There’s an evil virus that’s threatening mankind…

Godspeed You! Black Emperor are doing a four-show stint at Lee’s Palace this upcoming Easter weekend, and Megan and I can’t wait to see them. I was originally intending on dedicating a show to the band and its many associated acts on the Constellation label, but couldn’t be sure if all our listeners would share my endless enthusiasm for dark yet explosively redemptive post-rock.

But hey, what better music for the somber-yet-ultimately-joyous holy week? So in lieu of a full hour of GY!BE acts, this Wednesday’s MBTRG will include some new music and listener requests, along with a mere 1/4 hour for a GY!BE track.  We haven’t decided which one yet, but I think BBF3 is the front-runner, since we can now answer the question:

“What d’you think this country’s gonna look like in the year 2003?”

Anyone who remembers Blaise’s answer knows that he wasn’t too far off.
