Concert Wishlist

Since I was so disappointed with the recent festival announcements I though it would be good to review some of the acts I would like to see over the next couple of years. ¬†This is NOT a definitive or static list but does give me something to measure the year against. ¬†First, though, here are the acts I’m hoping to see in the next couple of months (in some cases I already have tickets):

Bands I plan to see

Jesse Greene March 21 Atomic Rooster (possibly)
JW-Jones March 27 Rainbow Bistro
Cat Empire April 14 Algonqiun Commons Theatre
Molly Johnson May 1 NAC Theatre
Women Blues Revu May 8 NAC Theatre
Thomas Clair with River City Junction, Steve Judd & The Underdogs, Terry Gillespie and Lynn Miles June 14 WestFest (free)
Pink Martini June 29 Jazz Festival (possibly)
