Maybe this year'll be the year I finally attend the Hillside Festival (July 25-27) in Guelph. Some names have already been announced like Cowboy Junkies, Hawksley Workman, Hayden and The Sadies but a little digging on my part reveals more names to look forward to including Six Shooter Records artists Elliott Brood, Jenn Grant, and Justin Rutledge. Other artists scheduled to be there, according to their respective MySpace sites, are akron/family, The Luyas, The Bourbon Tabernacle Choir, po' girl, and Spiral Beach.
Chromewaves is on the ball as usual with some interesting/exciting concert news that includes some NXNE-related shows such as Money Mark at Horseshoe Tavern on June 12, Evan Dando at the Horseshoe on June 13 and Redd Kross at Lee's Palace on June 14.
Further down the road, Ohbijou are at Harbourfront on June 28, and Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds are at Kool Haus on October 1.
At the end of this week, sister duo(or is that trio now?) Smoosh are playing an instore at Sonic Boom on May 2 at 7 pm prior to their opening slot for Tokyo Police Club at The Opera House later that evening.
