Julie Doiron free Toronto show

This Satruday (Jan 9) in Toronto at the Cobourg (533 Parliament St.) Julie Doiron is playing a free show with Constantines Will Kidman opening. Show starts at 10 p.m.

It's going to be packed, and I'm planning on arriving a bit early.. I've never been to the Cobourg, but I hear good things.

Her 2009 album, I Can Wonder What You Did With Your Day, got the third most air play on Canadian campus and community radio last year. And it rocks.

Here's more:

From Said the Gramophone: Julie Doiron - "When Brakes Get Wet" [buy]
Months ago, this song came out, and it's short and perfect, and Dan wrote to me and said "it's amazing" and I said yes it is; and I probably used all-caps; but we didn't post about it because Julie's label, Jagjaguwar, only lets you post certain "official release" mp3s, which is what most blogs do I guess; but we wanted to post about "When Brakes Get Wet", and they said no; and Jagjaguwar is a wonderful label so we didn't want to make them mad; even though they are so wrong about that mp3 thing; I mean did you read that the give-away mp3 is always, always albums' best-selling song?; but anyway, now they say we can post about "When Brakes Get Wet", and so here we are, and it's short and beautiful, barely slipping on the rainy street, starsoaked, gentle, plain, perfect.
