Just bits and pieces today. Enjoy.
Old news to some but there's a new Jens Lekman fansite, Maple Leaves, which pretty much outdos the official site, at least in terms of style. At Jens' offical website, there's an mp3[see July 2/05 post] of Jens performing a cool acoustic version of "You Are The Light". [fansite link via Think Small; photo from http://../]
MPR: 89.3 The Current has now uploaded onto their site the live session Feist performed for them on 7/8/05. She performed some nice solo renditions of "One Evening"(swoon, hmmm), "Secret Heart", and "Mushaboom".
Blane at the Arts & Crafts Broken Telphone forums has seeded a torrent of Broken Social Scene's set at this past weekend's Ottawa Blues Festival[specifically from July 9, 2005]. Blane mentions that he'll also be seeding a torrent in the near future of Feist's live show from this year's Montreal Jazz Festival. Sweet.
Arts & Crafts says Broken Social Scene will be playing the Hillside Festival, on Sunday July 24th. This must have been a late addition, because this is the first time I'm hearing about this. And this sucks, since today's update at the Hillside Festival website says that ALL tickets are now SOLD OUT.
Jason Collett and guests will be playing a show at The Mod Club on August 5th. Tickets $12 at Rotate This and Soundscapes. It's an early show; doors at 7pm.
According to emerge, stellastarr* will be at the Horseshoe on September 10th. Tickets on sale this Saturday July 16th.
One Louder informs us that Cleveland radio station WBWC will broadcast 18 straight hours of Flaming Lips songs as part of the station's "2005 Summer Marathon Series." This goes down on July 28th, from 7am to 1am and will feature studio tracks, b-sides and rarities. You can listen online at http://www.wbwc.com.
