let's covocate!

  • Soon Canada will have its own equivilent of the Mercury Prize called the Polaris Music Prize. The shortlist will be announced on July 4th.
  • The Raconteurs have added some extra dates to their North American tour. Toronto didn't get any love (but Montreal did)!
  • The Kooks are stormin the UK charts.
  • Ricky Wilson's account of his recent hit-and-run is in the new NME. Serves him right for leaving a rock show early!
  • Doves have started work on their next album.
  • Ottawa's going to be quite the happening place this July with loads of amazing bands lined up for Ottawa Blues Fest.
  • Pete Doherty responds to the "bloody syringe in the airplane toilet" incident last week.
  • Lily Allen's new video for "Smile" is fantastic! It's a great way to start the week!
  • There was some drama in Canada on Friday... Some terrorists were arrested for plotting to blow up locations in Southern Ontario. Scary! I'm just happy they were caught before any damage was done!
  • I finally got to go to the Toronto Zoo yesterday (for the first time since I was like 7). It was fantastic! Check out Budi the baby orangutan!
  • I finally got around to renting "9 Songs" over the weekend. If you're into porn and indie rock you'd enjoy it.
  • I'm going to be busy graduating from university tomorrow so there won't be a post. I'll be back on Wednesday with a few extra letters to put beside my name!

    Congrats on graduating! Enjoy your blog, in part because I can't look away from the Doherty train wreck.
