Searching high and low

Let's suppose you didn't grab a Hawksley Workman ticket in time (or don't like Mr. Workman's body of work). Perhaps Bronson Centre wasn't cozy enough for you? Then it's an evening of fun in the basement as 59 Argyle Ave. hosts its (probably, maybe) last ever house show tonight with Think About Life, Wax Attic and of course Fucked Corpse, shown below performing at Zaphod's back in October 2006.

Alternately you can take a biological and sociological field trip to Zaphod's and check out assorted flora and fauna with Montreal buzz band Plants and Animals, Poorfolk (that's them underneath at The Rainbow in June 2006) and Acres.

On Friday, you can see The Bushpilots at The Rainbow alongside The Bible Allstars and Lee Mellor. There's plenty of other stuff to see this weekend: On Friday you can see Amos The Transparent - shown below at an earlier gig - and Alex Newman at Zaphod's.

Also on Friday, you can see Laura Barrett, Kyrie Kristmanson and Glenn Nuotio at Mavericks. On the same night West Coast gals The Gruff perform at Irene's, with fellow country coaster Kent McAlister rounding out the bill. There's more western folk (or is that folksy westerners?) dropping in at Irene's the following day with Saskatoon twanger Shuyler Jansen and his spooky neighbours The Deep Dark Woods dropping in. Elsewhere on Saturday there's lots of rock at The Dominion with Good2Go (down below), four-stroke (down belower) and Captain Foxy.

Politique, Ladymilk and The Balconies play Zaphod Beeblebrox on the same night.
Sunday heats up with Sebastien Grainer et les Montagnes,(who put on an okay set at Bluesfest last year - I'm told they've done better); Hot Springs (performing at Irene's down under) and Hollerado at Zaphod Beeblebrox.

That should keep you busy. And me? Work, work, work ...
