Sugar Mountain

On the heels of their recently released "Another World" EP, and leading up to the new album "The Crying Light in 2009", Antony and The Johnsons are touring and will make a stop in Toronto for an all-ages show at The Queen Elizabeth Theatre on February 17 of '09. Tickets onsale Dec 4th at 10 a.m. for $35.00. There's a Facebook page you can join to keep updated about the show. [via Stille Post & rootmeansquare]

Via Emerge comes new that the December 15 show at The Opera House with CSS and Ssion has been cancelled. Tickets can be refunded at point of purchase.

January 23 of the new year will bring to the Horseshoe a bill with Fembots and Harbourcoats ( a new project apparently by Bry Webb of The Constantines), tickets $8.00.

Franz Ferdinand will be playing a special all-ages show at The Masonic Temple on Friday, December 5 at 3:30 PM and the only way to get tickets is through 102.1 The Edge, so break your no-Edge listening habits just this one time. And if you by chance do win tickets, think of an excuse to get out of work. More details about the show here.

I caught the opening of the Cavalcade of Lights [photos] down at Nathan Phillips Square over the weekend and as Mayor David Miller expressed, each Saturday in December (up til the 20th) Nathan Phillips Square will feature free fireworks, a Skating Party with DJ, and concerts with a few of the highlights (well for some of you) being Dragonette on December 13 and Serena Ryder on December 20. Concerts start around 7 pm each night. Info here.

Gawk at Pitchfork's 2008 Reader's Poll. I tried yesterday, but it wasn't loading for me. I'll try again today - I'm sure it'll be entertaining. Perhaps, I shouldn't have assumed that Pitchfork's Readers' Poll was actually up....no they're just requesting readers take part in the poll. So go make yourself feel important and participate. I'd have hope for sarcastic commentary from readers but alas, at least according to the first question in the survey, a commentary dialog box isn't provided.

Out today, the CD/DVD release of Neil Young's "Sugar Mountain - Live at Canterbury House 1968". Yay!
