Reminder: Pitter Patter Music Festival (28-31 May 2009).

This starts today! I am working the door at the Central tonight, will be at Rancho Relaxo Friday night, will party at Sneaky Dee's on Saturday, and Sunday will see me working the door at Rearview Mirror in Kensington Market. The whole thing's pay what you can, but I hope that you can afford to pay at least $5. There are some great bands playing these shows.

Have you listened to this week's podcast yet? Tyler and I talked to Keith Hamilton, the man behind the PPMF. All the details about that are here.

My schedule:

THURSDAY (28 may)

Octoberman @ 11:15pm, Sandman Viper Command @ 10:15pm, and Sarah D. @ 9:15pm. The Central, 8pm, pwyc. The Central's behind Honest Ed's, one block west of Bathurst, and just south of Bloor.

FRIDAY (29 may)

Pick A Piper @ 12:15am, Hut @ 11:15pm, and The Fishwives @ 10:15pm. Rancho Relaxo, 9pm, pwyc. Pick A Piper promises to be fantastic, like a more percussion-heavy Caribou (which makes perfect sense since PAP features Brad Weber, Caribou's touring drummer). Hut is a side project of members of Hooded Fang, and the Fishwives are new and sound like they will be good fun.

SATURDAY (30 may)

CHARTattack presents The Diableros @ 1am, Sports: The Band @ 12am, Terror Lake @ 11pm, and Archipelagos @ 10pm. Sneaky Dee's, 9pm, pwyc. The Deebs will preview many of the new songs that they will record this summer for their third album.

SUNDAY (31 may)

Cursed Arrows @ 12am, The Speaking Tongues @ 11pm, Chang-A-Lang @ 10pm, Mt. Royal @ 9pm, and Drunk Woman @ 8pm. Rearview Mirror, 7pm, pwyc. The venue is at 193 1/2 Baldwin St. in Kensington Market. These are all bands I want to check out. I've seen The Speaking Tongues before, and they always put on a blistering show. The rest sound pretty rocking, too.

Some of these details may change, but this is what I think is happening! Come join me, or go out and discover other new (or familiar) bands this weekend.
