Starf**ker Plays Burlington!

Posted By on Tue, Mar 31, 2009 at 5:54 PM

OK, I lied. My new(ish) favorite electro-indie band from — where else? — Portland, OR isn't playing Burlington. But since I tried a similar tactic in the paper a couple of weeks ago with Phish and failed to yield results (. . . so far), I figured it was worth another shot with a band I actually, you know, like. (Note to Phish: Please disregard that last line should you actually take me up on the suggestion to turn Burlington into hippie Austin for a weekend. All will be forgiven.)

Anyway, here's the deal: Starfucker — whom I wrote about in my belated roundup of non-local 2008 faves — are currently on tour in advance of their forthcoming album Jupiter, due out on May 5. On Sunday, April 19, they play a relatively new joint in Montreal called Il Motore. On April 21 & 22, they play NYC (Mercury Lounge) and Brooklyn (Union Pool), respectively.

Are you seeing what I'm seeing?

There's a gaping, Burlington-sized — perhaps, Winooski-sized? — hole in their itinerary. If only there were a group in town who were really good at plucking up-and-coming indie bands on tour between Canadia and points south out of the ether and plopping them down in Burlington for a night.

If only . . . tick . . . tick . . . tick . . .

(Note: that ticking sound was simply the sound of my brain working overtime and not me publicly putting Tick Tick on the spot to serve my own greedy indie ends.)

OK, I lied again. That was totally me putting Tick Tick on the spot. But I'll happily put any of our other venues and booking groups on the same spot if it means Starfucker plays Burlington on April 20. Let's make this happen, people. I'll start a petition if I have to.

Wait a sec . . . April 20 . . . April 20 . . . Why do I feel like there's something else happening that day?
