Watch this: Julie Doiron w/ Gentleman Reg (live), Basia Bulat (live), Soft Copy, Oh No Forest Fires (live).

A recent show I regret missing---damn cold!---was when Julie Doiron dropped in at the tiny Cobourg bar in Cabbagetown a few Saturday's ago to play an near-impromptu free set. Reg Vermue (Gentleman Reg) was in the audience, and she asked him to join her for "Will You Still Love Me in December." Colin Medley was also there:

Joe captured the audio of this moment. (And read his review of the show, too.)

Basia Bulat's new album, Heart of My Own, is out today. She was in Paris a few days back. La Blogotheque filmed her performing "The Shore." When she and her band did this in Toronto earlier this month, it was stunning.

Soft Copy is releasing its new album on Saturday at the Garrison. Andrew McAllister from the band is also a visual artist (among other things)... so of course there's a video to accompany the release. Here's "Hot Cakes."

Oh No Forest Fires
performed their last set ever on Saturday night at the Horseshoe. Matthew from blogTO was there:
