I AM DEVASTATEDDDDDDDDDD
The lovely skeleton lady featured in this blog's header is none other than the wonderful Scout Niblett (http://www.myspace.com/scoutniblett). I hate descriptions like this but just to give you an idea, her sound reminds me of a cross between Bjork and old Cat Power. She's an absolutely fantabulous musician and she seems just totally badass. See:
Anyway, regarding my devastation: my parents booked me a flight to Vanocuver at the end of June to come visit again. That's awesome and I can't wait. But yesterday I was at Into The Music, with Andrew and I saw a poster for a show: A SCOUT NIBLETT SHOW. And it's happening on the evening after I leave :( :( :( :( Woe is me. The show would have been awesome for a few reasons:
-It's Scout Niblett.
-None of my friends (that I know of) are into her or have ever even heard her so I would probably either go alone or drag one of them along.
-To elaborate on the second point: most likely, nobody I know would be there so it won't be this big annoying scenester event. Not that I don't LOVE those but, it would be a nice change.
If anyone from Winnipeg does happen to love Scout, here are the details:
