However, I still wouldn't call EitS the best band of the past 5 years, I was just commenting that I was going to see them live. I'd pick Broken Social Scene or Mono.

That's probably because Canada has some of the best bands in the world right now. Constellation Records alone is enough to beat out just about every other nation.

Is that supporting Four Tet? If so, should be a good show.

No, its The Camden String Quarter and Lichens supporting EitS. Would've preferred to have seen them with Wilderness as the opening act, but oh well.

Either way, it's in London. And me and London don't mix well.

Exclamation newcomer alert!!!

Hello i am a newcomer to this site, so be nice

the best artist from the past 5 years is a hard question. I would have said Doves, because they are an amazing band, and perfect live, but Jack Johnson??? what a god he is, the next Bob Dylan
