SONG OF THE WEEK: John K. Samson, “When I Write My Master’s Thesis”

We’re back! Back with a vengeance and a better understanding of time management. Yes, we’ll be doing songs of the week instead of songs of the day… just seems a bit more feasible, doesn’t it? In other “not biting off more than we can chew” news, we’re not going to attempt to keep Toronto show listings updated (there are just so many, all the time!) but rather re-direct you to some fantastic listings and venues sites. Head on over here to check it out.

Also, we’ll be back in radio action this week with our “highly anticipated” end-of-2011-review review show — yes, you read that correctly — where we’ll share some of the highlights from our four-hour mega show from Dec. 28. That’ll cap off our sleepy January as we gear up for an incredible next few months (several guests already in the works for February shows, and dare I start talking about CMW already?).

But for right here, right now: a slightly more well-known artist for today’s track of the day. The Weakerthans frontman John K. Samson releases his solo album “Provincial” today and if you’re currently in Toronto, I’d strongly suggest heading over to Soundscapes tonight for an intimate in-store performance at 7pm. If you’re reading this from the nation’s capital, however, fear not — Samson will be touring in March, visiting Ottawa on the 8th for a show at Mavericks and returning to Toronto for a show at the Great Hall during CMW.

Be sure to tune in to the show tomorrow at 1pm EST on or CHUO 89.1FM in Ottawa!
