Shout Out Out Out Out (is that four Outs? Whew) has a new album, Reintegration Time (Normals Welcome Records, March 3), though in music-blogging time it’s already in the dustbin. Still, we dig. And when it comes to these Canuck party-punkers, here’s the thing: no one cares when the record drops, only when the show goes down. That’s cause the Shout Outs are (as one SXSW blogger said after their whirl through Austin last week) “a live band’s live band.” Now back in our home and native land, they’re playing to the cool kids from left to right coast. Check myspace.com/shoutoutoutoutout for dates and deets and don’t miss your chance to dance (all night; is there any other way?).

Plus, if you’re counting down til Metric-time again (the Toronto unit’s fourth and forth-coming record, Fantasies, hits shelves in a couple weeks) you can pause for this YouTube play: the new video for catch-hell single, ”Gimme Sympathy,” is now fully viral (myspace.com/metric).
