Over on The Ampersand, I review Saturday night’s “Weird Al” concert at Massey Hall.
I spoke to Kinky Friedman in advance of his tour stop in Toronto on Wednesday; the interview is in today’s paper.
A handful of things in today’s paper, including: a profile of Sheila Heti; where can you buy books by Mario Vargas Llosa, recent winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature; a look at Canadian Railroad Trilogy, a new illustrated book based on the classic song by Gordon Lightfoot; and, in honour of Thanksgiving, what in Toronto are we thankful for.
In Tuesday’s National Post I interview P.S. I Love You, an up-and-coming Kingston band whose debut album, Meet Me at the Muster Station, comes out today.
In Tuesday’s National Post I sit down with Luke Doucet to talk about his new album Steel City Trawler, a collaboration with renowned cartoonist David Collier.
In Wednesday’s National Post I take a look at the short list for the 2010 Polaris Music Prize.
In Friday’s National Post I sit down with the Forest City Lovers to talk about their new LP, Carriage.
A million things in today’s paper. Okay, three: I sit down with Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall to talk about his debut novel, Ghosted; I sit down with Justin Rutledge to talk about his fourth record, The Early Widows; and I sit down with two of the men behind the new documentary film, Bhutto, which is screening at Hot Docs this week.
