Massive Nights

>> Wednesday, 13 May 2009

This year's Folk Festival lineup keeps getting better and better. For the first time since 1978, the legendary and prolific Elvis Costello is playing a show round these parts - he'll be the headliner on the just-added fifth day of the Folk Festival: Wednesday, July 7th.

Two more days and it'll be a full week!

More acts for the sure-to-be-great Folk Fest were also announced today, including:

  • Ex-BarenakedLady Steven Page
  • Burning Spear
  • Mirah
  • DJ Logic
  • Tom House
  • Digging Roots
  • Ridley Bent
  • Jackpine
  • Fred Penner
  • Alphabet Soup
  • Dominique Reynolds
One thing to note. Weekend passes don't include the added evening (Wednesday), so you have to buy another ticket for that night ($20 if you have a weekend pass; $40 for the day).

Better book your time off work soon!

Other show news..

The Shouting Ground are the Pyramid on June 12th.

Monotonix stop by there on May 21st.

Unfortunate news: Vancouver fuzz-poppers Japandroids, arguably the hottest indie act in this fine country, have canceled their already-rescheduled June 7th gig at the Lo Pub due to continued illness. Let's hope for a speedy recovery - I'm pretty stoked to see them live.

Oh, and LL Cool J has bailed on Winnipeg too! Sorry nostalgia lovers.

And finally, congrats to Larissa and Stephen on winning the Stills' contest. Thanks to everyone who entered!
