Festival Circuit

  • So the NXNE festival is this week in Toronto. The festival has stayed true to the spirit of showcasing little known bands which is commendable. The problem(for me at least) is the bands are a little too unknown which makes it difficult to choose who to see. However, NXNE has a bunch of showcases that I'm interested in checking out. I might be checking any one or more of the following[info cut and paste from eye]:

  • Available at The Cardigans Country is The Cardigans' Live at Morning Becomes Eclectic session from May 24, 2004, available in mp3 format. Link from Spookihaus.

  • Has anyone heard Juliana Hatfield's rendition of Dot Allison's "Tomorrow Never Comes" off Juliana's new record "In Exile Deo". It is killer. According to The Covers Project, Juliana performed this song live back in 2000. I'm so glad she released it officially. Any word if the new album is good?
