EDIT/UPDATE: Of course, by "tonight", I mean TUESDAY NIGHT, JULY 22, MEDIA CLUB: SYLVIE.
Because even Olde Vancouver could use a little dose of New Regina on a Monday night, my favourite pack of Rider Priders is in town tonight for a little dose-do at the Media Club.
Why you should care: Sylvie is a beautiful band made up a beautiful people who make beautiful music. Their 2005 album, An Electric Trace was called "stunningly awesome" by no less authority than the Regina Leader-Post. With every new album, this band has improved by leaps and bounds, and every time I see them, I like them more. I haven't seen them in about two years, so they must be exceedingly awesome by now.
Why you should go see them tonight: They've just finished recording their new album with J. Robbins (Government Issue, Jawbox, Burning Airlines), due for release in October on Smallman Records. What that means is NEW SONGS. Songs you can't even hear on the internet. Unless you're reading this six months from now. In which case, you totally missed the show.
