For the benifit of Mr. Couch

Via our suggest a story [mbv].

Typically we don’t do event listings type things here at Metroblogging Vancouver. Each author only blogs about what they tend to like themselves, so if I’m not interested in a concert I’m not going to write about it. The story behind this Saturday’s show at the Cobalt was worth a mention though. To quote the submitted story, “Some friends have offered to donate their time, energy, and talents to help raise some cash to pay the evil bastards who are holding my things for ransom.”

Ah yes the old, “Our friends’ furniture is being held by the moving company, let’s have a benifit concert!” angle. Clever. The benifit concert is of course how we ended poverty, world hunger and vampireism. The line up of the bands at the show below. Don’t worry I haven’t heard of any of them either.

Bands performing; * The Roothless Mayhem Band (blues) * The Girls Of The Taboo Revue (tassles and shaking) * The Slickjacks (psychobilly) * The Likely Rads (crusty punk) * Drugs (punk) Door prizes of artwork donated by Wendythirteen (of The Cobalt) and Mr. Chi Pig (SNFU)

    Wow, what a great cause. So much more important than climate change or AIDS and stuff. .

    I think it’s cute. It’s like something the Muppets would do to solve their problems and save their old theatre.
