Busy time in Northern Electric land. Pointed Sticks in town recording and lots of great shows — tonight Spoon River headlines Moonshinin Music Fest in Langley (the video above is from last week’s great show at The Fairview), The Enablers (Modelos/Bughouse 5) are playing Falconetti’s for a filming of Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives TV show, The Mike Van Eyes are playing the Yale both tonight and tomorrow night — and next week it doesn’t let up with the kick-off of “Kozmik Kabaret” Sept. 1st at The Kozmik Zoo with both Reno Jack The Bear and Mike Van Eyes, plus the Nervous Fellas also at The Zoo on Saturday night, Sept 3rd with very special guest Minimalist Jug Band. Also on Sept 1st in Victoria, David P. Smith and Scott Henderson perform as Tool & The Eel with Eugene Chadbourne (playing the Kozmik Zoo Sept 5). International Pop Overthrow is also trying to get glam sensations Hello Polly to join their Saturday night finale (also Sept 3) – just trying to confirm that these jet-setters are all in town. Later in the month Flatback plays the Kozmik Zoo and David Newberry visits the Royal City for a show.
