this week in Ottawa: 06.12.06 - 06.18.06 (now with mp3)

The Bellrays will unpack their trumpets at Zaphod's on the 17th

The Motown soul-and-rock-and-roll band The Bellrays, the introspective (and cuddly) Bright Eyes, and punk-rock legends(?) DOA are three big-name acts that will see Ottawa this week, and I have a feeling that there isn't one person who will be going to more than one show out of the three.

dial613 is really looking forward to The Golden Dogs, whose sold-out show at Maverick's last summer absolutely destroyed. Without question, they're one of the top (and most underappreciated) live bands around; if you saw them at the Tulip Festival, then you only got a taste... it's at a smaller, in your face, no-escape venue where they will make you their new biggest fan.
Who will you be seeing? Who have I left off the list?

Bright Eyes w/ Gruff Rhys at the Bronson Centre

DOA w/ four-stroke*, layiterslayit* at Barrymore's

The Resistance w/ Forty Cent Fix*, Lives Of Many, Seeing Emerson* at Maverick's

this week in dial613:

  • another Ottawa act is featured
  • a westfest diary (with pictures), maybe
  • more postering
  • a shiny new FAQ
  • omgomgomgweakerthansin8daysomg
  • TELL YOUR FRIENDS ABOUT DIAL613, JEEZ. (but that's every week)

I saw The Golden Dogs at NxNE...as I was watching them, I kept thinking they were too much like The Trews for their own good, but the more I reflect on the show, the more I realize it was really, really good.
