I'm still debating whether to attend the full weekend.

In other show news...

Andrew WK returns to these parts, playing a gig at the Albert on June 28th. Strangely, his phone number is plastered all over his MySpace page, so if you feel inclined to chat with the man, now is your chance. Assuming it's a real number of course.

The Vibrators are at the Albert on June 26th w/ Farler's Fury.

Punk-poppers Blink 182 have included a Winnipeg date in their mammoth-sized tour - they'll be at the MTS Centre on August 2nd . Sadly, Weezer - who are opening(!?) for the recently reunited Blinkers during a good chunk of their tour - are not coming.

Progressive metal act Dream Theater rock the Burton Cummings Theatre on August 16th w/ Zappa plays Zappa, Pain of Salvation, and Beardfish.

And finally, a friend sent along this creative and hilarious indie-game the other day (via CatBirdSeat), a fun, innocuous little way to kill some time between bands at a show. While the beer types need to be Canadianized, the rest of the squares should be possible to spot at any given indie event in The Peg.

What would the Canadian beer equivalents be?

WOW, that is a jam-packed Friday night. I was planning to buy a full weekend pass, but I thought Josh Ritter, I&W and Neko would be spread out a bit I'm not sure if I should go the whole weekend or not!

Alexander Keith's India Pale Ale, for sure.
