In the Halifax Herald it says that the Stone's are planning to come to Halifax on Sept. 23rd, but no one will confirm this. I can't see them coming this way again this soon, but man if they do, I'm going this time!! :D

The stones (rolling) just cancelled the rest of their european tour because of Keith's accident so I doubt they'll be doing anything else the rest of the year.

Well, not that this a BIG concert, however, they are playing at the legendary Horseshoe Tavern... and if you dig Ska music then this would be a big concert.  Anyways, the Planet Smashers are playing in T.O. on the 27th of May!

I knew I might get some flack for that. The problem with Rush is Geddy Lee. He needs to remove his nuts from a vice grip and he might be ok..


Link to their tunes.. They play Guess Who tunes( undun, no sugar, AW, no time) BTO songs( Takin' care of business, You ain't see nothing yet) and Burton tunes( Break it to them gently etc...)

The Illuminati are hands down my favorite Canadian band right now.  this hard rockin power trio from Toronto will kick your ass eight ways from Sunday.  their full-length debut On Borrowed Time is set to be released in the USA at the end of June.  definately a rock show not to be missed.

I saw Motley Crue earlier this year and they kicked some ass. Later on though all I know of coming to around my area are Bachman/Cummings, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Godsmack(going to see) and Rob Zombie/Anthrax(also going to see.)

tonight i am going to see Zappa Plays Zappa at the Hummingbird Centre in Toronto.  Dweezil Zappa will be playing his father's music for 2.5+ hours with help from Napolean Murphy Brock, Steve Vai and Terry Bozzio.

this is going to rock balls.

I'd love to go see The Who. But, for $200 for a good ticket and only having 2 of the original band members, it's not worth it if you ask me.

last Monday i saw The Grande Mothers (Of Invention).  Napolean Murphy Brock, Roy Estrada and Don Preston playing Zappa's music with a guitarist and a drummer.  in many ways this was even better than Zappa Plays Zappa.  it was a small, intimate club for one, and since Nappy wasn't at the ZPZ show, it was great to finally see him.  what a great fucking show.

speaking of great fucking shows, i was in Buffalo NY last night to see the great and mighty Ween.  holy shit folks, they are seriously the best band in the world.  they seem to be better everytime i see them.  everyone should see these guys live at least once in their lifetime.  preferrably not in a sauna w/o air conditioning in the middle of summer.

Yeah I caught a bit of their act at the Bluesfest here, Wednesday? I think, all the nights are running together for me now, the festival runs for 10 straight days.  Anyway I didn't see too much of them but yeah good sound/show.
