Wakarusa Fest 2007 - As the 2007 Wakarusa Music and Camping Festival approaches many may find it hard to shake the unpleasant sentiment generated in the aftermath of Wakarusa 2006. Whether it was the police checkpoints off of I-70 or the massive covert use of cutting edge surveillance technologies, many left Wakrusa 2006 feeling jilted. Even those that had done nothing wrong, or had not been caught doing anything wrong pointed out that such actions were not in the spirit of Wakarusa, an event with a decidedly peaceful tone.

Movement ’07 review by A. “Grimace” Virden - In its’ eighth year, Detroit’s Electronic Music Festival continues to wrestle with how to remain vital. There is an element of “been there, done that” which makes pleasing the fickle techno fans even more difficult. Paxahau, as all festival producers before them, must keep this “Detroit’s” electronic music festival rather just than “an” electronic music festival in Detroit. The budget of the festival is said to be $770,000, only 10% of which is to come from sponsorship, the remaining from tickets and concession sales. Keeping the crowd happy with a mix of new and classic techno also remains an issue.

Anticipatin' the Blue - I am a lifelong blues aficionado. It began when I was a small child in Chicago, listening to AM radio on my babysitter Liz' hand-held transistor while walking home from school. When I heard the amazing "Walk On By" by Dionne Warwick, it made my heart beat faster. Tears formed in my eyes, and I loved it. Technically, this might not have been a blues song, but it was blues the way Dionne sang it. Before I was of legal drinking age (don't tell anyone) I was hanging out at Kingston Mines and Blues on Halsted, catching every unknown band that I could. By the time I was in my early twenties, I had discovered the now-defunct Biddy Mulligan's on Sheridan Road. Every night was a new kind of Nirvana for me as I heard Otis Rush, Screaming Jay Hawkins, and Sugar Blue. My ex-boyfriend, Matt, once shot pool with Bo Diddley in the back room. I don't remember who won.

St Jeromes Laneway Festival – Sydney - This was the second year St Jeromes Laneway Festival had also been staged outside of its birthplace in Melbourne. After fairly shaky ticket sales in Sydney last year, this year was a resounding success with two sell out shows in Melbourne, one in Sydney, and Brisbane very nearly selling out. Personally, I would attribute this to a reasonable ticket price, and a growing reputation as “the musician’s music festival”. I think pretty much every band in Sydney was represented in the crowd last Sunday....

600 Bands at Canadian Music Week! (Toronto) - Let the showcasing begin! With 600 bands playing 44 venues over four nights (Mar. 7 – 10) Canadian Music Week provides a lot of bang for the buck. Or does it?I have yet to narrow down my choices of which acts to see. With so many to choose from, it really comes down to strategy and logistics rather than picking specific acts. A plan of attack may be to focus on certain areas of town per evening...

Landerado - As promised, I checked out these guys last night and they did not dissapoint! I am a definitely a latecomer, but now fully aboard this bandwagon that made a pit stop here in the Northern Kingdom before they head back down south for festival stops at Langerado next week and Jazzfest in less than two months. I am here to tell you that you should definitely check them out at either event or when they come to your city. Before I get into the show, let me tell you why I had a good feeling going in...

Counting down to Jazzfest - New Orleans Jazzfest is less than two months away and I can't wait. I've been going to this incredible musical extravanganza since 1989 but this is my first visit since Katrina. The line up is as impressive as ever. On the first weekend you can see New Orleans favourites like Dr John and Irma Thomas, rock and roll legends such as Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Rivers and big rock stars like Rod Stewart and Van Morrison. Add to that names like Norah Jones, Jill Scott, Percy Sledge, Marcia Ball, Mose Allison, Bonnie Raitt, Bobby Charles and Eddie Bo, plus literally hundreds of lesser known cajun, zydeco, gospel, soul and jazz acts and you have something for just about everyone...
