have been busy the last week, catching up on Season 3 of Arrested Development (R.I.P.) as well as Season 7 of South Park.
Also been listening to some new cd releases the past week - Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Vines, Flaming Lips, Tegan and Sara...as well as a few used ones I've picked up including the Novaks.
On a somewhat related note, did anyone watch the Junos this past week. I watched to see just who won the "best Alternative" award - love all the bands nominated Hot Hot Heat, Metric, Tegan & Sara, The New Pornographers and of course BSS. Also got to see Broken Social Scene perform - outstanding!
For anyone who likes Arcade Fire, you owe it to yourself to check out Broken Social Scene, some great indie rock in the same vein as Arcade Fire. BSS are kind of like THE supergroup of Canadian indie music (members Feist, Stars, Metric, Treble Charger among others). I got a chance to see them live in a small club in Saskatoon recently and they put on quite a performance, i think they had 10 or 12 people crammed on a little stage up front.
