Found an amazing article about Tycho frontman Scott Hansen. It delves into amazing details about Hansen’s road to success.
One redeeming quality of the Ford family is that they have pushed many indifferent citizens to take some sort of concern for politics in Toronto. I attended the first part of the mayoral debate focused on arts and culture. It was curated by stunner Damien Abraham of Toronto-based band Fucked Up.
Here are some moments I took with me:
- Ford wants to create a mega music festival, but can’t see what Toronto has already established. Continuously praised Texas festival Austin City Limits to many frustrated sighs and giggles. The guy wouldn’t know what a good music festival was if it beat him on the head with a stick.
- New high school graduate Morgan Baskin showed some serious homework in calling Ford out on his past votes against key art hubs in the city. High fives!
Attention St. Vincent meet Lila Ices, your baby sister.
Check out her weird sounding, brand spanking new album. I haven’t decided if I like it much, but I can tell you I adore her tune “Love is Won.” That tune alone has given her album a good listen in my books. Catch the NPR First Listen of Ices before they take it down!
