Let There Be Love

OasisAccording to Pollstar, Oasis have a show in Toronto at Air Canada Centre on March 20th. shows that there'll be a presale starting January 18th at 10:00 am. concert listings) shows that the ticket price range is $47.50 to $69.50 CDN.

When I first read the news today about the Oasis show, I remembered pop(all love)'s post from New Year's Eve wherewhen he expressed Oasis' "Let There Be Love" as beautiful, and with 2005 being 'messed up' as it was, we "Could have probably used a few more overly earnest British rock bands singing overly earnest odes to completely uncynical notions of love." Having listened to the song after that, it reminded me, at least for a moment, why I liked the band in the first place. Yes, their music refuses to progress with the times, but doesn't my generation(me being in my thirties) need our own version of The Rolling Stones? Am I going to try to purchase tickets to see Oasis? Well, the ticket price is a bit steep, but I will ponder it. Their show several years ago at The Molson Ampitheatre was a good one, and hearing "Stop Crying Your Heart Out" was damn beautiful. Really. [photo from http://../]

While the Canadian Music Week schedule is still being finalized, I noticed over at Jon Rae Fletcher and The River's MySpace site that they're scheduled for a show at the Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto on March 4th, I'm assuming which is a Canadian Music Week showcase.

According to Emerge, Toronto musical acts, Shawn Hewitt and Stop.Die.Resuscitate will be opening for Hard-Fi's upcoming show at the Horseshoe Tavern on January 20th.

New York Magazine speaks with Chan Marshall/Cat Power.

B(oot)log has a download in mp3 format of Broken Social Scene's show at Grant Hall in Kingston ON from October 19, 2005.

Belle and Sebastian performed a live session on January 12 '06 for BBC Radio 1's Vic Galloway. Listen here(session starts about 36 minutes into the program and the link is only valid for a week). B & S were interviewed and also performed a couple of acoustic takes on new songs 'Sukie In the Graveward' and 'Mr Richard'.

Update: Thanks to B(oot)log for ripping the B & S mentioned above to mp3. Now go and download it. You know you want it.

Just a reminder that Belle and Sebastian will be BBC 6 Music's Gideon Coe's guest in session on January 20th.
