The Darcys are an art rock band from Toronto. Their self-titled debut was produced by Murray Lightburn of The Dears and released in October 2011. In January 2012, they released, AJA, an interpretation of Steely Dan's 1977 studio masterpiece. They are bringing that show live at Zaphod’s tonight.
Evening Hymns are on tour in support of their second full-length album, Spectral Dusk. It's a beautiful, heartbreaking album, singer Jonas Bonnetta wrote after losing his dad in 2009. It was recorded in a log cabin outside of Ottawa with friends from The Wooden Sky, Timber Timbre and City & Colour playing on the record. Catch the band live at Maverick’s, Thursday Nov 15.
Little Birdie, aka Orit Shimoni, will be in Wakefield tonight at Kafe 1870, in support of her new disc, Bare Bones. It is a collection of 11 songs recorded completely acoustically. It is much more personal than her previous work.
We should have time to spin tunes from the many other bands that are coming to town. Tune in from 5 to 6 pm on 89.1 FM in Ottawa, or online at CHUO.FM
