Here's a stop-gap post of assorted concert announcements and music news until some real content comes along:
Peter Moren(of Peter Bjorn and John) is at the El Mocambo on April 24. The show was moved from The Mod Club.
Aversion interviews The Constantines who are at the Phoenix on May 1 and the Virgin Festival at Toronto Islands on September 6. Their newest album "Kensington Heights" is available to stream over at their MySpace; more tour dates over there as well.

The Windish Agency is now listing Poni Hoax(no longer Datarock) as the opener for the Ladytron show at Harbourfront Centre on July 4.
Richard Thompson is at The Danforth Music Hall Theatre on July 6, tickets $35.00.
Not riled by bogus record reviews by Maxim magazine, The Black Crowes come to prove themselves at Massey Hall on July 12.
I'm still not quite sure of the musical lineage that runs through the band A Hack And A Hacksaw(are they a Neutral Milk Hotel side project?; what's the Beirut connection?) as I haven't devoted enough time to reading up on them but they're at El Mocambo on July 16 and my interest is piqued by the samples over at their MySpace.
Brooklyn, NY's Oneida are at a venue TBA on August 15[ via Kork Agency ].
Chartattack reports that Sloan's 13-track new album "Parallel Play" will be released through Yep Roc in the U.S on June 8 and it's expected(though not confirmed) that Sloan will release through their own label Murderecords in Canada on the same day. Chartattack has the new album's tracklisting.
Lyncanthropy has mp3's of Portishead's recent performance on Current TV of new songs from their forthcoming album "Third". Thank you Lycanthropy.
