This is the Year


Ooohhh, doggies. I am so sleepy, but it's a-okay. I was at Lauryn Hill last night, which got out at a semi-reasonable hour, but it took me a while to fall asleep after the show. Even though she kept the crowd's anticipation at peak levels by not starting until after 9 pm (show was scheduled for 8 pm), it was worth every second waiting. She knocked every song out of the Bess Gardens!

I was at the studio bright and early, half asleep ready to go and wake myself with some fine tunes.

I put a couple of links up there for your consideration.
  • A bang-on review of Lauryn Hill's show last night by the StarPhoenix's Stephanie McKay. 
  • The new Arkells album will be coming out on August 5, but they've released the single Come To Light, and a cool lyrical video for it. 
  • Hilary Grist's upcoming show at Vangelis on July 12. I adore this gal as a person and an artist. I am really looking forward to finally seeing Dominique Fricot, and witnessing Moose Jaw's Megan Nash (of PandaCorn) performing solo. It should be a magical time, so come on out if you're in #yxe that weekend!
I really liked today's playlist and had a great time putting it together. I love when I put one together and it just seems to gel... in my mind anyway! :)

It's the last Thursday of June. Where'd this month go? See you on July 3!

This is bit of a past-due post. I've been living and breathing MoSo for the last few days. It's been a great ride! Met some lovely folk, great speakers, and saw many amazing musical acts. Public Animal, PandaCorn, Six Moons Later, Library Voices, BA Johnston. AH-mazing. 

It was a busy time, and a fantastic one.

Until June 19!
