maybe sparrow

I was going to wait until next time I updated the listings to mention these things, but seeing as this little corner of the internet will be wrapped up in Music Waste fever for the next 5-days, here are some things not happening this (extended) weekend, that might tickle your fancy...

SWAK and LiveNation are teaming up for what they're dubbing the "Stanley Park Singing Exhibition." The two day event at Malkin Bowl drops August 31st and September 1st, with the first day boasting Neko Case, Destroyer, Andrew Bird, Deerhoof, and the Evaporators and the second day featuring the New Pornographers, Stevie Jackson of Belle and Sebastian fame, the 1900s, and Visqueen.

Tickets are $35 per day and they're on sale separately this Friday.

EDIT: via Pfork:
Additionally, the Pornographers will be peddling exclusive merch at the fest, with an advanced sale of the stuff through their website. And all proceeds from the ticket and merchandise sales go to two very worthy causes: the ALS Society of Canada, an organization that supports research and care for people with Lou Gehrig's disease, and the Urban Native Youth Association, a group dedicated to assisting Canada's indigenous young people.
Here is some Leah Abramson news:

She's got four shows coming up with Dyad. June 5th at the aforementioned Music Waste, June 6th opening for Tarkin at St. James Hall, June 8th at the In the House Festival, and later that night with Ora Corgan at Lime.

With no disrespect to her bandmates, I'm most excited about Leah playing solo at the Railway on June 23rd (which is my favourite way to see her perform). She joins Marc from Octoberman, Karma Sohn, Jesse Matheson, Eliza Rosback, and Aaron Beckum at a songwriters showcase that she curated.

Pat Mahoney (aka one of the other dudes in LCD Soundsystem), Hercules & Love Affair, and Paul (who isn't now a Christian bookstore, despite where PaulDevro.com points) dj at Celebs on June 13th.

Paul (along with Expendable Youth) is also supporting Crookers at the Plaza on June 27th and 2 Many DJs on August 1st at Celebs.

On June 18th Fake Jazz goes dance... sorta... for the second edition of Fake Disco. The Emotron, Mose Giganticus, Nihilist Party, Stamina Mantis, gr8-2000, and Eagle Road all bring a bit of extra rhythm to the weekly noisefest.

Ghost House, A Relative Distance, Blind Tiger Tiger, and My Robot Unicorn are at Hoko's on June 20th.

Oh, and I took a pass on Crystal Castles because of Music Waste, but upon actually reading (a helpful skill when one is looking for information) the info for the show, I now see that the bands are done at 11pm... so, anybody got an extra ticket kicking around that they might want to sell to their 53rd favourite blogger?

now playing: Black Mountain - Angels
