The King Comes to Cowtown

I’m beginning to rethink my notion that Toronto is the musical centre of the universe. No sirrreeee that title might just belong to Calgary. Get out your shitkickers and fringed cowboy hats people we’re heading the wagons west. Great news today that King Khan , Quintron and Miss Pussycat will curate next year's Sled Island Music Festival.

The fourth installment of the annual festival takes place in Calgary from June 30 to July 3 at venues throughout the city. The three musicians will play the festival and pick its lineup. More curators will be announced shortly.

Previous curators have included Wire's Colin Newman, while past performers include The Breeders, Chad van Gaalen, Anvil, Tegan And Sara, Deerhunter, The Dodos, Cat Power, Spoon and more.

Remember to mark those calendars and pack the lucky panties now (June 30-July 3, 2010)!

I do hope you are listening to your own advice, Sean, and packing your own lucky panties. Mine, as you are aware, are always ready for a show.

For the record, King Khan is one crazy mofo. I can't even imagine the shenanigans he will be getting up to once he has the diplomatic immunity that comes with the Sled Island curator position.
