Here at L-T-D, we’re getting way excited about the upcoming Jay Vons 45! Cause for celebration, right? Right. Therefore, it was only fitting that we got the boys out west for a trio of release parties!
First stop? Seattle!
The Jay Vons jet-set into Sea-Tac this Thursday to play The Sunset with their friends Red Jacket Mine (fresh from their appearance at this year’s B’shoot) and The Tripwires (ex and current YFF, Model Rockets, and Mudhoney). Event details here.
Where to next? Friday night in Vancouver for a very specal edition of the East Van Soul Club:
For the ever-attending choir, ‘scuse us while we preach to the unconverted: September EVSC events go off like roman candles. And that’s without the double whammy of having The Ballantynes and The Jay Vons kicking the night off on Friday the goddamn 13th! TGIF, indeed. All the details are here. With school back in session and student loans being spent indiscriminately, this one is going to pack out early.
Finally, the event that got the whole ball rolling: this year’s edition of Rifflandia!
Now in its sixth (!) year, Rifflandia is taking place in venues across Victoria, BC, Thurs Sept 12-Sun, Sept 15th. Boasting an eclectic roster that includes Courtney Love, Big Boi, Edward Sharpe, DFA, and The Orb (for all you dancing types), this year’s fall classic continues to challenge the notion of Victoria’s rep as “home of the newlywed & nearly-dead” The Jay Vons headline our Saturday night showcase over at the Event Center. For those of you with wristbands or night passes: honestly, and without hyperbole, get down to the VEC earlier than later. This spot will have a line up down the stairs before you’re two beers deep. Special thanks to the folks at Atomique Productions for their care and support of this night!
It’s safe to say there’ll be a two day hangover in the wake of this one, so we’ll pair up those JVs pre-orders with the Maniac pre-orders and start getting them out to Singles Club Subscribers starting on Tuesday, Sept 17th.
We’ll check in with you all then as well…lots more news coming down the pike….until then!
