“Good evening,
Parkas’ residence... ”

Indie-pop-rockers (and pride of Western) The Parkas will be the El Mocambo’s resident players every Tuesday night for the month of February. According to the band, they will be joined by “a few friends” at the Toronto nightspot as the group delivers tunes from their sleeper, Andy Magoffin-produced debut Now This is Fighting, in addition to some new songs. Before that, you can catch our heroes right here, when The Parkas play a free show at The Spoke this Thursday night with other Western faves The Heard Mentality and Toronto’s The Patients, whose debut EP on Permafrost Records was also produced by Magoffin.

Wacko Jacko is tardy
The media circus surrounding Michael Jackson’s highly-publicized arrest back in November is only going to intensify in the coming months, as his court time is beginning. Jacko appeared in court this past Friday for an arraignment hearing, where the accused child molester pleaded not guilty to the charges held against him. However, the self-proclaimed King of Pop was accosted by fans outside the courthouse, making him over 20 minutes late for his scheduled appearance. Not exactly the best first impression — not to mention his glitzy, creepy, trademark MJ outfit. Yikes.
