  • In anticipation of his new CD "Shake The Streets", out October 10th, Ted Leo is heading out on tour [does this man ever rest?]. Ted Leo and his Pharmacists will start the tour on the east coast, then head to the west coast, go through the midwest then finally end up in Detroit...which is just a hop, skip and a jump to Toronto! [crossing my fingers!] Ted, are you reading this? :-) [news courtesy of Tiny Mix Tapes]

  • An e-mail I received yesterday from the "You'll Never Walk Again" e-mail list which is devoted to Brit band, Gene, reports that "...Gene's latest DVD release, a live show recorded in Sheffield earlier this year, is scheduled to reach shops on November 15th in the UK. The release will be a double DVD, with the live show recorded in 5.1 surround sound, interviews with the band and a few other special extras...". Subsequent e-mails from the list put the release date as October 25, and this appears to be the UK version of the DVD [ie. unless you have a DVD player that plays all regions, it'll probably not play in North American DVD players.]

  • Metric's fall tour dates are now up at their site, including a date in Toronto on October 8 at The Docks! ...I still can't believe I've never seen them live.

  • If you're not already acquainted with the lovely, hush music of Julie Doiron what better way to then to check out Brave New Waves, who will be doing a profile on Julie Doiron on the official release date for her new album, "Goodnight Nobody". Tune in at 1 am on Tuesday September 7, on CBC Radio Two, 94.1 FM in Greater Toronto Area [for frequencies in other parts of Canada, well, uh, you're on your own]. [news from Endearing Records site]
