STARTING THIS WEEK!


A show about trash, psychiatry, love, anger, political correctness... and bad poetry.

What happens when a famous TV grouch (no names mentioned) is ordered to attend psychiatric counselling after a violent altercation with another cast member? This irreverent one-man show reveals the hidden depths behind an iconic pop-culture character (his childhood, his youthful ambitions) and shows how even the grouchiest of us have feelings too. More info here.

Coming to Bread and Circus (Kensington Market), after a successful run at last year's Bad Dog Theatre Short Play Festival.
With special opening act: sketch comedy by Uncle Mao and the Red Star Review -- in their last-ever performance.

Tickets can be reserved at (416) 925-8898 or info@breadandcircus.ca

Maya Solovey To Perform "Factor Breakthrough Series" At Canadian Music Week

Award-winning Singer/songwriter Maya Solovey will be making her inaugural appearance at Canadian Music Week as part of the Factor Breakthrough Series. Being held at Toronto's Bread and Circus - located on the main strip of Kensington Market south of College - Maya will be performing her multi-cultural sound to Canada's largest conference and festival on March 12th at 1:00 AM.
"Toronto being one of my favorite cities, I am thrilled to bring my band up to play the festival!" said Maya. "We don't usually play so late, but I once faked an orgasm onstage (just vocally, mind you) for a very late night show, to get a rowdy crowd's attention. So whatever happens this time round, I'm sure we'll have a great time."
Maya Solovey @ CMW's Factor Breakthrough Series
WHEN: 2011-03-12 at 1:00 AM
Venue: Bread and Circus

MIDEM 2011 Recap: Classical Music Out, Taiwan Music In

Estimating numbers as to how much attendance at MIDEM has decreased over the prior year has become something of a ritual. In this respect, MIDEM has become something of a barometer for the recorded music industry and the news is not good. Official attendance numbers released by conference organizer ReedMIDEM were 6,800, down 5%. For anyone who hadn't been to MIDEM for a few years, they would barely be able to recognize it for all the sections of the Palais now off-limits (including our old Press Club, much to my chagrin).
Having said that, there are bright spots. MIDEM welcomed a record number of music managers (150) as well as significant increases in attending publishers (+25%) and digital/tech companies (+29%) - trends that certainly reflect some of the growth sectors in the industry. Also, 33% of 2011 attendees were newbies, ie., first timers, indicating that there are still new players, new ideas, and people who are still willing to take their chances with music . Considering our particular economic circumstances, one might wonder why.
