Po' Girl, Crescent and Frost
Theatre Passe Muraille (16 Ryerson), today (Thursday, July 21)
If you enjoyed the roots-country side of the Be Good Tanyas before they tried going pop, check out Trish Klein's side project, Po' Girl, alongside Crescent and Frost. See feature, page 54.
Loretta Lynn, Martha Wainwright
Massey Hall (178 Victoria), Friday (July 22)
Tickets might cost a little more than at a Loretta Lynn casino gig, but Massey Hall's acoustics will make up for it - and think of the money you'll save by staying away from the slots! See cover story, page 46.
Oh No, Diverse, Jeff Spec
The Richmond (129 Peter), Sunday (July 24)
His older brother Madlib gets all the media hype, but Oh No is the Jackson family member you should be checking. See him with Chicago's Diverse at the Richmond. See feature, page 62.
Courtly Love benefit w/ Bob Wiseman, Pony Da Look, Nathan Lawr, Animal Monster
Music Gallery courtyard (197 John), Sunday (July 24)
What better way to while away a Sunday evening than by checking out some of the local indie scene's quirkier pop artists and gambolling in the grass while helping out the Music Gallery? See T.O. Music Notes, page 56.
Teenage Fanclub, Rosebuds
Mod Club (722 College), Monday (July 25)
If you're in the mood for something Scottish and sweet but hate fried Mars Bars, stop by the Mod Club for the shocking return of Teenage Fanclub, who've evidently been thawed from their cryogenically frozen state.
Silver Dollar (486 Spadina), Tuesday (July 26)
Rolling Stones alert! Hubert Sumlin won't say one way or another, but our bet is that Keith Richards will make a "surprise" appearance during the Chicago blues guitar icon's Silver Dollar set. See feature, page 51.
