Dreaming of Canada with Carly Rae Jepsen
The most beautiful sound in the world to me is that of an orchestra tuning itself to the oboe’s taut A. The second most beautiful is Carly Rae Jepsen. For these two reasons, I flew to Canada for exactly twenty-eight hours over the weekend, to see Jepsen perform with the sixty-person Toronto Symphony Orchestra, in a sold-out performance for twenty-six hundred of the purest souls in pop fandom and, possibly, the world. “I’m so happy that it’s almost like I’m uncomfortable!” Jepsen gasped... more

Marshall makes most of main stage jazz fest show
Amanda Marshall hasn’t released album since 2001. She doesn’t have a Twitter account, a Facebook page or a website. But based on her performance Friday night at the SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival, the only reasonable explanation for her absence is that she’s been cryogenically frozen for the last 16 years. She looks and sounds exactly the same. Her concert was a 1995 dream come true. And damn, did those songs hold up.
