Joe Lally Monday night!


Hmm - here's a gig you might not know about: Fugazi bassist Joe Lally is playing Monday night at the Gaff Gallery (684 East Hastings). Some samples of his music on Myspace - sounds pretty cool! Opening bands include Capillary Action (from DC) and Shearing Pinx. And I'd wanted to stay home and write! Shit!
Thanks to Peter for the heads up...

Allan here, commenting on mah own blog...

...just to note: real bad idea to start a gig at 11PM on a worknight, folks. That's when Shearing Pinx went on (and as much as I like the Her Jazz Noise Collective, I found Pinx' sloppy no wave recidivism less than necessary). I'm told (by Stocktaking on the Nomeanswhatever forum) that Capillary Action were particularly exciting, but I didn't even make it that far - I'd arrived around 8:30 and sat around for over two hours, and the prospect of returning home at 2 AM - negotiating the downtown eastside wilderness and trying to catch a bus, after most have stopped running - just didn't appeal to me... I would have liked to have seen Lally play, but fuckit.
