Asleep On A Train

>> Saturday, 17 January 2009

You know just last week I mentioned/complained to a friend how there’s really not a lot of great indie shows on the horizon and how our city seemed to be in a sort of announcement funk. His response was, on hindsight, fairly obvious: Would you want to tour Canada, let alone stop in Winnipeg, in the winter?

Point acknowledged. (Aside: Let’s hear it for the weather today! Oh, glorious reprieve!)

Anyway…over the past ten days or so a remarkable number of exciting shows have been announced and here are some more:

Plants and Animals - Polaris-Prize Nominees / artists who earned the #5 spot on my Top Ten Records Of The Year List (which is, arguably, just as good as a Polaris nom) - play the Park Theatre on March 24nd. Pending school, I’ll be there.

The creatively-named dd/mm/yyyy will be at The Albert on 23/02/2009.

According to The Park Theatre’s website The Gaslight Anthem will be here on April 5th; however, I can’t seem to find any corroborating evidence for this show, hence me typing the blame-deflecting “according to”. Until I find a second source, I won't put this on the right.

Senses Fail are at the Garrick on April 13th.

On their MySpace page under the comments section, their record label Weewerk wrote how they're playing an Instore performance here on March 23rd. That would be infinitely cool.

I can't find any further confirmation though. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

Animal Collective scheduled up to Minneapolis through the US and then about 4 days later in Vancouver... however, I feel this won't happen for Winnipeg. Maybe Calgary?
