Note: I was away in TO this past weekend catching M83 (digression: if he comes here, you won't be disappointed), so I'm just now catching up on show listings I missed during my four-day hedonistic adventure. There're some good ones.
First off, seasoned Canadian act Cowboy Junkies drops by the WECC on Monday, June 25th.
Over at the Park Theatre, Chicago post-rock instrument band Russian Circles is there on Monday, June 18th alongside And So I Watch You From Afar and Indian Handicrafts.
Intriguing summer event at Shaw Park (it's where the Goldeyes play): Skrillex, Pretty Lights, Diplo, Grimes, Koan Sound, and Tokimonsta will all be performing on Wednesday, July 18th as part of the Full Flex Express Tour.
The inimitable Tony Bennett is at the Centennial Concert Hall on Wednesday, August 22nd.
Triple bill at the Lo Pub on Saturday, June 9th: Salinas, The Mystics, and Spirit Children.
KD Lang and the Siss Boom Band is at Pantages on Friday, September 14th.
Canadian rock legends Rush is at the MTS Centre on Wednesday, September 26th. Guess there's no Jets pre-season game that night at the Phone Booth.
Double bill at the WECC on Thursday, June 14th: Mishka and Anuhea.
And finally, Detroit Cobras stops by the Pyramid on July 9th.
