Lots to announce and flesh out, so let's dive right in:
Lucid is staging their cd release party this Friday at the Pyramid.
54-40, a band whom I've always had a soft spot for, is at Silverado's November 10th.
Sloan, another Canadian band I've always had a soft spot for, is opening for Lenny Kravitz.
Acclaimed singer-songwriter Richard Thompson is at the Garrick on December 5th.
Buffy St. Marie's November 11th gig at the Pantages is cancelled.
Three Inches Of Blood rock the Albert on October 21st w/ Evile.
The Powerball roster has been filled out with Power97, umm, favourites: Papa Roach, Default, The Waking Eyes, and The Watchmen.
Fred Eaglesmith is at The Albert on November 8th.
The Subcity Dwellers are there November 15th.
And finally, congrats to Winnipeg's own The Weakerthans for taking home the SOCAN prize, a prize identifying, "what’s next and what’s best in current music." I wish I knew who they were up against.
