Jon Cohen's brainchild, the One (Wo)Man Band Festival, will come to life two weeks from today! From May 18 to 20, it's three nights of performers who are literally one man or woman bands. I'm playing Friday night at Divan Orange, alongside Armen at the Bazaar, Cocobeurre and others. I'll also be a part of a looping workshop on Saturday afternoon. Saturday night at Casa includes, among others, Wax Mannequin, Lederhosen Lucil and Scott Dunbar. And Sunday, Jon himself will be playing at the intimate L'Envers with Superfossilpower, Camp Fortune and others. I'm so excited to be a part of this event!!
Iconoclaste, partner of the festival, has put together a playlist of festival performers that you can listen to on grooveshark. For more information, visit the Facebook event page. And for the full schedule and artist list, visit the festival website at www.onemanbandfest.com.
And in June, I'm really looking forward to talking part in Toronto's NXNE. So many great bands! So many great workshops and speakers! I'm playing Friday night, the 15th at Czehoski.
