Pitchfork's already had the news, but for those who don't read it - congratulations to our friends in Toronto band Rock Plaza Central, who've signed a U.S. deal with the fine label Yep Rock. YR seems to have a Canadian happy on these days, since they also released Sloan's last album in the States. RPC is performing live on MTV Canada tomorrow (Tuesday) at 6 pm (you can attend in studio by emailing here) and playing an in-store at Criminal Records (493 Queen W) on Sunday at 4:30 pm and at Lee's the same day opening for Oxford Collapse and Thunderbirds Are Now. They're in Montreal at the Main Hall on Saturday, and playing some NY-area dates in mid-February.

KS's post, taken in its entirety, is a better band name than Rock Plaza Central. Hi, Carl. Thanks.

Nothing against the music, which I haven't heard, and nothing at all against the members of the band (I know one passingly and he is a solid guy), but Rock Plaza Central is without a doubt the worst band name I have ever heard. Lesbian, about which you posted earlier, is a better band name than Rock Plaza Central. Osama Bin SARS is a better band name than Rock Plaza Central. I could go on.
