It Hurts To See You Dance So Well

The PipettesThe Canadian Music Week site has now posted the schedule for this year's festival. It's now known that UK's The Pipettes will be playing the Rivoli on March 10, and if I've understood the schedule correctly, they'll for opening for UK duo Smoke Fairies who by the songs on their MySpace seem to be in that acoustic-folk vein. It's a little surprising then that The Pipettes are opening for them - oh well.[photo from NME]

Also according to the CMW schedule, currently hot locals Ohbijou are on the bill with Denmark's Under Byen and Sweden's Frida Hyvonen at The Mod Club on March 8. BTW, how was the Friends in Bellwoods show at the Tranzac yesterday? I wish I could have been there, but I was too pooped.

Joe Pernice recounts some memorable moments from on the road during The Pernice Brothers' most recent US tour over at The Pernice Brothers website. He signs off the post "JP 1/12/07 Toronto, Ontario, Canada". So now that Joe's back home in Toronto, maybe we can expect a solo show around town sometime soon?

The Fall are going on tour in the UK in March and April but preceding the tour will come the February release of the group’s 26th studio album, "Reformation ! Post-TLC". Could that warrant a return to North America(and Toronto this time, please!) in the coming year - I hope.

The Montreal Mirror has a conversation with New Order's/Freebass' Peter Hook.

I can only imagine some people are barely containing themselves about the upcoming The Constantines/Jon Rae and The River Canadian tour in March and April. There will be a two-night stint at Lee's Palace in Toronto on March 30 and 31, with Shotgun and Jaybird joining the bill on March 30 and Ladyhawk on March 31(via Chromewaves). Long live Canadian rock n' roll.
