First up,  Juno Award winners Chic Gamine’s much-Twittered-about sophomore album, City City, finally enters the world tomorrow. See and hear and feel the style-blurring vocal quintet perform the new tracks at their cd released party going down November 13th at the WECC.

Second, opening acts for the Weakerthans’ Quadrilogy of shows are:

December 15th @ The Albert: Pip Skid
December 16th @ The WECC: Del Barber
December 17th @ The Pyramid: Boats
December 18th @ The Burton Cummings Theatre: Imaginary Cities

Third, singer-songwriter Lindsey White has booked a string of intimate dates around town:

October 25th @ Le Garage Café
November 3rd and 23rd @ The Fort Garry Lounge
December 8th @ The Park Theatre

Fourth, erstwhile 11 Questions participant and singer-songwriter Tom Keenan has some live dates around Peg City too:

November 13th @ The Lo Pub
December 19th @ The Pyramid

And, finally, an update about this year’s CBC Radio 2 Song Quest: the winning Manitoba road, with 46 more votes than the runner-up Confusion Corner (that's a road?!?), was Mountain Road, off the Yellowhead Highway. Can’t say I’m familiar.

The next step is for Keri Latimer to compose a song immortalizing said path. I’m betting on her pulling it off in style.
