Japandroids are back on the road

By Regina Sienra

Japandroids, the loud duo from Vancouver, have been pretty much missing in action since the end of the extensive world tour for Celebration Rock (2012), their second album. Guitarist Brian King and drummer David Prowse visited over 40 countries in a span of 21 months.

Without hints of any new release, and King moving to Mexico City, things have been quiet on the Japandroids front – until now. The band just announced an international fall tour that will have a stop in Toronto and a four-night residence at The Cobalt in Vancouver.

Is this a warm up for a new release? Let’s cross our fingers. Check out the tour dates below.

10.5 – The Cobalt. Vancouver, BC
10.6 – The Cobalt. Vancouver, BC
10.7 – The Cobalt. Vancouver, BC
10.8 – The Cobalt. Vancouver, BC
10.11 – The Echo. Los Angeles, CA
10.15 – Horseshoe Tavern. Toronto, ON
10.20 – Birthdays. London, UK
10.28 – Knitting Factory. Brooklyn, NY

0.29 – Knitting Factory. Brooklyn, NY
11.25 – Caradura. Mexico City, Mexico

  1. I wonder why Japandroids are forsaking a canadian tour?

    “oooh, look at us, we’re international now”

    I joke. They obviously know where to butter their bread.

  2. Mr. Godmere gets around, I guess. I saw him do a great Fringe play (which Emma stage-managed) in London a couple of years ago. He looked completely different than he does in this video.

  3. I met Emma G. in Regina because she was there on tour with her dad who was doing a Fringe show. I never met him, or saw the show however.

    Garf, Ok, I was just scribbling yesterday and (Y)OurBasement call for content popped into mind. Whatever you like.

  4. Hello and Good morning!
    Long day of fighting to keep my eyes open at meetings yesterday. How can that be so exhausting(boring)?
    It’s going to be warm and stormy later today. Plans for this evening include a Jim Bryson house concert : )

  5. @Tom, Thank you but this meant to be your basement as much as it is mine but this post was already planned for today and I have a playlist for tomorrow but I don’t know of any content planned for Monday

  6. I think meetings should be run by rules that make them efficient — get the stuff done. These do exist. It seems to me most meetings are “run” (they’re not, really) in such a way as to protect everybody’s feelings, etc. They go into endless back-and-forths, and unproductive meanders, etc. And nobody (except one or two people) likes it.

    From yesterday, the error message on the CBC music app when the music stops is “ERROR LOADING CBC RADIO 3”

  8. loweeda, I just read your recent post — in my mind — in the voice of Marvin the Depressed Robot. That ‘improves’ it.

  10. Hi Justin!

    Good day all! I have a lot of short work weeks this month. Three day work week this week. Tomorrow morning I am off to Winnipeg for Interstellar Rodeo and then drive back on Monday. Four day work week next week and then off to Cypress Hills camping trip. Woot!

  14. I’m sure some of you sports folks saw the news John Saunders (sportscaster ESPN) passed away yesterday at the age of 61. He was Tarp King’s defence partner at Ryerson. When he found out yesterday he was a little sad he had not talked to him in years. He made some calls and ended up talking to some of the Rams alumni he played with back then, there were a few John reminiscences.
    We talked this morning about how It is so much easier these days to stay in touch with folks.

  15. @Shonica – Along with the sad about the loss is the realization that it could be you. Keeping in touch is so much easier but we still get busy and think we will do it later. Sometimes later is too late. Sorry for Tarp King’s loss.

    He did mention that too. A bit of a theme around here these days, “We aren’t getting any younger, so let’s just do it.”

  17. Speaking of being too old for things, I started a new Minecraft game recently, and wrote down a little to do list of my immediate game priorities:

    - chicken coop
    - path to mine
    - mine storage
    - craft shield
    - collect cows
    - craft armour
    - more fishing
    - get redstone
    - create a map
    - tame a horse
    - go exploring
    

    A few items in I noticed a pattern that may or may not be apparent, depending on how blog comments are formatted. Now I’m in a bit of a jam; whenever I want to add something new to my list I have to find a way to express it in exactly 12 characters, or else it’s just not going to get written down at all.

  19. @loozerboy so the first item on your to-do list was the dividing line item on a to do list of my parents. the top part of the page was potential baby names and the bottom part of the list was chores for the farm caretaker to do when the not yet named child made their appearance. i had a most unfortunate name for the first six months of my life …

  20. @loozerboy mostly it just makes a good story. hippy parents who got letters from “the man” saying they had to fill out papers and name their kid. “but what is wrong with just calling her chicken coop?’

  21. You already know one of mine, DarBar. My mother tried to get people to call me Darli when I was young but it didn’t stick. Barssie was another one but my that was my brother’s nickname so he wouldn’t allow it.

    My parents were very much not hippies but I wished I had been.

  25. Hello all, checking in late. I try to check each day to see what you are up to even if I don’t comment (or always read them)

    I pulled out of the Jim Bryson house show tonight because it’s Interstellar weekend and I didn’t want to feel stressed by having too much to do in too little time. As it turns out I’ve got a lot done and I could probably have gone…bah.

  26. Dang TRH. I very much get the too much to do in too little time these days. Things are falling by the wayside in my life.

    I am looking forward to the weekend in Winnipeg and a festival I am not working at.

    *I could not get this to post again.
