No Kinda Man

Phew! Back in business. My computer was on the fritz(I hate viruses!) for a few days but I got it working again.

Canadian Music Week's coming up next week. I put in a request for media accreditation to see if I could get a free media pass/wristband but I haven't heard anything back from them(yet). Regardless, I still plan to attend a few CMW events next week. In affilliation with CMW, Soundscapes is hosting some free instores featuring Immaculate Machine on March 6 at 5 pm, Laura Barrett on March 8 at 4 pm, and the already previously announced Forest City Lovers on March 9 at 4 pm.

The Pop Montreal and Unfamiliar Records/Musebox CMW showcases look interesting. Check out the posters here and here respectively.

Nathan Lawr and The Minotaurs bring their rootsy rock n' roll to The Boat on March 30.

The east coast's Ruth Minnikin and Her Bandwagon play the Horseshoe Tavern on May 27. A to-be-released new song, a playful pop romp entitled "Sleeping And Dreaming" streams over at her MySpace.

Junior Boys will be performing a DJ set at Pia Bouman Ballet School on March 15 according to their MySpace. It's a night-time gig according to the time specified on their MySpace. The gig's related to the release of their first ever DJ compilation "Body Language Volume 6" from which new song "No Kinda Man" appears on and can currently be heard over at their MySpace.

I'm assuming taking time out from recording the new Metric album, frontwoman Emily Haines and her band The Soft Skeleton will be playing a show of their own at the Phoenix on March 30, tickets $26.50.

Female rap trio Northern State play what I believe is their first headlining show in Toronto at The Mod Club on April 27, tickets $16.

Erin recently saw Jens Lekman live in Denmark who admitted to her afterwards that the only reason he hadn't been to Toronto in a long time was that "... he could only play in churches and that he needed a work permit or something, to be there...I don't know. He said it was ridiculously expensive or something, but he is playing in the USA soon. He was such a sweet heart." It comes as no surprise that with the announcement of more tour dates, there's still no Toronto date. Sweet heart, my ass.
