Last night was the first meeting of the newly inaugurated Victoria Record Club.

If you love vinyl or think one day you might… or like hanging out with music nerds… join the group!

Not sure how many of us packed down a used shopping bag of vinyl to Talk’s Cheap on Pandora Street… but I’d imagine there were about 12 or 13 of us standing around awkwardly in Tiemen’s store.

I met a music blogger named Michelle and wanted to share her blog with you: Eh B Sea Sides

By some accounts, it was kinda fun… so we’ll do a second meeting in October.  Can’t wait.  I already know what record I am going to bring. But shhhhh… its a secret b/c I am going to buy it for Coral.

***

Rifflandia starts tomorrow! ahhhhhhhhhh

Have you checked out the schedule to draft your map or zig-zags around the beautiful Capital of British Columbia to see your favourite bands and discover new ones?

I will be broadcasting from Market Square all afternoon tomorrow as the bands roll in to set up and sound check.  Then at 7PM I am free to party (probably, need to see if Nana will watch Mads… or else Coral is free to PARTY! and I’ll be watching Parenthood on my PVR  and colouring).

Having Coral in tow does change my idea a bit of what I want to see.  I am interested in the punk rock going down Thursday at Rehab, but Coral is probably not as inclined.  She hasn’t seen the magazine yet, so this all subject to change… by her… but here’s my dream plan:

Thursday

7:30 Sunday Buckets – Market Square
8:30 Acres of Lions – Club 9one9
9:30 We Are The City – Club 9one9

*maybe grab some food or a cocktail at Veneto, or some noodlebox or something to sustain me*

11:30 JFK (MSTRKRFT) – Touch Lounge

Conversely… I could stay at Market Square all evening… or stay at Club 9one9 and be happy.

If Coral is feeling some more aggressive rock, I’d love to hit Rehab.

Sadly, I have to work Friday and Saturday (DJing at Veneto if anyone Rifflandia-ing needs a time-out, come see me for a cocktail). I might sneak to a 7:30 show… or join the party at 1AM if people are still out and about.  Razer (Acres of Lions) and Scott (Dojo Workhorse) … I’m looking at you.

Sunday… maybe Ball Gag and Chain Gang at Club 9one9 then Big Muff… then fly over to Lucky Bar to see DJ Siclife then back to Club 9one9.  Sunday depends on childcare/money/energy for sure.

It’ll be fun!

What’s your plans and where should I meet you for cocktails?

Its been awhile since I shared some emails and today I got a couple nice ones.

***

The first email is from Jessica talking about the Matt Good/Mother Mother concert last week.

Hey Jeremy!
The concert on Saturday was really good! It was my second time seeing Mother Mother and I was sad they only did 6 songs…it was a very short opening act! In the intermission there was so many people who had never heard them and all bought there CD’s because they were so impressed!

It was a first seeing Matt Good but, he was awesome!! Apparently, people were upset that he was only on for an 1hr and 15. I thought it was a good length though!
On that note! I’d love to hear one of these songs if you get a chance!!
Mother Mother – Touch Up

Thanks a bundle!

I was trolling Mike Devlin’s Facebook the other day, and the founder of the The Zone, a gentleman named Al Ford, posted a picture of Jerry Cantrell (Alice in Chains) on his site.  The concert was from 1990 I think, at Harpos (where Upstairs is now).  AiC played with the beginnings of Pearl Jam (some band named after a basketball player), and a group from Victoria (name I can’t recall).

JerryCantrell

What a rad picture.  Al has all sorts of great Victoria rock and roll memorabilia.  Makes me wish I had done a better job collecting over my years as a broadcaster and indie rock hipster.

I talked about this picture on my radio show the other day and got some of it wrong.  More fun facts emerge from Troy.

Jeremy,
I have to help you out a little on your comment on Jerry Cantrell earlier.

Yes the club was Harpo’s in Bastion Square where the club something or other “… Upstairs” is located now.

The band name you tried to recal was Mookie Blaylock. Another pre-Pearl jam played there as well during that same era under the name Green River featuring Mark Arm later of Mudhoney fame plus Jeff Ament and other Pearl Jam members. I didn’t live here at the time but might I suggest that perhaps you confused the two groups?

At any rate you’re the best DJ on the zone and a decent bloke. We met when my old band was band of the month back a few years ago and you were a very genuine guy. So with that in mind please play some Visqueen sometime, like Hand Me Down from Message To Garcia, the kids will dig it.

TN

Visqueen?

DJ Notes

01) No Don’t Stop – “Bleached Bones”
02) Sunday Buckets – “Aftermathmatics”
03) A Trophy Life – “Samsonite (I Was Way Off) [live]”
04) A Trophy Life – “New Song [live]”

I was hoping to have JP Maurice on the show this week, but while I was away getting hitched in Vegas, he went and moved to Vancouver!  SWA?  The man did say he’ll try and make some time to hit the CRC studio sometime in and around Halloween.  So maybe CRC 78 or 79… or maybe 80?  Beggars can’t be choosers, so when he comes, he comes.

The show starts with a real interesting and dirty ditty from Cowichan Bay.  Jess is my kindred musical doppelganger spirit.  We have a similar taste in tunes and spend times late at night on twitter sharing music.  She sent me a heads up the band No Don’t Stop.

Sunday Buckets got their name from the days when they first came together.  They mostly had Mondays off work and would jam Sunday nights and drink beers… I guess by the bucket?

We’ll have a chance to see our October Band of the Month on Thursday, October 29th at Evolution night club.  Wear your costume!  Pay no cover, win prizes.

What the heck is “aftermathmatics?”

The show ends with some acoustic rock and roll from The Zone’s September band of the month, A Trophy Life.  ATL is currently in Ontario doing a tour of malls.  Fun.

That’s all I got this week.  Next week?  hmmm… maybe I should drag Double R into the studio with a few pints and we’ll tear into Double R’s new record “Starting Today?” What say you Ryan?

Go with yourself.

DJ Notes

01) Saul – “Its Never Enough”
02) Hollydene – “Friday, I’m In Love”
03) Sunday Buckets – “Man in the Moon”
04) Day In The Life – “Where’s Your Imagination”

OK Saul fans, is it time that David got that second armed all tattoo’d up or what?

In 1992, The Cure released their 9th studio album, Wish.  One of their most endearing singles from that album was a track called “Friday I’m In Love.”  Hollydene covered it.

Last Saturday, I went to a hall party at the James Bay Rugby Club.  All the fine lovelies running around the party had the Sunday Bucket’s album blaring.  Great album.  The song I chose this week for CRC is one of their slower cuts, but it stood out for me when I placed the record on while getting ready for my radio show the other day.

The final track from this week’s Capital Rock City comes a band I think is a Jesus Rock Band?  They have that Christian vibe about them, the song I played on Capital Rock City is about not trying to figure stuff out… and having faith.  Sure, whatever helps you sleep.  DITL sent me a music video for this song.  Very DIY.  The band gets top marks for tenacity, but if rock stardom or heck… even heavy play on Christian radio is their goal, then they’ll want to think about putting more effort (or hiring someone) to record and edit their videos and music.  Coupled with the fact that I wanted to find their website to link for you and couldn’t.  or find the video on youtube for you to enjoy and couldn’t means…  I dunno… that is just weird.  Change the band name to something more unique?  Get your friends to hit your sites more so it pushes up on the google machine?

Final verdict on DITL, rough around the edges…

oh, found the video.

That’s all I got.  Off on a little vacation next week so CRC 71 will be a day or two late.  Thank you for downloading the show and taking a minute or two to read my ramblings.

Go with yourself.
