Let's get right into it shall we? Leave comments in the comments section, click the links to learn more (hear music, read words, etc).

THURS JULY 16

Fucked Up at Phoenix Concert Theatre
Polaris top 10 nominee Fucked Up bring their exciting brand of punk rock to the Phoenix. See what all the hype is about.


FRI JULY 17

Timber Timbre CD release at The Church of the Redeemer
The online tickets are already sold out. You can still grab them at Soundscapes or Rotate This. But this is the official Arts and Crafts CD release party, so i should be an exciting night. Plus Timber Timbre's moody blues/folk performed in a church is an exciting prospect.


SAT JULY 18

The Thobbin Hoods at Mitzi's Sister
I can't say enough about this band. It's punk rock at it's finest. Just trust me on this one. Also playing are the Maevens.


SUN JULY 19

3-D films at Fox Theatre!!
The fox are bringing out their 3-D films again. On Sunday alone you can catch: Creature from the Black Lagoon 2pm, Starchaser: The Legend of Orin 4pm, Friday the 13th 7pm and Flesh for Frankenstein at 9pm!! ALL IN 3-D!! Can't argue with that.


TUES JULY 21

Le Deuxieme Souffle playing at Cinemateque Ontario
I've never seen this film, but I love Jean-Pierre Melville's films. Army of Shadows, Le Samurai, Bob La Flambeur, are all brilliant films. I expect this noir of a man breaking out of prison and seeking revenge on people who are blackmailing his sister, will be just as interesting. His Film Le Cercle Rouge is playing on Sunday if you feel like something a little more intelectually stimulating than 3-D glasses!



WED JULY 22

Frightened Rabbit at Horseshoe
I just heard this Glasgow band last week for the first time. Thier album The Midnight Organ Fight appeared as #33 in Pitchfork's Top 50 albums of 2008. If you like really infectious pop music about relationships than you can do worse than stop by the Horseshoe on a Wednesday night.

We did a tour with these lads in Scotland last May. It was really fun opening for them in their hometown.
