I read an alarming article on Pitchfork earlier about Final Fantasy (aka Owen Pallett) being denied an Ontario health insurance card since he couldn't legally prove his Canadian residency for the required minimum of 153 days over the past year. Fortunately, the NDP came to his aid and are currently trying to rectify this atrocity. Maybe Michael Moore can help too. Click here for the full story.
Lots of show news to discuss/correct:
According to concert organizers Live Nation, Van Halen's May 3rd concert at the MTS Centre was announced prematurely and they aren't coming...yet. Sorry VH enthusiasts.
The Matthew Good Band is not coming. Matthew Good is coming with his band. Oops.
Rory Block's March 4th show at the West End has been canceled.
K.D. Lang's June 6th show at Pantages is sold out.
Not the happiest of blog posts today...
Current rotation: Josh Ritter - The Historical Conquests of Josh Ritter
