On The Waterfront

HarbourfrontI did a venue search at Pollstar for 'Harbourfront' and came up with a bunch of new concert dates I hadn't come across yet. Recently the dates for the upcoming Harbourfront Centre summer festival season were announced, although final details have not yet been released. So combined with my Pollstar search results with the dates for the upcoming Harbourfront Centre summer festival season, I've determined the following:

  • Ojos De Brujo(July 3, 2005) playing as part of "Extravaganza: A Feast for the Senses"

  • Daara J(July 15, 2005) playing as part of "All Over the Map: A Feast of Global Sounds"

  • Kid Koala(July 23, 2005) playing as part of "Dim Sum: Sampling Contemporary Chinese Culture"

  • Billy Joe Shaver(August 13, 2005), Derailers(August 14, 2005), Nathan(August 14, 2005) playing as part of "T.O. Twang: All Things Alt Country"

  • Joel Plaskett(August 20, 2005) playing as part of "East Coast Rhythms: An Exploration of Atlantic Canada’s Culture"

  • Update: Thanks to Janice for pointing out in the comments that K-os will be playing Harbourfront on July 29th.

    The Dears will be returning to Toronto for a show at The Phoenix on June 10th...[info from chromewaves]

    On a related note, will be streaming a full set from The Dears on May 7th. [info from Bradleys Almanac]

    Sleater Kinney will be playing a live session for BBC 6music's Gideon Coe tomorrow April 25th. As usual, sessions start around the 20:40:00 mark(about 8:40 London, England time or about 2:40 Eastern Standard Time). Or catch the session in the archives in the future.

    Here's a torrent of the recent Shins show in Toronto at Kool Haus on April 17, 2005 which I went to. Here's my review of the show. [torrent link from largehearted boy]

    The Lollapalooza lineup looks interesting enough that I MIGHT consider going. Our very own Arcade Fire'll be there. It's like Coachella, only closer and cheaper!

    Damn...I just checked out the Architecture of Helsinki website and they've posted their US tour dates running from April 21st through to the end of June. They'll be hitting the US west and east coasts and states in the middle, but no Canadian dates. :-(

    Tahiti 80's first leg of their tour will take 'em through France in May and Japan in June. No North American dates announced yet. Again, :-(
