News and a little housekeeping for the weekend:
FYI, The Raconteurs show on June 5 which was originally supposed to be at Ricoh Coliseum has been moved to Kool Haus. Tickets already purchased will be honoured at the new venue.
Just a reminder(although many of you are probably already aware) that the NXNE schedule is now up. I'm still wondering about the planned shows that are suppose to take place in various parks/locations around the city. Only a few of these actually appear in the official schedule. What about the rest? NXNE takes place June 12-15.
Via Emerge is news that UK sensation Duffy will return to Toronto for a show at Phoenix on August 2. Tickets went on sale this morning. 19+ show and are a whopping $27.50.
G Love and Special Sauce with openers The John Butler Trio will be in Toronto August 9 for a show at Sound Academy.
Harbourfront Centre will be hosting the finale of the Luminato Festival (june 6-15) with a weekend long festival of its own entitled Luminat’eau (June 13-15). Much of it will be free as I understand. It'd seem like a good opportunity to broaden one's(ie. my) horizons with various things to experience including Dance, Film, Visual Art and of course Music.
The updated band lineup for this year's Virgin Festival at Toronto Islands(September 6-7) isn't extraordinary but I have to say that Day 2 did get better with the addition of Sons and Daughters and Robyn.
For the third time in what will be just over a year, Okkervil River return to Toronto for a show at the Phoenix on October 12.
And finally, just a little housekeeping, but I got around to posting some photos to my Flickr including:
