Rich Aucoin during his wild performance at the Great Hall for Canadian Music Week.


Saturday night at CMW!


If you're anything like us, you probably feel like you're on a roll at this point in Canadian Music Week.  Following today's keynote interview with the legendary Spike Lee, and all of the incredible shows that urge to catch the biggest, boldest, most energetic shows on Saturday night is pervasive.  We've got a few artists that you definitely need to take note of, even if you don't see them tonight.


1. Wolf Saga: What can we say about this multi-talented artist.  Wolf Saga is a long time friend of the Fingers On Blast crew, and we're so proud to see what he's doing these days.  There's no doubt that his 10:15 set at the Drake Underground will be a highlight of CMW 2015.  He's sharing the stage with Lyon for the first time in their careers, and he's debuting new music.  More here...



2. Ryn Weaver: The Los Angeles artist caught our attention with the single "OctaHate", partly thanks to the producer of the tune; Cashmere Cat.  She's preparing to release her debut full length "The Fool", and if last night's show at the Great Hall is any indication, she's one of the most vital new artists to watch.  Weaver and her band take the stage at Tattoo at 9:45 in what will be a surely unforgettable show.



3. Rich Aucoin: Rich Aucoin headlines the Indie 88 event at the Great Hall this evening.  The irreverent artist delivers a sharp, energetic performance, and the event also includes performances by HUMANS, Pick a Piper, Tora, and Glass Gang.  Rich Aucoin takes the stage at 12 am.



4. The Muscadettes: The Montreal duo with the wild, surf sound is tearing up the Monster Energy showcase at The Bovine Sex Club at 11 pm tonight.  Sister Chantal and Kathleen Ambridge bring the music of their new "Side A" EP to the stage, and with it a new sound for lovers of noise to discover.
