SS Cardiacs, whose great new album Fear the Love I haven't had a chance to mention, join the Gris Gris on June 9 at the Comfort Zone, one of the first shows I'm really looking forward to from Zoilus's June Toronto gig guide - which you can find on the jump. [...]

Corrections & additions welcome. Zoilus-approved shows are marked with a *star. Special picks are **double-starred. If it's not starred, it may mean I don't find it especially thrilling, or just that I don't know or am not sure enough to recommend it. Listings will be updated weekly.

Heh Carl,

if it hasnt already arrived in your Globe mailbox, you are about to get a copy of our new Cd with Jazz tuba legend Howard Johnson. Even better new is that he is coming to Toronto to do a free concert with us on June 30th at noon in the jazz fest before we head to Ottawa, Montreal and then Europe.

cheers,
tim
