When March Comes Marching In

damon_naomi.jpg
Damon & Naomi, in Toronto in March for Canadian Music Week.

Update: The for-real March gig guide is on the flip. Canadian Music Week highlights are included, but I am not typing out that whole freakin' schedule. I'm not nuts. Otherwise, looking a little snoozy, but that will probably change: Already beyond CMW there's the Keren Ann/Girl Called Eddie show on Sunday, the big grime show Mar. 12, the Jens Lekman love-in at Wavelength on Mar. 13, De La Soul on St. Patrick's Day, a little boom the last two days of the month - McGarrigles, Psychedelic Furs, Canadian Electronic Ensemble, Crooked Fingers - and no doubt more to come. Also, we learn via Wavelength listings that the all-star improv ensemble Bourbon Leaves is now Drumheller - much better! [...]

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. All info subject to change; check with venues. Sources include the 20hz.ca Toronto board, Eye, Now, Greg Clow, Canoe.ca, Soundlist, The Whole Note and ye olde email.
