It Came From The Late Night Music Club From Culture City
With "The Broken Social Scene’s"

The Hi-light the the Whole lollapalooza 2006 came on the third and final day, and any one who know the festival sence know that some time things dont always goes as plan some time bands play late, there set goes over delay ing the other band and so on and so on.

According to all report the toronto band the Broken Social Scene’s stole the show from the main headliners Red Hot Chili Peppers They have there entier full Band (Which inclued Ohad Benchetrit,Torquil Campbell,Brendan Canning,Jason Collett,Evan Cranley,John Crossingham,Kevin Drew, Leslie Feist,Jo-ann Goldsmith,Emily Haines,Martin Davis Kinack,Lisa Lobsinger,Amy Millan,Dave Newfield,Julie Penner,Justin Peroff,Bill Priddle,James Shaw,Charles Spearin, and Andrew Whiteman) played a amazing show they did notr played the full show because they ran late.

But this when down accroding to Jasper from

BSS was given a shortened set so the Chili Peppers could have a longer headlining set. The crowd was displeased — enthusiastically chanting for an encore, one more song, give us anything…The video screens on both sides of the field projected images of the BSS members backstage, mouthing the words “Thank You” and “I’m Sorry.” Some of them did the shoulder shrug, wide-eyed look of “there’s nothing we can do,” a couple members lay on the floor, with their hands in a praying gesture, mouthing “thank you” over and over to the cameras. Some of the member’s parents came out on stage to take pictures of the crowd.
The stage manager (I’m guessing) off to the side got on his two-way radio to Perry’s people. Perry was all set across the field to blather on for five minutes and introduce RHCP. The stage manager told us an encore wasn’t going to happen. Then “Fuck the Peppers” chants started. And of course, that entire half of the field boo-ed when Perry took the stage.
Ironically, all of this hoop-la delayed RHCP’s set a good ten minutes, and then their set ended ten minutes early – so BSS could have easily played another twenty minutes. A lot of the fans stuck around the BSS stage, having no interest in hearing some middle-aged dudes play Top 40 rock, and many of the BSS members came out to sign autographs, take pictures and shake hands with the crowd.

this is the hi-light of there touring for there well recived third album which made many top 10 list and is shortlisted for the inaugural Polaris Music Prize(Canada version of Mercury Music Prize in 2006.

Tonight entry in the music Club is from that album "7/4 Shoreline"
