Bienvenue Les Poules


What with all the Obamabanananess this week I've been remiss update-wise. So you're getting late notice that AIMToronto (the Association of Improvising Musicians) is doing another of its "Interface" series, in which locals improvise with visiting heavyweights. This time around the guests are Les Poules ("The Chicks"), the longstanding trio of Joane Hétu (sax & vox), Diane Labrosse (sampler) and Danielle Palardy Roger (percussion) from Montreal, who have been major contributors to the Quebec musique actuelle scene for some 28 years, not to mention a strong feminist presence in the improvimentalist thing internationally.

They'll be at Parkdale's own avant-living-room Somewhere There in various configurations with T-dot types tonight and tomorrow at 8 pm and Sunday afternoon at 3:30 pm. Tix are $15 ($10 for members, students, seniors, unemployed, "etc.") or $30 for all three shows. My particular recommendation goes to the Sunday matinee, which features a full Poules set as well as Labrosse and Roger playing with local accordionists Erin Crickett and the great Tiina Kiik, and Hétu with clarinetist Ronda Rindone and sax fella Jeremy Strachan (Feuermusik). Don't sleep.
