At Long Last

The Zoilus gig guide calendar has been updated, with fairly detailed listings for June and even a start at July. And what will you find therein? Cecil Taylor! The Rob Brown Trio! CSS! The Spanish Harlem Orchestra! Ozomatli! Keren Ann! Joe Boyd! Junior Boys! Dirty Dozen Brass Band! Rufus Wainwright! Tim Hecker! Hidden Cameras! Harborfront tropical festivals! Manu Chao! The Ex! Rickie Lee Jones! Antibalas! Vijay Iyer! The Boredoms! Toumani Dibante! Slint! Fred Eaglesmith! De La Soul!

Sounds summery, doesn't it? Well, except for that Tim Hecker.

POSTSCRIPT (Monday June 4): North by Northeast and Luminato listings now added to the schedule. Apologies for any and all typos. They probably won't be fixed. I'll have a few NXNE picks in the Globe and Mail this week too (coming out on Thurs. I believe - I'll let you know). Sorry for the current reduction of Zoilus to a listings rag. Blah blah book blah book blah book. I'd be eager to have any readers' reviews of the shows that I currently can't attend, like the Cecil Taylor show, tonight's Rob Brown show, or any of the others over in the sidebar or given double-star ratings in the gig guide. Just email.

ALSO: Having just dealt with NXNE mostly on my own, and with the Jazz Festival coming up, I realize that the post of Zoilus Listings Jazz Helper really should be filled. If you're available and interested (probably best if you're interested in improv and experimental jazz, this site's main focus, but with enough interest in more traditional and fusion jazz to watch those listings too), the job comes with a very small honorarium and the satisfaction of helping the artists find audiences. Amazingly, email works for this function too.

And Cecil was worth every star. What an amazing show.

The Ex! Scratchy Scandinavians, huzzah.

notice that the author has also bestowed a triple astro note to the ex, so like a blue moon, looks like it gets dished twice in june oo7!

So are you going to the Clientele show? There seems to be a lot going on that night, which is a pity from their standpoint.

ooooh... the rare and coveted "Zoilus 3 star super duper recommended rating" for Cecil Taylor. How many times do you dish that out each year?
