Attack and wanted to share it on the podcast.

Oh Snap! used to be the band Sanijav which is Vajinas with a ‘J’ spelled backwards.  Yup.  So they changed their name and became the Zone Band of the Month.  See you at Evo on April 30th for showcase performance.

New Jell takes the band in a poppier direction.  If I remember, these boys used to have a more classic grungy sound.  But maybe I’m getting old and forget.

The Belfry is a performance space in scenic Fernwood… also the name of this Vic band that had spent some time in Montreal.  But now they are back jamming out their folksy alt rock.

and that’s that.  Please download my podcast and if you like it, please tell a friend.

Go with yourself.
