This Week in Toronto: April 4- May 6

Hello, it's Thursday! And here's a few things worth checking out this week, click on the links to find out more (hear music etc), add a comment in the comment section...


Alien and Aliens playing at Bloor Cinema 7pm and 9:20pm
I got the full day planned for you today. Head over to Kawaha Coffee House at 5pm, and see me and signe Miranda perform. Than walk down the road to the Bloor Cinema and catch an Alien double feature! Ridley Scott's director's cut, and the James Cameron classic are jumping out of your chests at 7 and 9:30.


Olenka and the Autumn Lovers and Barzin at the Rivoli
Barzin's CD release party! Finally. If you haven't heard Notes To An Absent Lover yet, then you are missing out. You can pick it up Friday night at the Rivoli! Olenka and the Autumn Lovers (including, maybe for the last time, myself on various instruments) are opening.


Little Foot Long Foot at Mitzi's Sister

If you're looking to rock out to a great guitar and drum duo, than this is your night. Little Foot Long Foot are a ball of raw energy, very exciting. It's also a cancer benifit, so you'll be supporting a good cause.


Mogwai at the Phoenix Concert Theatre

It's either the Phoenix for Mogwai or the Kool Haus for Franz Ferdinand.... Kool Haus is a better venue, but seeing Mogwai might be cheaper.... you know what? I'd see Mogwai, they've been around longer, and deserve your respect.


The 400 Blows playing at Revue Cinema 9:30pm

Truffaut's masterpeice is one of the jewels of the french New Wave. His semi-autobiographical coming of age story is playing at 9:30. If you're interested in French New Wave cinema head to the Revue early and catch the lecture "The Genius of French Cinema" at 7pm before the show.


Kensington Prairies at Graffiti's
I had the great pleasure of playing a show with Kensington Prairies last year, and I'm currently begging them to do another! Rebecca Rowan's beautiful vocals are worth the price of admission alone, but you also get the added bonus of a stellar band! I can't tell you how much you need to see this band. Lovely songs.
