this week in Ottawa: 05.15.07 - 05.20.07

Reverend Horton Heat

This week, dial613 must be missing some show listings? It seems like a bit of a light week. As always, leave a comment if you notice anything has been left out.

Not to say the shows this week are no good.. there's a pretty neat roster of visitors. You can see United Steel Workers Of Montreal, Cuff The Duke, and Great Aunt Ida over the course of the weekend, each on their own night.

And worthwhile local acts, including The Soirée, The Soft Disaster, Sarah Hallman, and Books On Books, are playing through the week. And that's not meant as a slight to the other local acts, ok? These are just the ones that have bribed dial613 ... can type out without over-using bold lettering.

This week's game of make-your-own-punchline: Reverend Horton Heat plays 2 days before The Unionist Ministers. (...and The Ethics play only after those two acts have come and gone.)

What are you looking forward to this week?

I really, really want to see The Soft Disaster/The Rest/The Soiree this Thursday, but I don't think I have any way of getting out there.
