The Coffeehouse has just updated its schedule online. No big surprises: we already knew about Lovely Feathers, Troika, the Beast's CD release and Islands.

New, however, are It's Just Vanity playing with Antarctic and Greensboro's the Bronzed Chorus and Princeton (which I believe has been advertised on the door for some time so not quite new) Oct. 16. The big announcement is Former Ghosts, fulfilling the Coffeehouse's annual Jamie Stewart visit requirement. In addition to Mr. Xiu Xiu, the new super group includes This Song Is a Mess But So Am I's Freddy Ruppert  and Zola Jesus's Nika Roza. Openers for the latter shows are TBA. In a more meaningful presentation of information:

Oct. 3 - The Lovely Feathers w/ Rural Alberta Advantage, $7

Oct. 9 - Former Ghosts w/ TBA, $5

Oct. 10 - Princeton w/ TBA, $10

Oct. 16 - The Beast CD release party w/ Carlitta Durnad, Kooley High and Freebass 808, Price TBA, 8 p.m. Show
