Oh! Julia Holter + Hundred Waters in October. Also debating on traveling to see Stars in Ohio, I wouldn't mind seeing them twice.

Need advice on picking a show:

In Vancouver on Sept 29th:

Madonna 2nd ever career visit to western Canada.
Dragonette in 400 seater - I skipped a July festival appearance because I knew they'd play in the fall.
Bloc Party first Vancouver show in 5 years.
Garbage first Vancoucer show in over 7 years and 4th ever western Canada visit.

I'd say Garbage as well, just because it's very likely that this is probably your last opportunity to see them ever. Dragonette's going to be around for a while, though hopefully not at such small venues. But I'd pick Dragonette over Madonna, mostly because if you're going to see a pop show, well, it's way cheaper and they'll play better music.

Bloc Party never did it for me but a friend is a fan and will be split on it. Saw a couple songs from the BP singer at a festival and it was OK.

Madonna is also playing the 30th. I think I could get in for $70 curbside, which is the same price as the Garbage face value for good seats.

Garbage is the priority as I've never seen them. Picking up cheap seats out front has apparently been super easy this tour. No way they get anywhere near filling a 2,000 soft seater at $60 -70.

The Fiona Apple show I saw last was in a theater that was 1/3rd full. Bought a $30 ticket and found an empty seat 7 rows back in the section with $90 tickets. Great show, but the Pawn show I saw 12 years ago is still tops. Also good in 2006.

Back to Dragonette. Saw at Coachella this year but really really want to see a full set with the new stuff. Their management is absolutely insane for booking this show when their audience has at least 3 bigger priorities that night that have been announced for weeks. Having a super early or super late show could have doubled their audience that night. They play here a lot and I've seen them lots already but I'm real pissed at their crap management on this. Not worth the trek to Seattle on the 28th.

Here's 3 different solutions to the point you raised. They are going to draw 25% of what they did the last time they did a club show here.

There's 2 days off between Vancouver and Kelowna. They could have swapped routing/dates with Kelowna.

What stops them having an early curfew show( off by 8:30) or hit the stage at 11:40 allowing fans the opportunity to double book shows in one night. I've done that 3-4 times in the past.

Surprised to see them do 6 shows in a row a bunch of places.

Go see Madonna, because she'll flash her tits.
Or don't see Madonna, because she'll flash her tits.

Crying because MG has seen Fiona Apple 3(?) times
I think any Madonna production would be worth seeing, but one from Garbage would be more authentic

Might see them when they're in TO.
But no The xx for me :( Hopefully Florence & The Machine and Cold Specks in August though.
