Hello...It's me you're looking for? I can see it in your eyes. I can see it in your smile.

Ok, enough of Lionel Richie. Kevin had this turn with non-album tracks now it's time for BSS. That's right. 7 beautiful songs. Maybe some of you already have it (if you is so addicted as me and Chris), but maybe some of you don't have it. please those who haven't heard these beauties, Canaddiction presents Deathcock, Do the 95, a beautiful Paul McCartney cover (Every Night), Gods, Jimmy & The Photocall, Stars And Spit and Where's Your Heart. Enjoy!

Just one more thing...I'm so sorry for my poor english. I'm Borat's friend. He is now in Brazil discovering Amazonia. Kisses kisses.

I'm almost crying I haven't been there. Oh yes, if you always get up late you'll never be on time.
Considering 11-track-long sets, I could hardly imagine a better one (don't forget we're in 2004). Shampoo Suicide, Backyards, Looks Just Like The Sun and Pacific Theme live?! What is more, classics like Stars and Sons, Cause = Time and KC Accidental...WHAW!

Broken Social Scene + The Most Serene Republic 2005-12-16 La Maroquinerie, Paris

!!!WooHoo! This is the 21st post, whoo-hey, canaddiction is an adult! Yo!!!
As an addict to little gigs I mustn't forget to post this gig. Really, there were about 300 people at this show in Paris. That's the crazy thing about Europe: they don't come very often here :/ but when they finally come, it's a great great evening for the chosen few. I know...they deserve more people (even here) at their gigs, but, I can't help it, I absolutely adore these smaller ones.
This time they also had Leslie Feist onstage and The Most Serene Republic, another Arts&Crafts family member, as the opening band (btw highly recommended).

The Most Serene Republic

Broken Social Scene Presents: Kevin Drew - 2007-11-18, 9:30 Club, Washington DC

photo by Joel Didriksen for

Whoaaaaaa, a REALLY new stuff is what I've got for you today, as fresh as it goes.

What a Sunday, definitely not silent nor gray (no no kids, this is not turning into a Morrissey blog, no fear:). Just try to listen to the beginning of Lover's Spit and you'll see why I started like this. And when you're listening to this wonderful song, wait till it ends and please tell me what Kevin's singing at the very end of it. I'm trying to figure it out but I'm not really sure about it and I won't sleep before I find out :). There are more more things that just have to make you smile, like deciding where to continue playing Cause = Time after the power failure (ladies and gentlemen, this is the unique chance to hear BSS SINGING five notes of the solo, lol:))

I saw the guys in Vienna a month ago so this bootleg is all the more precious to me, I'm ssssooo very happy I've got this!
The guys are as cute as then, but the setlist is a bit different, we had Bodhi Sappy Weekend, Gang Bang Suicide (the very last song) and Hit The Wall from Brendan Canning's forthcoming album (he told us it's gonna be released in April 2008, wooo, I can't wait! The first song is stunning!) instead of It's All Gonna Break and the two covers (woooo, this is the battle of the indie rock bands!). Well (weeeeeeeeell!), I should stop talking, enjoy all this straight from them and discover more awwww-this-is-greaat moments.

You can listen to it here (haha, don't forget to read the advisory:).

Of course we won't leave you without a download link.
There you go, folks:
