2010-12-26special affections a while ago, godspeed you black emperor finally announced some montreal dates for their spring 2011 tour. unfortunately, i could not get tickets. major disappointment.
then, they announced two additional shows at a bigger venue. about two weeks ago, i went to cheap thrills to get tickets. since they went on sale at noon, i browsed around the shop at around 11:50am. i quickly went through their used section, and saw diamond rings' "special affections". i remember liking his set when he opened for owen pallett; so i made an impulse purchase.
it's cheezy 80's synth pop, but i like it.
