Just Shows co-founder and Parts & Labour show booker Mark Pesci is bringing his talents to another west-end venue, College Street's Smiling Buddha - pencilling in singers, bands and DJs as well as comedians. One of his first shows? Peach Kelli Pop with Average Times, First Base and Non-Stop Girls on March 21.
Bonus? The venue has a brand-spanking new sound system to boot.
& the nominees are...
The 2014 Juno Award nominations were announced Tuesday morning, February 4, in Toronto, and the contenders from our city span all categories.
Pop-rock crooner Serena Ryder has five nods including album of the year and single of the year; hip-hop superstar Drake scooped four nominations including album of the year and artist of the year; while folk veteran Ron Sexsmith scored two noms.
Other Torontonians we're psyched about? Rich Kidd getting a rap-recording-of-the-year nod, Yamantaka // Sonic Titan scoring for alternative album, and the Weeknd for R&B/soul recording.
The leading overall nominees were Arcade Fire. The Montreal group scooped six nominations. The Juno Awards go down March 30 in Winnipeg.
