In Search Of ...

N.E.R.D.N.E.R.D. have called it quits due to a dispute with its record label, Virgin Records. What a disappointment. I did check 'em out with my brother live when they played in Toronto during the summer of 2004. And going into that show with only a passing familiarity with their music I was surprised how much I liked their music. They crossed and mixed many musical genres from rock, hip-hop, r'n'b, with just a touch of punk attitude. Really amazing. And really beautiful to see indie kids, hip hop fans and rock fans agree on something. [news from Pitchfork] [photo from http://../]

Doves will perform on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno tomorrow night, March 22nd. By the way, the presale for Doves' show at Kool Haus in Toronto in May begins tomorrow at 10 am over at House of Blues. Otherwise, the public sale begins on March 24th at 10 am Ticketmaster and other vendors.

Also starting tomorrow at 10 am, House of Blues will also have a presale for The Killers who'll be performing with openers Tegan and Sara at The Molson Ampitheatre on May 31st. Tickets are $32.50 and $45.00 CDN. The HOB presale ends Saturday March 28th at 12 am and the public on-sale begins March 28th at 10 am. ... my jaw's still on the ground that The Killers are playing The Molson Amphitheatre.

And a reminder again that, The Dears will perform on Last Call with Carson Daly tomorrow night as well.

A couple of Morning Becomes Eclectic sessions are coming up this week featuring some worthy Canadian music acts including Stars on March 23rd and Kathleen Edwards on March 24th.
