In Winnipeg Music News...The Ribbon Rail Review @ Lo Pub; Face To Face @ WECC

>> Monday, 7 March 2011

Via Rail continues they’re very cool and pretty green partnership with Canadian indie acts. Starting March 23rd, Woodpigeon (above), The Phonemes, and The Mountains and the Trees will be touring across Canada together by rail, performing daily sets for passengers as well as evening concerts at selects stops. Alliteratively dubbed the Ribbon Rail Review, this tour includes a date at the friendly neighbourhood Lo Pub on April 6th.

Speaking of the Lo Pub, Edmonton's Gobble Gobble play there on April 30th.

And Saskatoon-based  indie-folk act Slow Down, Molasses drop by on March 19th.

Reunited SoCal punk rockers Face to Face are the West End Cultural Centre on Monday, May 2nd with brothers-in-arms Strung Out. Tickets go on sale this Friday.

Back in December Winnipeg’s favourite blues-rocker Romi Mayers recorded, in a single take, a live album consisting of all new material, and the end product, Lucky Tonight, finally sees the light of day this April 26th. Mayes will also be performing tunes off it at Times Change(d) on June 23rd as part of the annual, loosely defined Jazz fest.

The City Streets return to town for a gig at the Albert on March 29th in support of their newest EP, Peacemaker (street date: tomorrow).

And finally, local hip-hop duo Rebel Yell is holding their official cd release party at the Pyramid on my most favourite of holidays: April Fools Day!
