Thank you!


Before we all keel over, or figure out what day it is, there is a list of serious thanks to give:

First and foremost, the most massive of credit to all the bands who came by planes, trains and automobiles to make this weekend happen. You had us in tears of joy and stitches of laughter, and luckily neither of the other kind. You constantly remind us why we’re so lucky to have such a great excuse to pull our pals together.

To our unofficial mascot and the man who provided the unofficial sound track to not one, but TWO nights of FD/GD 2013, Russell Quan, we wish you could stay forever!

Our deepest appreciation to The Biltmore Cabaret, The Astoria, Neptoon Records and The Electric Owl for being so damn hospitable, accommodating and supportive all along the way! Our party was so lucky to happen within your walls!

A giant acknowledgment to our media partners for their coverage: The Georgia Straight, Citr, Beat Route and Skinny Magazine! We can’t wait to see all the photos we saw you snapping. Thanks for telling people they should care about anything we do at all.

ALSO a thunderous cheers to our sponsor Coal Harbour Brewing Company! Quenching thirsts well into Monday morning!

All the light and love to Not Just Religious Music and King Dude for the literal lengths they went to getting from Europe to the Roky Erickson show. You’ll always be part of our LA-TI-DA Family.

A huge thank you to all our volunteers who shuttled bands around, did door, and covered merch to keep things moving. We literally couldn’t have done it without you, and you did it just to be a part of it. That’s a beautiful thing, from you magnificent people.

Crowsnest crew, you know how much we love you.

Honestly, the sheer altruism, help and support that collectively pulled this off was humbling. We are so very grateful.

A couple day’s hibernation, it’s back to business. Jay Vons 45s and Ballantynes EPs on the way to your mailboxes. The last batch of releases right behind.

Don’t call it goodbye, call it until next year….

Tim, Vanessa, Corey, and Dale!

Fall Down/Get Down Schedule Update


















Hot on the heels of last week’s additions of King Dude, Two Towns, Bad Channels, The Gooeys, The Mandates, Korean Gut and Capitol6, we’ve got more good friends joining the fray! Jody Glenham joins the Lanalou’s bill on Nov 2nd! Chains of Love get back from tour in time to join the big Pointed Sticks farewell show on Nov 3rd!

We’d also like to thank Dandelion Records for joining our list of wristband vendors. Stoked to have them on board.

REMEMBER: there are no advanced tickets for individual events. Buy your wristband or come early!


FD/GD: The Schedule!



















So there you have it: a timetable staggered to keep you hopping around just long enough to empty those brown bags between venues, with little risk of missing much of the fun.

The easiest way to secure a wristband is through our online shopping cart. Forty bucks, no service charge, no muss, no fuss. Your name will be added to our will call list and you can grab your wristband the week of the event. Paypal balance, e-check and credit cards accepted.

For those of you who’d rather stick to cash, we will have tickets on sale tomorrow at Antisocial, Neptoon, Red Cat, and Zulu. These numbered tickets can then be exchanged for wristbands the week of the event. Basic.

For those of you who have already grabbed yours, we thank you. Pretty damn great to see such a large out of town contingent coming for this. Between the wtf-edness of bringing in Death for the Friday night and the poignancy of this being the Pointed Sticks last show on the Saturday, we are heading for a sellout.

So without getting all Willy Wonka about it, don’t sleep on this. Get a wristband this week. Remember that all wristbands come with a limited edition Pointed Sticks Christmas single: our way of saying thanks.

We’d like to once again thank our sponsors: The Georgia Straight, Steam Whistle Brewery, Beat Route Magazine, Color magazineCiTR, Budgie’s Burritos and Howard Johnson Kingsway.

Howard Johnson are offering a discount off their already ridiculously low room rates. Use the promo code “latida” for 10% off!

Speaking of 10% off, that’s what your wristband will get you at Neptoon Records all weekend long.

Don’t say we don’t take care of ya.
