Speaking of Friday, October 7th, Victoria, BC electro-pop residents Data Romance stop by the Park Theatre that night.
The Bluebird North songwriters showcase featuring: Renee Lamoureux, Heather Longstaffe, Ray St. Germain and Dave Wasyliw will be held at the Park Theatre on September 22nd.
Nova Scotian roots export Kim Wempe plays the Winnipeg Free Press Cafe on October 12th.
Ten Second Epic rock the WECC on Saturday, November 19th.
Add Montreal's Danielle Duval to the Royal Wood show happening at the WECC on September 18th.
And finally, if you missed this over the weekend (I did) FreeP music critics past and present made a spirited and frankly hilarious plea to Gary Bettman not to pick Nickelback to perform at NHL FaceOff going down at the Forks on Thursday, October 6th. By doing so, Rob and Bartley have forever made Nickelback and "Margarine sandwiches on white bread" synonymous in my mind.
I second their vote for Arcade Fire.
