** JOHNNY AND THE G-RAYS turning 40: An integral musical force in the first wave of Toronto's Queen Street West transformation during the punky DIY mid-'70s; ahead of the musical curve with their pure grass roots; one of Canada's best and most underrated bands featuring founding members Johnny MacLeod's passionate songwriting/vocals, guitar wiz Harri Palm and skinsman Bent Rasmussenm; "definitely not a band to judge by their jacket sleeve" MUSIC
** ALEX RADEFF & DONKEY cd release: Founded by singer/songwriter/guitarist Alex Radeff, DONKEY is the vehicle for his eclectic, original and provoking songs; "legendary Queen Street alumni in their own right" MUSIC
** LORRAINE LECKIE'S FOLK NOIR:The dark princess of the contemporary Greenwich Village folk scene (via Toronto); "a memorable and stylistically adventurous writer who waxed two of the best albums to emerge from this decadent urban theme-park metropolis" MUSIC
** LONG BRANCH: Big city country from one of Toronto's brightest new 'supergroups' featuring Don Pyle, D'Arcy Good, Laura Pitkanen, Lisa Myers and Sally Lee; "think CSNY transplanted to 90's Seattle" MUSIC
