D-Sisive CD release party
Reverb (651 Queen West), tonight (Thursday, May 29)
You never can tell what sort of craziness you’ll encounter at a show involving hip-hop cut-up D-Sisive, and considering he’s been boldy jacking Iggy Pop and Tom Waits tunes lately, anything could happen.
Walter Meego, The Presets
Lee’s Palace (529 Bloor West), Saturday (May 31)
Calling all Ugly Betty fans: be the first on your block to hear the latest Walter Meego songs (that haven’t yet been used on the program) when the Chicago-based blogger faves preview their new Voyager album at Lee’s.
Eddie Shaw & the Wolf Gang
Silver Dollar (486 Spadina), Saturday (May 31)
Eddie Shaw is one of the select few living musicians who can claim to have gigged with Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf and Magic Sam – and none can blow a saxophone like Shaw. It’ll be a party. See Q&A online at www.nowtoronto.com.
Sound Academy (11 Polson), Monday (June 2)
Now that everyone is buzzing about Santogold being the new M.I.A., the original model has been all but forgotten. Hopefully, M.I.A. will bust out some new jams at the Sound Academy and claw her way back from obscurity. Fingers are crossed.
Sea Wolf, Jealous Girlfriends
El Mocambo (464 Spadina), Tuesday (June 3)
They may seem like just another group cashing in on the “wolf” band craze, but Alex Church’s stlyish Sea Wolf crew aren’t boring bandwagon jumpers. Best of all, they can actually pull off their elaborately arranged orch-pop creations onstage!
