Oh Canada! The Polaris Music Prize

The short list for the Polaris Music Prize has been announced!  The prize of $20000 is awarded based on the artistic merit of a full-length Canadian album.  As the site indicates genre and record sales are not part of the criteria.

Here are the bands who have made the cut:

Stars ~ In Our Bedroom After the War

Plants & Animals ~ Parc Avenue

Black Mountain ~ In the Future

Basia Bulat ~ Oh, My Darling

Caribou ~ Andorra 

Shad ~ The Old Prince

Kathleen Edwards ~ Asking for Flowers

Two Hours Traffic ~ Little Jabs

Holy Fuck ~ LP

Weakerthans ~ Reunion Tour

I don’t envy the judges on this task!  I must admit that I was disappointed that The Acorn did not make it through to the top 10.  Maybe next time!

New Stars Video

Stars have a new video… Check out Stereogum for the details!

I am trying to say…

What I want to say….
Without having to say….

I love that band!!!!

The Stars show in Montreal on Saturday night was fantastic!

The fact that this was the last show of the tour was an added bonus! The opportunity to end off a successful tour and play to their hometown in front of screaming fans and even their families gave them the energy they needed to give a beautiful and memorable performance.

Please check out the Stars!!

Here is some footage of the show I was at.  The person filming it was right behind us! 

Seeing Stars…

There is a wonderful Canadian band that goes by the name of Stars. I’m heading to Montreal tomorrow to see them at Le National which looks like a really fantastic place to see a live show.

Le National

I have seen Stars a number of times and even though I’m excited to see them again I will forever miss the days where they played the more intimate venues. It was in these bars where we crowded around the stage and loved the music and the band in the up close and personal way of the indie music scene. That will always be my favourite way to see a band!


If you ever get a chance to check out their live show it is definitely worth it. Have a peek at their MySpace page and take a look at some of the other bands they know. Support your local music scene… you never know who will make it big next!
