"Raw Power Got a Healin' Hand"

I love it when the universe sometimes remembers your birthday and an amazing free concert is announced on just that day in the very heart of Toronto.  But Iggy and the Stooges?  Are you kidding me?  And X and Mudhoney two nights before that in the Yonge and Dundas Square.

Someone up there likes me.

Austin, TX you may have your fancy shmancy SXSW  but this year's edition of NXNE, June 14th to the 20th in Toronto is positively stellar.

I head to rub my eyes when I read about the free Stooges show. Suffice to say, I'm all over it.

By the by - have you looked into the slate at this year's Hot Docs fest in Toronto. There's a movie that might be up your alley, somethin' called 1991: THE YEAR PUNK BROKE.

BAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sean I'm dying. I actually feel like vomiting with excitment. What night is X playing?! I can't find the actual dates anywhere. Good lord.

This is insane! And not just the excitement-induced vomitting either. And on your birthday? Proof positive that the world really does revolve around you.
