Here’s the latest fix for all the rabid remix fans out there: Regina’s own Library Voices recently posted Vancouver artist Teen Daze’s take on “Traveller’s Digest” from the Voices most recent album, Summer of Lust. You can listen to it over here, but don’t go in expecting something lyric heavy. In fact, forget the words thing almost entirely. The most you’ll get from that department is a bit of a sampled line around the 3:30 mark, as far as I heard.
Library Voices have also announced a slew of shows, taking them down to the U.S. and also including a stint supporting Yukon Blonde that will take them through the Riddell Centre Multi-Purpose Room on April 20. It’s not our city’s best venue by any means, but it’s great to hear that Yukon Blonde will be making a stop here in support of their latest full-length, Tiger Talk, coming out on March 20.
Vancouver’s Said the Whale played that room when they came through opening for Tokyo Police Club, but are going some place new next time they’re through. Really new. Not the Creative City Centre or the Artesian, two of venues that have come around in the past while, but the Artful Dodger, a new performance venue/art space/whatever else that’s opening in the warehouse district in the spring. You can take a look at pictures of the space at their website. Forgive them the web design; it looks like they’re really busy right now.
Said the Whale are playing there on April 23, a show that will no doubt include some songs off their new album, Little Mountain, out March 6. Also scheduled to play the Artful Dodger: Rococode on March 29. I’m pretty sure Greg “G-Beat” Beatty will be telling you all about them in his review of their latest album, Guns, Sex and Glory, in tomorrow’s prairie dog.
Finally, Rah Rah’s Erin Passmore is opening for Chic Gamine tonight at the Exchange. It’s part of the Regina Folk Festival Concert Series, which run on time and draw out a big audience, so be punctual if you’re planning on going. Passmore’s gearing up to put out her debut solo release, Downtown EP, late in February. Expect to hear on that from the prairie dog closer to then.
