North by Northeast

That spe­cial time of year is here again when Toronto gets taken over by music indus­try types and hun­dreds of bands try their hard­est to get some­one (any­one!) to lis­ten to them — it’s North by North­east! While I don’t have my own offi­cial show­case, I will be play­ing my reg­u­lar Cameron House gig on Fri­day, June 15 start­ing at 8:30pm in the delight­ful ambiance of the front room. You should come out and lis­ten. I SAID, COME OUT AND LISTEN! (That’s me try­ing to get some­one [any­one!] to lis­ten.) Some­one else you should come lis­ten to is Steven Bow­ers. I will be back­ing him up on piano for his show­case at The Cen­tral on Wednes­day, June 13 at mid­night. He is from Canada’s East Coast and he is really very good. Poetic, even. Look at how he looks at the sky from out­side a barn. Check him out by click­ing here.

Per­haps we will see each other in the madness!
