Published Jul 31, 2008When you live in a city that doesnt get a whole lot of attention from touring acts, its a huge treat when someone takes the time and effort to hit your city in between the major stops. Particularly in Canada, its special when someone is willing to hit up the prairies in between their Vancouver and Eastern Canada dates.
Better yet is when an artist understands that loneliness so completely that they eschew the rest of the country and play to the often forgotten cities. One such hero is indie rock heartthrob Stephen Malkmus, who, like the saint he is, will be taking his Jicks on a jaunt through Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba this fall before hitting up the Midwestern U.S. Portland-based folk rockers Blitzen Trapper will join him on all of the dates. Chalk one up for the little guy!
