Ottawa music fans

The Stills, Metric, les Cowboys Fringants & others will be performing in Confederation Park on September 5th for $11.50! It's hosted by the Student Federation of the University of Ottawa; I don't know if only students can go but it's worth checking out!

I remember seeing The Stills live not too long after you posted your displeasure with their performance... maybe it was the low expectation I went into the concert with, but I found them to be quite enjoyable. Even though there's not much variety to The Stills' set at the moment, touring religiously with their Canadian peers has polished their sound a bit and has enriched their improv stylings.

The album is pretty decent for a first release.

Mayhaps I was too busy trying not to pee myself in anticipation of Ryan Adams that it was just impossible for me to fully enjoy The Stills as the opening act.

This was a rhetorical question. We all know that Canadians are cool because of their uncanny ability to use the word "shit" and new and increasingly effective ways.

Cudos to you Canada.

Privileged enough to see them open for Broken Social Scene in Calgary. It was such good times. Except for when Raising The Fawn started the show... more like Raising The YAWN.

Shittily-shambaloo that was shitarious!!!



Unfortunately, I will miss out on BSS this time around. Will you request Late Nineties Bedroom Rock For The Missionaries in my absence? Thanks in advance.

And likewise, I wish you musical adventures of mantastic proportions.

Thanks for being my request messenger. I like to let those Canadian bands visiting the Western provinces know that I'm still around.
