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.
