I love listening to The Doors when I was a kid. I knew there was something rebellious about them . I didn’t understand the full extent until I watched some documentaries on them. Rest In Peace Ray Manzarek.

MORLOVE (9:15pm – 10:00pm)Morlove is an orchestral folk band based on Canada’s West Coast. Born around the campfire at ArtsWells Festival 2007, Morlove began with the creative collaboration of Corwin Fox and Miss Emily Brown. The duo soon expanded into a full spectrum ensemble with Hannah Epperson (violin), Christina Zaenker (cello) and Jake Jenne (drums) adding depth to intricate song skeletons.
THE DONEFORS (8:15pm-9:00pm)
Intrinsically multi-phonic yet cohesive, The DoneFors prove to be nomadic in their musical influences. Elements of rock, contemporary pop, progressive folk, jazz, world music and country merge to bolster The DoneFors’ signature sound which they’ve coined Canadiana Vanguard — a musical expression that spans genres, stretches boundaries, and stays rooted in an instrument’s organic sound. The DoneFors make a valiant attempt to defy what is hip in order to make music for musicians, music for pets, and music for music lovers to discover and appreciate when The DoneFors have died; literally.
Hannah Epperson (7:15pm-8:00pm)
$10 cover / 6:00 p.m. doors

Bob Wiseman with Mary Margaret O’Hara & Aidan Closs: Friday, May 24. Doors: 7:30 / Concert: 8:00. $15 adv/$20 door/$12 Students/ Un/Underemployed/ OPIRG or CFMU Supporters.( You can buy Tix here:http://bit.ly/13dYNXU ) One is required to mention that Bob Wiseman is the “former Blue Rodeo keyboardist,” but he has not been that person for some time now. The Globe and Mail recently called him a “straight-shooting and outspoken musician”; Ron Sexsmith calls him “the Canadian Tom Waits,” and in his adventuresome new album, Giulietta Masina at the Oscars Crying, Bob Wiseman isn’t content to just sing about environmental and social injustice; he does his best to shock you into action. If you caught his play Actionable when he was here in February, you know something about this quirky and original mind. Yes, on the 24th there will be a screen behind him where between songs, he will be showing some of his movies.www.bobwiseman.ca
Mary Margaret O’Hara’s contributions to the music world have been undeniably massive. Her strikingly original and exceptional vocal and songwriting styles have had a tremendous influence on countless artists who’ve come after her although she has not released a full-length album since 1988. That album, one of the most exciting and powerful records of the 1980?s, won O’Hara an instant, captivated audience. Since then she has supported the work of many like-minded artists and has racked up a tremendous guest-appearance discography. These last 10 years, however, her passion has become freely improvised music which she will perform with Aidan Closs on guitar or percussion. Forget the recording thing; it is obvious M2OH is most at home on stage, where her soaring, utterly gorgeous voice comes across unbridled amidst her far-reaching repertoire, revealing strong and knowledgeable roots in jazz, reggae, folk, and country. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Margaret_O’Hara
This Mad Desire is the rock and roll brand for the music of Hamilton’s Mackenzie Kristjon who will lead off the evening with his “Theatrical Acoustic-Alternative Post-Heroin-Chic, kind of like Tim Curry meets Edward Scissorhands meets Karl Wallinger, who’s also a Buddhist.” A single song I am told. It will be unique. http://thismaddesire.com/
