Hey all! There’s a few news bits for this weekend I think you should know:
Lars Ludvig Lofgren and Ghost Trees will be playing a show at the Only Cafe tonight at 8 p.m. The Only Cafe is located at the Donlands subway stop and just an easy stroll around the NorthWest corner. Check them out! They played a very successful show in my backyard last week. Unfortunately, footage is still to come. You should also check out the Only Cafe, because it is a wonderful place.
Le Cyc will be performing their bike opera at the Music Gallery on John Street. This Guelph collective is getting a lot of attention for their cyclist, well anything, but they’ve also got pretty swell music and images that are projected along for the show – they tell quite the story! I’ll be covering this show & talking to them tonight for Broken Pencil – if you’re there, say hi!
I found out recently I’ll be covering the Polaris Prize gala for Exclaim! So if you’re there, again, say hi! Unfortunately, I’m not cool enough to have a Blackberry or iPhone to live blog/tweet, so you’ll probably be getting your news somewhere else but I’ll be speedy as soon as the gala is over.
Who do you think will win the Polaris Prize? Will it be Chad Vangaalen? Elliott Brood? KNAAN? Metric? Malajube? Joel Plaskett? Patrick Watson? Great Lake Swimmers? Fucked Up? Hey Rosetta?
