Ecliptical Solsticial Prequel
We were winterly wondrous as subliminal Christmas began to infiltrate today's playlist. Special fuzzy buzzes from Ox, with Xmas in the Jailhouse from Silent Night and Other Country Songs, alongside John Prine's more soulful Christmas in Prison. Also a fine rumpumpumpum-less Little Drummer Boy from the deeply felt A New Kind of Light album by Rose Cousins, Jill Barber and Meaghan Smith, benefiting Feed Nova Scotia.
Calls from Lenny Solomon, ringmaster of Bowfire, who are at Roy Thompson Hall next Friday, and Patrick Hutchinson of Swift Years, " highlighted the variety of upcoming exotic musical macaroons available in Toronto as The Season blows in.
Jason Pawlett gave us the west coast perspective of bands The Get Down, Fuzzcats, Jess Hill and Headwater, all available for scrutiny at his website, http://www.vanmusic.ca/.
Bigtown listings wrapped up the show.
Go see some live music while the social opportunity of Xmas offers you an alibi!
And don't miss the lunar eclipse on the solstice next Tuesday!
