this week in ottawa: 07.17.06 - 07.23.06 (filled in!)

MSTRKRFT wll b shwng ff thr dj trcks fr ttw n Strdy

(step 1: introduce concept)
When it rains, it pours.
(step 2: create basis for comparison)
There has been virtually no rain for the past 10+ days, and suddenly the electricity at dial613 headquarters keeps dimming because of the severe thunderstorm that Environment Canada was nice enough to warn us about.
(step 3: complete analogy)
This week's schedule mimics the weather: four nights with no action at all, while there are three nights with at least 2 shows each, including a ridiculous seven (!) on Saturday (lots of interesting choices, too).
(Operation segue: successful)

Who are you most looking forward to seeing?
Where will you choose to be on Saturday night?

I'm hoping to see the Neckers/Bangkok show at Dekcuf on Wednesday, and I'd love to see Tokyo Police Club next Saturday, but I have no way of getting out to whereever that show is being help.

I really, really want to see MSTRKRFT...I'm doing a feature/giveaway with the album this week, and it sounds great, so seeing them live (with The Juan Maclean!) should be fun.

hi lo trons are playing at Andrew Haydon Park Saturday afternoon as part of the outdoor concert series taking place all summer...too bad things like this aren't really advertised like the summer concert series at NYC's central park.

whoa, an anonymous tip. i didn't even know about that, but i've added a bunch to the listings for the rest of the series. you're right, it is a shame that the city does some great things but neglects to tell anybody about it.
thanks for the heads up.
