This Week In Music 6/10/12

Here’s a few things you should be aware of:

1. NXNE is this week. If you haven’t checked out their nifty Schedulizer or their awesome App, you should get on that–there’s going to be enough amazing music in Toronto by the end of this week to put even the  most music-nerdiest of us (hello!) on overload. Expect much noise, and many fractured blog posts across the city.

2. Beach House are coming to Toronto on October 13th, 2012. They’re playing the Kool Haus, which creates a really weird Beach House/Kool Haus parallelism that makes the writer in me cringe.

As a related aside, I got confused at Rotate This and gave a test-listen to the new Best Coast record instead of Beach House’s latest record.

On the plus side, I got to hear this:

3. Bonnaroo’s this weekend. I don’t have anything to say about it, other than I’m jealous of everybody who trekked out to Tennessee to watch the Red Hot Chili Peppers play… Well. Maybe I’m not that jealous.

Still, there are some GREAT acts there. And they’re doing a webcast! Today, you’ll be able to stream Trampled By Turtles, Kathleen Edwards, Ben Folds, Bon Iver, The Civil Wars and Alice Effing Cooper.

You can stream it HERE btw. Chili’s are on being rebroadcast now, I think.

**please note: I do not consider anything the Red Hot Chili Peppers released before 1999 to be the same band currently broadcast through the link above.**

  1. No. Not at all. In terms of where I am (in London) I think the pinnacle of my summer is a tossup between the Home County Folk Festival which has easily their best lineup ever:http://www.homecounty.ca/festival09/artists/index.phpAnd then a few weeks later, I have the Searchlight gala at The Phog which is shaping up to be quite the the day too!And then, of course there is LOLA in September, here in London, which has yet to have a sub par lineup in its 3 short years in existence.My dream headliner is Jill Barber because it is an outdoor festival, and because it will be a beautiful summer night with her voice floating through the air. There’s hardly any experiences I can think of, this close to as religious for me.And the best part about all three that I have mentioned? All three are FREE. Its shaping up to be one of my most favourite summers for live music.
