Stuff And Things About People
A few items before we run off to watch Kobe ditch the triangle offence just long enough to score like 86 on the Raps...

First, should Salon's Audiofile still exist (we're getting a Page Not Found message), we think they're talking about k-os. Won't know for sure until that link works.

Second, we were just listening to his record today and that reminded us to mention that Jason Collett is bringing back Radio Mondays. The schedule as passed on to us by Miss Amanda Newman:

Radio Mondays In March @ Supermarket 268 Augusta Ave.

And third, another e-mail brings us news of an Alex Soria memorial concert in Montreal. To wit:

Alex Soria Memorial Concert
Friday, March 11, 2005, show begins 9:00PM
Main Hall 5390 St Laurent Boulevard, Montreal

Canada lost one of its greatest songwriters and Montreal a pioneer of its music scene when Alex Soria died tragically December 13, 2004 at the age of 39. In a musical career that spanned some 25 years, the leader of the legendary Nils and later Los Patos and Chino crafted some of the finest rock songs of his generation. The Globe and Mail newspaper called him "a rock and roll prodigy," saying he "created a legacy of power-pop classics." One of those classics "Scratches and Needles" has been nominated for CBC Radio series 50 most important Canadian Pop songs.

On Friday March 11, at the Main Hall, 5390 St. Laurent Blvd., Alex's friends and musical contemporaries will celebrate his life and music at the Alex Soria Memorial Concert. Performers will include members of the Nils, Chino, Los Patos, Nils producer and rock and roll legend Chris Spedding, John Kastner (Doughboys, All Systems Go), Ian Blurton (Change of Heart, C'mon), Mack Mackenzie (Three O'clock Train), Id'es Noires, Chris Page (Stand GT), Jerk Appeal and other special guests.

The evening's proceeds will go towards the funding of the Alex Soria Fountains Award for the most promising local songwriter as part of the annual MIMI awards. A donation will also be made to the local Portage Program for drug dependencies.

Admission is $10.00. Doors open a 8:30pm Show at 9.PM
