*blows trumpet*


The West End Cultural Centre is, at last, reopening its doors (next month). And the good folks at the freshly renovated WECC have booked a very impressive new-digs-christening show for the May 25th opening night: Hawksley Workman is performing while local staple Greg MacPherson starts the evening off. Now since Workman normally plays much larger venues, tickets are a pricey 35 bones, but it's a very rare opportunity to see him in such an intimate setting.

And Greg is consistently awesome live (and I'm not just saying that because he was cool enough to take part in my patent-pending 11 questions segment).


Subcity Dwellers play the WECC on May 28th.

Danny Michel the next night with erstwhile Anthem Red leader Jo Snyder opening.

Connie Kaldor performs the night after that.

Julie Doiron will be at the Albert on June 5th.

Rod Stewart returns to town on August 17th at the MTS Centre.

Rock legends AC/DC also return to Winnipeg on August 22nd at CanadInns Stadium.

The Lo Pub is hosting the Rolling Tundra Revue After Party (the whole Weakerthans/Constantines show dealie) on Saturday with Haunter rocking the place round midnight. Anyone with a ticket stub gets in for free.

Sunday at the Lo sees solo performances galore: three members of the Constantines will play separately plus Greg Smith from the Weakerthans will perform a set Weakerthans-less. Yes, that's four solo sets in total.

And now, back to hockey.

Thanks for the heads up on the WECC.
