this week in Ottawa: 06.05.06 - 06.11.06

Elliott Brood make their way to Westfest this weekend

Ottawa is treated to at least one notable show every day this week, with the conspicuous exception of 06.06.06. Hmm...

This week also marks the (un)official beginning of music festival season: the questionably-named Westfest is followed in the coming weeks by both the "International" Jazz Festival and Bluesfest (plug: dial613 will be giving a rundown and recommended schedule for each, so hang around).

dial613 is making sure to see Elliott Brood and the rest of Westfest. The Hylozoists are tempting, too.
What shows will you be sure to go to attend?
Are there any missing from the list?
