Sleeping In

>> Monday, 6 April 2009


The lineup for the third annual Nuna (now) festival was recently dropped. If you’re unfamiliar with Nuna, it’s a nifty little soiree that explores the connection between contemporary Icelandic and Canadian art and culture, which means importing some musicians directly from the motherland.

Notable music happenings include:

The irreverent, trailblazing Megas (above photo), often dubbed “The Icelandic Bob Dylan”, is playing the Pyramid on April 30th with country-rockers Baggalutur (also from Iceland) and resident bluegrass spinners The D Rangers.

According to this report, Megas puts on an ‘ecstatically brilliant’ show and, unlike his North American equivalent, doesn’t have a voice that’s almost completely shot. Plus it’s only a fin.

Law Low, a lauded singer-songwriter also from the land of ice, is performing at the Lo Pub on May 8th with the Keri Latimer band (the leader of local favs Nathan). Again, tickets are the almost-free $5.

I should be hitting both shows. Hopefully you can make it out too and support these artists. The price is certainly right.
