Hot Band-on-Band Action

Lots of exciting shows this spring in Toronto. Not even mentioning the week that both Kraftwerk and Einsturzende Neubauten are here, or this weekend's No Means No/Xiu Xiu marathon, I just got word of some coming attractions from Amy of RootMeanSquare: April 18th, Erik Friedlander (Tzadik cello paladin of the NYC downtown improv scene, including John Zorn's Masada) playing solo at the Rivoli; May 6th, Califone at the Horseshoe (Amy says, "Red Red Meat was the first show I ever promoted. I have been addicted to Mr. [Tim] Rutili’s songwriting ever since"); May 17th, Rjd2 at the Phoenix; and then, May 20, The Ex at Lee's Palace (where I saw them play one of the best concerts I have ever seen by anyone about a decade ago, with the late cellist Tom Cora ... if only Friedlander & the Ex were going to be here together).

It's depressing that I am going to be out of town for the Ex concert, as I will be for the Frog Eyes/Destroyer show earlier in May. But given that it will be only my second trip to Europe ever, I shouldn't gripe.
