My friend and colleague James Keast invited me to a Jays game on Sunday and it seemed like a great place for us to talk about jocks vs. music nerds, his work at Exclaim!, his role at the Polaris Music Prize and tips for jurors, his take on Arts & Crafts and their Field Trip show, his recent vacation to Prague, this idiot Lawrence who sat behind us and would not shut up, the Rolling Stones, NXNE this week and more. You’ll hear all of this from innings seven to nine, Texas Rangers vs. Toronto Blue Jays, June 9, 2013.
A new supergroup called the Good Family crosses generations, bringing the Good Brothers and the Sadies together for a new LP and shows at the Starlight in Waterloo on May 30 and the Casbah in Hamilton on June 1. I speak to Bruce Good and his son Travis Good about this.
And the Rolling Stones played the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on May 25. Stones fan and Hillside Festival Artistic Director Sam Baijal gives us a report on the show and talks about why some Stones tickets are $1500 each!!!!!!!!!!!?!
