Relatively quiet on the guest front on Friday as I was joined by Eric Wood and Joe Kalturnyk to discuss Post No Bills, an outdoor commercial art gallery the duo have developed to run in conjunction with the Winnipeg Fringe Festival (speaking of the Fringe fest, I'll have the first of two talks with Justin Olynyk of Play It Again this coming Friday at 7pm to give us the scoop on the best and the rest of the fest...), but other than that, I just played a lot of music.
This coming Friday is a busy one though. In addition to Justin's Fringe report, I'll be joined in studio by This Hisses, who will play a live set and talk about their new record Surf Noir, which gets its CD release on July 23rd at the Pyramid. I'll also be talking to The Burning Hell who have a great new record called Flux Capacitor. In addition to quizzing them about whether they're Back To The Future fans, we'll be talking Brandon Folk Festival where they play July 22nd and 24th.
The following week I've got the second of two Fringe reports from Justin, wrapping things up with his top picks, and I've also confirmed an interview with Charlotte Cornfield, who will be playing the Times Change(d) on July 28th. Mark your calendar because this is an up-and-comer you don't want to miss. Still waiting to hear if I'll be talking to the Sheepdogs, who will be closing off the Brandon Folk Festival on the 24th, but fingers-crossed I'll be talking to frontman Ewan Currie about beards and baseball... stay tuned.
