The two Polaris Prize winners lead off this week's just-announced concerts roundup, which also includes Tinashe, The Radio Dept., Austra, Bruce Cockburn and more
After winning the Polaris Prize for her 2016 debut La Papessa, Lido Pimienta finally has a release date for her long-awaited follow-up, Miss Colombia: April 17. The album is co-produced by Pimienta and Matt Smith and recorded in both Toronto and San Basilio de Palenque in Colombia.
Pimienta has a hometown release show presented by Venus Fest. Listen to her new single Eso Que Tu Haces and then trust us, it will be a good one.
Doors 7 pm, all ages. $25, adv $20. TM
Another Polaris winner touring a sophomore follow-up, Kaytranada released Bubba late last year and it did not disappoint – our critic gave it a NNNN-review. The Montreal producer’s signature groovy bounce is bringing him to bigger and bigger venues. Expect this one to be big and sweaty.
