    Arts & Craft's Field Trip 2016

    I have to applaud Field Trip for roping in such diverse a prolific acts, beyond the National. Charles Bradley, Robyn, Holy Fuck, Of Montreal, July Talk, Basia Bulat and DIIV were some big names played the festival. It's often forgotten that Field Trip was dreamed up by Arts & Crafts founder...

    Riot Fest Toronto rev up

    Canada is just a bit larger than the USA and is comprised of ten provinces and three territories. If we're very lucky touring bands and festivals visit three or four of these major cities. Living in Toronto means that all bands that are touring North America will make a stop here. Famous live...

    Best New Music, 2014 edition

    A three-parter list here. The first is comprised of six albums that have spent enough time with me to deserve my articulated thoughts. The second is a list of albums that I really enjoyed this year that I feel require no explanation. The third is a list of albums that I plan to listen to well...

    The Toronto Urban Roots Festival (TURF); Friday July 4-Sunday July 6, 2014 at Fort York

    I feel as though festivals are easier for the bigger acts. OutKast did the very same thing - festival dates galore, no independent shows.

    The Detroit Party Marching Band Queen West Takeover; Friday April 18, 2014

    I love that video introduction to the Detroit Party Marching Band. My first time too hearing Lemon Bucket Orchestra. I thought they paled in comparison to the DPMB.

    Tycho at the Hoxton; Saturday April 12, 2014

    I caught their gig at Sasquatch! Music Festival in Washington State and it was 100000000X better than their gig at the Hoxton.

    The Toronto Urban Roots Festival (TURF); Friday July 4-Sunday July 6, 2014 at Fort York

    The Toronto Urban Roots Festival (TURF) title is misleading, as inserting the word “urban” into any festival title gives it an odd connotation. Festival founder Jeff Cohen said they considered using the more fitting word “indie” in the title, but felt the name would be too close to another...

    The Detroit Party Marching Band Queen West Takeover; Friday April 18, 2014

    The Detroit Party Marching Band is a guerrilla-style marching band comprised of 30 members from the Detroit-area playing every instrument you can recall from high school band. For the very first time, the band brought their eclectic, unstoppable music to Toronto. In support of the Lemon Bucket...

    Tycho at the Hoxton; Saturday April 12, 2014

    @djfear - I didn't take good notice of the drummer at this gig. Good tip for my next watch. @The Truth - sorta, not really. Maybe you'll get more out of me soon.

    Tycho at the Hoxton; Saturday April 12, 2014

    Three years ago I went to the Hoxton’s opening night event, which showcased Brazilian duo the Twelves. I had seen them play two months prior at Coachella based on a tip that they were the Brazilian Daft Punk. With a few gal pals in tow, I unknowingly dragged them to opening night gig at the...

    Glasvegas at the Mod Club; Saturday February 22, 2014

    Scottish rock band Glasvegas played a full Mod Club on Saturday night, which meant it was to be an early gig. As I get older, I realize what a gem it is to not be stuck at a concert venue for all hours of the evening, it also allows one to hop to another show... Say, Malkmus and the Jicks up the...

    Phosphorescent and Caveman at the Mod Club; Saturday February 1, 2014

    My sweet friend Natalie got me a ticket to this gig for my birthday. I was sweating its approach because a 2013 favourite band called Night Beds was to play with Lord Huron that night as well. Thankfully after Natalie had bought me a ticket for Phosphorescent, the Lord Huron show sold out and...

    Poliça with Marijuana Deathsquads at the Mod Club; Friday November 1, 2013

    Hey there, sorry for the delay. Nope, I've tried getting into electronic-type music, but I just can't relate. Trip-hop and bands like Polica and some DJs like RJD2 are probably the closes I'm going to get to anything in the vast, vast field of electronic music.

    Poliça with Marijuana Deathsquads at the Mod Club; Friday November 1, 2013

    Justin Vernon, frontman of Bon Iver, in early 2012 declared Poliça as the best band he's ever heard. Poliça played Sasquatch! 2012, which I was privy to attending, however had yet to hear the band. My comment on a quick listen of the band was that they were Vernon's favourite band, clearly that...

    Unknown Mortal Orchestra at Lee's Palace; Wednesday October 16, 2013

    Looking back, it seems that I saw these guys play in March at the Wrongbar. It feels longer ago than that, but that could be a whole number of factors. I have to say, Lee’s Palace is my very favourite venue in Toronto. It has the best sight lines no matter where you stand (or sit), the...
