In Winnipeg Music News...Folk Fest Thursday v. Tragically Hip/Broken Social Scene/Hey Rosetta IS ON!

>> Tuesday, 26 April 2011

So the conflict between Folk Fest Thursday Edition vs. Tragically Hip @ Shaw Park just reached new epic, loyalties-will-be-test heights, with the latter event also featuring the one-two indie-rock punch of Broken Social Scene and Hey Rosetta.

Presale for the Hip/BSS/Hey Rosetta outdoor party kicks off tomorrow and the presale password is band. What to do? What to do?

Also, still-relevant-after-20-years rockers Sloan return to Winnipeg for a show at the Pyramid on May 28th.

Omigawd HIP HIP HIP!

You know I love my Hip but this wonderful lineup makes it so much better to rub in my Folk Fest friends faces!

A lot of crazy Hip fans have been yearning for a return of a "Another Roadside Attraction" event headlined by the Hip and this might be as close as it gets. ARA was a big-lineup touring festival in the early 90s with a handful of awesome bands including the now-defunct Midnight Oil from Australia.
