  On March 20th, 2013 the Canadian Radio Music Awards were held at the Kool Haus, open to the public for the very first time.  In previous years it had been an industry only event, which made for less awkward moments when artists weren’t there to accept their awards. I felt the fans excitement as [...]

SMASHING PUMPKINS AT THE ACC

SMASHING PUMPKINS AT THE ACC

      The Smashing Pumpkin made it’s way to Toronto’s Air Canada Centre just before halloween night. Billy Corgan with his revolving cast played to a not so sold out crowd, but it would be unfair to say the latest incarnation is not worthy of merit. Oceania is a fine record and a welcome [...]

THE BOSS FEELS AT HOME IN THE HAMMER

THE BOSS FEELS AT HOME IN THE HAMMER

    Bruce Springsteen seems like the perfect artist to be playing in a city like Hamilton. There’s something so fitting about his gravely voice, hard working attitude and feel good approach to his career that aligns itself with Hammertown. His Sunday night show at Copps Coliseum was a joyous reminder of why the Boss [...]

While the music that they played was absolutely fabulous, I could not get behind the voice of lead [...]

ALL I REALLY WANT… IS ALANIS MORISSETTE IN MONTREAL!

Alanis Morissette played the Metropolis on Tuesday night in Montreal, with opening act, Souleye. Souleye played quite a smooth set.  I am not familiar with his music, but his set was a testament to what a computer can do for music these days.  While his rapping was smooth and flawless, the over produced singing left [...]

SHEEPDOGS RETURN TO TORONTO

      SLIDESHOW   With the Gardiner Expressway closed, traffic leading to Echo Beach on September 15th was hectic, to say the least. With barely seconds left to spare, I parked and made it to the venue gates just in time to hear Zeus take the stage. I’d heard a lot about Zeus of late, [...]
