Bootleg Party

Before the start of the recording of their second album, The Diableros will head off by hosting a 'Bootleg Party' at Sneaky Dee's on April 19 when they will invite anyone to record the show and share the performance online if they like[via Stille Post]. The band will even post the setlist on Stille Post after the show is over. Ian(and maybe Pete) will be doing double-duty that nigh as the other band they sometimes play in, The Airfields will also be on the bill. On a tangent, according to The Airfields MySpace, they'll be at Rancho Relaxo on May 18 with Ottawa's Toronto's Foxfire Forest and Toronto's Barons and Lengthy. The Airfields are at Neutral in Toronto this Saturday. Man, The Airfields are coming back full force to playing live again.

The recent Arts & Crafts update brings news of a short upcoming tour by Amy Millan(I'm thinking of going to see her in Hamilton on May 2):

April 27. Kingston, ON. Wellington St.
April 28. Peterborough, ON. Gordon Best.
May 2. Hamilton, ON. Casbah.
May 3. Waterloo, ON. Starlight.
May 4. Toronto, ON. Massey Hall.

Arts & Crafts also says that on April 24, AOL will air online intimate studio sessions with Feist - both audio and video of Ms. Feist performing songs from "Let It Die" and her upcoming album "The Reminder", recorded last December in Mississauga at Metalworks Studio. I was always aware of Metalworks but until today I'd never known it was located just minutes away from me. Damn, Leslie you were so close and yet so far.

In the meantime, you can watch the latest three Feist 'webisodes' below(with new webisodes coming soon for "The Water" and "1234"):

Video: "My Moon My Man"
Video: "Sealion"
Video: "The Park"

Thrill Jockey's The Sea and The Cake come to Toronto for a show at The Mod Club on June 2 with openers The Zincs. [via Time To Play B-sides]

Chromewaves points out that Wilco's going to be at Massey Hall on June 30. My brother's birthday. Why does life have to bring such difficult decisions? Pitchfork has more Wilco tour dates.

Cranberries frontwoman Dolores O'Riordan comes out of hiding for a show at Phoenix Concert Theatre on July 7. I'm sure some of you are excited. [via Pollstar]

More additions to the Toronto Virgin Festival lineup as follows(via Chromewaves at Stille Post - Day One is definitely looking interesting):

day 1: Arctic Monkeys, MIA, Mute Math
day 2: Metric, Peter Bjorn & John, Honeycut

13 years ago tomorrow(April 5), Kurt Cobain left this Earth. And for the last few years on that day, I pull out my copy of Nirvana's MTV Unplugged In New York CD. Man, that was such a beautiful performance. I once remembered reading an album review of that CD ages ago in a university student newspaper in which they pointed out that Nirvana were as powerful at a whisper as they were at a scream, and I couldn't have put it better myself.
