Vancouver, B.C.: Feb. 13, David Lam Park (this is a free, Olympics-related gig, which also features Alexisonfire, Malajube, Blue Rodeo, Jully Black, and Sam Roberts Band)

I've been casually checking prices for lodgings during the 2010 Olympics, not because I have a particular love for curling, but because I'm infinitely curious about what the bars and streets of Vancouver and Whistler are going to be like with reps from virtually every corner of the globe represented. At last check, the cheapest room I could get was on a parked cruise ship, it was several hundred bucks a night, and I had to book it for at least four or five nights. If you're tempted to give it a go, you're not too late to book a room, but you're gonna pay for it.
