Guess I Should've Caught Your Call

>> Friday, 20 February 2009

Zounds! The classy, legendary and prolific singer /songwriter /musician /poet /novelist Leonard Cohen is comin' to Winnipeg, playing The MTS Centre on April 30th. While he's getting on in years (74!), reports across the board say he's still an intoxicating performer. Now according to preliminary info on TM's site, tickets go on sale Monday, March 2nd with prices ranging from $89 - $249.50, but I'm sure there'll be presales galore. Stay tuned.

I just remembered I own his novel Beautiful Losers (unread) - might have to up it in the ol' reading queue.

Star of Austin Powers 3 (the weakest of the trio IMO) slash R&B songstress Beyonce will be at The MTS Centre on March 28th. Presale password is BOY.

Montreal indie-rockers The Stills play The Garrick on May 16th.

Songwriter/performer Geoff Berner is at the Ellice Theatre on March 14th with the always-entertaining Bob Wiseman.

Oh and as previously noted, I was the guest host on UMFM's "The Electric Tongue" last night. My personal global-trekking playlist was:
  • Kate Steele - 'Bus Stop' (Canada)
  • The Awkward Stage - 'Your Heart Serves Only You' (Canada)
  • The Books - 'Take Time' (US)

Other countries covered (not by me) included: Russia, Japan, Wales, Holland, and Germany.
