this week in Ottawa: 06.18.07 - 06.24.07

On Wednesday, the Capital Idea! Festival kicks off its 10-day party party with a show headlined by The Besnard Lakes.
Have you heard about it yet? It's a streak of shows from June 20-30 featuring some of the bigger/hotter/I'd-never-have-thought-they'd-come-through-town indie names around (Destroyer, Girl Talk, The Wrens), along with local talent peppered throughout (Books On Books, Relief Maps, Liar's Rosebush), being held at the usual venues around the city.

You can see a full line-up and set times here. Festival passes are $99 and guarantee entrance to every show (as long as you're punctual), and can be picked up here at your local independent record store and at each show.

A better look at the fest, and 'this week', will be up in the next little while.
