前瞻 '07

As we look forward in 2007, here are some highlights you should not miss:

1. The Good, the Bad and the Queen
No. This is not the title of the next instalment of the People Mountain People Sea compilation. The Good, the Bad and the Queen combines the talent and experience of drummer Tony Allen (Fela Kuti), bassist Paul Simonon (Clash), guitarist Simon Tong (Verve) and Blur singer Damon Albarn. A lineup like that invites high expectations, but the first two singles, Herculean and Kingdom of Doom, are sublime. (The album is out Jan. 23.)

2. Acting the Part: Photography as Theatre at the Vancouver Art Gallery
Strike a pose: This comprehensive overview of the art of the staged photograph includes the work of Cindy Sherman, Lewis Carroll, Man Ray, Jeff Wall, Yasumasa Morimura and Wang Quingsong. Opens Feb. 3.

3. Blank is Beautiful: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism by Naomi Klein
Also in March, Canada’s premier rabble-rouser will follow up No Logo, her bible for the planet’s anti-globalization movement, with a scathing critique of the international free market .

4. Do Make Say Think, Trans Am, Acid Mother's Temple @ Richard's on Richard (too bad not on the same date)
After a series of delays, Toronto's Do Make Say Think has finally decided to reschedule their long-awaited tour. They will (or at least scheduled to) be strolling through town on Mar. 5, after the release of their fifth full-length You, You're a History in Rust on the famed Constellation Records. Following closely is Washington, DC's post rock pioneer Trans Am, who will be appearing on stage on Apr. 24 supporting their latest Thrill Jockey release Sex Change. To top it all off, the latest incarnation of Japan's finest space/noise-rocker collective Acid Mother's Temple will be gracing our presence on May 9 to play us some tunes from their new album Have You Seen The Other Side Of The Sky?. I sure hope they can all make their scheduled appearance.

MP3s for your listening pleasure:

1. Trans Am - "Uninvited Guest"
2. Trans Am - "Outmoder"
