It's funny...ESG was getting namedropped left and right in the late 90's, especially when Luscious Jackson's "In search of Manny" was first released. I don't think they've ever made it to Toronto...until now. The 'legendary' group will be coming to Toronto for a show at Lee's Palace on June 24th. [photo from http://../]
The Pernice Brothers have been confirmed for a show in Toronto at Lee's Palace on July 18th, tickets $12.50.
Toronto psych-popsters The Old Soul will be doing a live instore at Soundscapes in Toronto on June 10th. The band's headlining a show at The Masonic Lodge in Mississauga tomorrow[June 3rd]. It's so close to me and it'd be the first time I ever saw a band live in my hometown but there are several Toronto shows tomorrow that I'm considering going to instead, such as The New Deal at The Mod Club, The Two Koreas(CD release party) at The Boat, or Controller.controller/Uncut at The 360 Club. Decisions, decisions.
Doves will be performing a live session for Morning Becomes Eclectic today @ 11:20 PST(2:20 EST).
The Dears/Shout Out Louds/Marjorie Fair will be doing a live session for MPR 89.3 The Current tomorrow.
I was out yesterday at noon and on two different occassions walked past an older gentleman walking around carrying a boombox that was playing his music. Is this some sort of new trend?
