THE WOODEN STARS – It has been seven years since the Wooden Stars received a Juno for Best Alternative Album for their outstanding collaboration with Julie Doiron in 2000. At long last, this weekend, The Wooden Stars are celebrating the fruit of their long labour with the release of a brand new disc: People are Different. It was totally worth the wait. Find out why when we speak with them this evening. Then, catch them at Babylon on Saturday with special guests TUSKS, Samir Khan’s project (formerly of Kepler).
TOMI SWICK – Here’s a tough guy from Hamilton whose angelic meanderings have just recently earned him a Juno for best new artist of 2007. Backed up by a major label, Tomi is enjoying the success of his slick new disc: Stalled Out in the Doorway. He’ll be performing at the Capital Music Hall tomorrow along with Jeremy Fisher and Simon Wilcox. But first he’ll be Hopping the Fence on CHUO.
TIM’S MYTH – What can a local independent band achieve with over $300,000 in support? We’ll find out when we speak with this Ottawa band who have recently been blessed by the money gods. They are releasing a new disc “Departure” this weekend at the Mercury Lounge.
