After you listen to Ruby Slippers tonight (hint, hint) there is a big ol' world of Canadian Music Fest out there.
As the week progresses I am finding it harder and harder to pick from among the offerings. If you find yourself in the same boat, why not go online when all is said and done, and seek out the artists you weren't able to hear in person? There is enough music out there to keep you going until next year's CMF.
So, without further ado, here's my random picks from the gig guide
Bovine Sex Club with Hamilton's own Dirty Nil (played on the show)
Cherry Cola's Rock and Rolla Cabaret with a full lineup until after 3 am. including Holy Toledo
Drake Underground with Iceland Airwaves including Endless Dark and others: Skratch Bastid after 11:30
Kool Haus this is the BIG CARD with Cadence Weapon, 360, Canailles, Wooden Sky, Cold Specks, Yukon Blonde, Diamond Rings, Matt Mays, Metric. Devote your evening here, and come early!!!
Lees Palace with among others, Imaginary Cities and Besnard Lakes, on most of the music types' must-see list
Silver Dollar with fan favorites Boys Who Say No, Xray Eyeballs ( see this band at least once) and Solids
Sneaky Dee's for We Are Wolves and friends
Wrongbar with Digits, Diamond Rings DJ Set, Dirty Radio and others
The Sister with Dirty Penny, Pet Clinic and We Need Surgery
Films to consider
TIFF Lightbox Who the !@#$ is Arthur Fogel and later The History of Future Folk
Frankly I don't think you could go wrong with any of the lineups. How's about sending some feedback
