Just a reminder of Toronto Public Library's Make Some Noise indie music concert series kicks off with a free show tomorrow night at Toronto Reference Library (789 Yonge Street) with 2009 Polaris Prize winners hardcore locals Fucked Up and their special guests local roots outfit One Hundred DOllars. Doors are at 7:30 pm with the show starting at 8 pm. Having attended the Mississauga campus of University of Toronto back in the 90's, I only occasionally utilized the downtown U of T libraries and my trips to the Toronto Reference Library were virtually non-existent - I think I've been there only once more than a decade ago, and I don't at all recall the physical layout of the library. But as the press release advertises the event as a "concert in the stacks" it'll be interesting to see how accurate that turns out. At least One Hundred Dollars are a bit more on the subdued end [well compared to Fucked Up] of the musical spectrum. I expect Fucked Up to turn the place upside down.
In related news, Exclaim reports that Fucked Up are planning to tour with hip hop legends Public Enemy this September and will be releasing their Year of the Ox 12-inch sometime this year through Merge.
One Hundred Dollars' singer Simone Schmidt says a lot of nice things about their record label Blue Fog Recordings in this article.
