Windsor Live Music: Shapes and Sizes & They Shoot Horses, Don't They? & Nick Zubeck TOMORROW (Thursday) @ Phog

With Shapes and Sizes (Montreal) and They Shoot Horses, Don't They? and Nick Zubeck coming this Thursday, people need to realize the significance of this show.

Not only are Shapes and Sizes playing The Majestic in Detroit the night before (tonight), they also opened for The National during their last visit to Detroit at The Magic Stick.
Don't miss this show, or you'll be left in the lurch!

Stole this from Pitchfork Media:
Shapes and Sizes Impress Sufjan, Circle North America
Montreal's peculiar popsters Shapes and Sizes know how to do the buzz-garnering thing; they've got plenty of chatter going behind their just-released Asthmatic Kitty LP Split Lips, Winning Hips, a Shiner, and their fine taste in tourmates can't hurt getting the word out. The band will hop on the National bandwagon in early June, and follow that with a month of dates with fellow oddballs They Shoot Horses Don't They.

In yet another entry in his burgeoning career as hypeman, the Shapes have been sized up by labelmate/occasional musicmaker Sufjan Stevens. Suf-dogg recently penned up a long string of impressionistic non sequiturs after taking in the band's set at Brooklyn's Union Hall:

"They hardly let the songs take flight before shooting them down with the cunning of a duck hunter. But this is where things get interesting. The jumping and barking of hound dogs, the breathless sprint to the mallard, slumped and bloodied in a sanctuary of water, the howling reeds, the ghost of the wind. Well, my metaphor gets the best of me here."
