I remember seeing the skyline one on the merch table and thinking "wow, I cannot pull that off."

I also bought one of the sparkly skyline shirts!
I now wear neither of mine except to bed, because I currently believe size large unisex tshirts are the devil, though am too wracked with guilt to attack either with scissors and cleverness to make them wearable.

So if this job comes through and I'm solvent again I should buy tickets to the show next month, right? Because I bristle at $50 tickets but that sounds a little more reasonable in euros at least.

I was doing so well at ignoring this but I saw all these posters today and the ghost of christmas pat keeps chanting pavement pavement

Are any of those by chance Frank's and mine?  If so, how much do we owe you?

Yes indeedy they are! I'll check w/ M how much you owe--probably about 65 but I'm not sure w/ fees and stuff?

M said the person at the box office told her that 500 of the 1400 available tickets sold in the first five minutes. Crazy! I hope S. Jamz is able to get a ticket. I offered to pick one up for him, but he hasn't called back.

2morrow!
Last night!

So, this show was on Centre Island, which is a park on a small island about a ten minute ferry ride from Toronto's harbourfront. It is very pretty. And, in spite of the fact that the forecast was calling for thunder and showers, the weather was beautiful.

It was, technically, Broken Social Scene's big summer show, which they do more or less yearly, and generally on the island. I turned up in time to hear Band of Horses, who did a fine job. The lead singer dude, when he was doing the "give it up for all the other bands" thing, noted that Pavement were his favourite band ever and that "if it weren't for Pavement, I probably would have graduated high school". High praise indeed. But remember that, because it will become important later.

Broken Social Scene did their thing, as they do, with their members changing by the song and their numbers going from a small of seven or eight up to a big of probably nearly twenty people on stage. I guess pretty much the whole band was there, including Ms. Feist and Ms. Haines. Also, guest spots by John McEntire from Tortoise, who produced their album and drummed on several songs, and by Spiral Stairs, who sang on one song and played guitar on another. And Broken Social Scene were at their messy best, mostly very good with some moments of transplendance.

Then Pavement played last. They did a long show and covered all the bases. I was quite happy. At one point they called Kevin Drew up to sing a song with them, and Kevin brought the Band of Horses guy with him, and somebody else who I didn't recognize. This was maybe the best part of the show, because even from a hundred feet away I could tell that the Band of Horses guy very, very clearly was not exaggerating when he said Pavement was his favourite band ever, and that his getting to sing backup for them valadated his whole live. Seriously, seeing a thirty-year-old bearded tattooed freak looking like a ten-year-old at his birthday party is fun to behold.

Anyway, yes, they played long and well. We jammed before the encore because the downside of a sold-out island show is that you can't just file out, you have to wait for ferries to take you back to town and the ferry schedule isn't really designed to accommodate everybody leaving the island at once. But the last couple songs sounded nearly as good from the boat.

Is Centre Island the one with thousands of friendly rabbits? And someone selling sandwiches?

"Stop Breathing" is an astonishing and amazing closer - "here's a ridiculous downer, thanks for coming out"
