Album Review: Attention Anyone - This Just In

By: Josh Parsons December 10, 2013


Admittedly, bands categorized under the pop-punk umbrella are not something I enjoy much anymore. Sure, Screeching Weasel and Green Day’s Dookie were an integral part of my preteen years, but I’ve outgrown my acne and eight hour Tony Hawk’s Underground marathons. Enter: Attention Anyone.

Live Photos: Lowell @ The Drake

By: Sheena Lyonnais December 5, 2013


There is something captivating about Lowell, the Toronto singer who recently signed with Arts & Crafts. She'll be releasing her first album through the label next year, the follow-up to her magical debut, If You Can, Solve This Jumble--the album she released with UK supergroup Apparatjik. Lowell's performance at the Drake on Tuesday was a preview of what's to come, dreamy tracks paired with an unmistakable energy that is both alluring and sweet. I once claimed that Lowell has the potential to become huge, and after her performance this week I stand by my proclamation. With Arts & Crafts backing her here in Canada, and an already seasoned following overseas, she is positioning herself to become a key player in the scene. The crowd at the Drake was clearly into the performance, which was both powerful and funny at times. Here are a few photos we managed to snap of Lowell and her homage to cheerleading and the Leafs.

By: Sheena Lyonnais November 11, 2013


Cherie Currie, lead singer of the revolutionary band the Runaways and author of Neon Angel, arguably one of the best music memoirs of our time, tears into Toronto tomorrow with a headlining show at Lee's Palace. Having recently won the Rock Legend Award at the Malibu Music Awards, Currie found herself on stage performing with guitarist Lita Ford for the first time in more than 35 years. The emotions that brought back naturally revved up a desire to reunite the band that brought them together.
