The Besnard Lakes @ Call the Office

Polaris Prize nominees the Besnard Lakes are at Call the Office tomorrow night. If you are in or near London, you should strongly consider going for the following reasons:

1. The show is $7 bucks through

2. They have released one of the most overlooked CDs of the year, according to Pitchfork. This is a terrific chance to see them in a small venue before they takeoff.

3. If you trust my judgement, The Besnard Lakes Are The Dark Horse, is one of my top 3 albums of this year to this point, and their live show is better than the album.

4. If you like both Led Zepplin and the Beach Boys, why not a band that sounds a little like both (see "Disaster").

5. In the words of my good friend of mine, "Look at that shirt. Look at that shirt! LOOK AT THAT SHIRT!"
