Afternoon Headlines: Kathleen Edwards' Doesn't Have A Voice; We Want Chilly Willy; The Science of Deduction
>> Wednesday, April 11, 2012
First up, bad news, Kathleen Edwards fans: due to losing her voice, the singer-songwriter has postponed a string of dates including the Winnipeg one this Saturday. According to the press release, "Ticketholders for the Garrick Centre performance are asked to hold on to their tickets as they will be accepted on the re-scheduled date. If ticketholders are unable to attend the new date, refunds will be available at the point of purchase. The new date will be announced once confirmed."
The Red Hot Chili Peppers rock the MTS Centre on Monday, November 26th. Guess the Jets'll be on the road in late November.
Spend an evening at the WECC with seasoned folk musician Garnet Rogers on Sunday, May 27th.
Whitehorse musical exports Old Time Machine is at Pop Soda's on Saturday, May 12th w/ Old Cabin.
Sweet Alibi is at the Park Theatre on Wednesday, May 30th w/ The Strumbellas.
Speaking of the Park Theatre...Vancouver's Brasstronaut is there on Monday, July 11th w/ Icelandic group Útidúr.
And finally, after applying the science of deduction, we can conclude that the likelihood of The Hold Steady playing this year's Winnipeg Jazz Festival is...highly probable. Evidence: The band plays Fargo on June 18th, then doesn't play Saskatoon until June 21st, leaving two nights for a Winnipeg date. Also, the 19th and 20th of June fall within the Jazz Festival date range of June 14th-23rd.
The top secret Jazz Festival lineup drops this Friday morning.
