LINKIN PARK: The Carnivores Tour

At a live multi-media press conference from MILK Studios in Los Angeles, Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda of LINKIN PARK and Jared Leto of THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS announced they will join forces this summer for The Carnivores Tour, with special guest AFI.

Fans were able to watch and participate in the hi-tech conference in real-time, through VyRT, an interactive social media theater that enables live events to be broadcast in high quality worldwide.

The Carnivores Tour, sponsored in-part by Infinity and promoted by Live Nation, will kick-off on Friday, August 8 in West Palm Beach at the Cruzan Amphitheatre and will hit 25 cities in every part of the country and will include three shows in Canada. The three multi-platinum bands will bring an unforgettable night of music featuring some of the biggest rock & alternative radio hits from the past decade.

In explaining the unusual name of the tour, co-lead singer of LINKIN PARK Mike Shinoda says, “Carnivores is a metaphor that is meant to convey an appetite for something visceral and substantive, and I feel that’s exactly the hunger this tour will feed.” Jared Leto of THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS adds, ‎”We are so excited to join our friends on this epic journey. It’s going to be the adventure of a lifetime.”

Onstage, Donald and Walter will be joined by those same eight “brilliant” supporting musicians: Keith Carlock on drums, Freddie Washington on bass, Jim Beard on keyboards, Jon Herington on guitar, Michael Leonhart on trumpet and keys, Jim Pugh on trombone, Roger Rosenberg on baritone saxophone and Walt Weiskopf on saxophone, along with three “superb,” soulful songbirds: La Tanya Hall, Carolyn Leonhart-Escoffery and Cindy Mizelle. Together, they will treat audiences to selections from The Dan’s extraordinary four-decade catalog, rich with infectious tunes, bodacious harmonies, irresistible grooves, and sleek, subversive lyrics, punctuated by blazing solo work and rich ensembles.

15th AnnualScotiabank BuskerFest

15th AnnualScotiabank BuskerFest in support of Epilepsy Toronto.

Announces New and Returning Acts from around the Globe!

AUGUST 21-24, 2014 throughout the Downtown Yonge Neighbourhood.

Epilepsy Toronto is pleased to present their signature fundraising event, Scotiabank BuskerFest. In partnership with the Downtown Yonge BIA, they are proud to announce an outstanding roster of international and Canadian acts, both new and returning, for the 15th edition of Toronto’s international street performers festival. Scotiabank BuskerFest runs Thursday, August 21 to Sunday, August 24 throughout the Downtown Yonge Neighbourhood, from Queen to College Streets and surrounding areas (including Trinity Square Park and Yonge-Dundas Square).

An estimated one-and-a-half million spectators attended the festival last year – an astounding success for its first year along the downtown Yonge Street corridor. Organizers are anticipating at least as many this year, as more buskers than ever before – over 120 of the best street performers in over 50 acts from across the country and around the globe – bring their world-class talents to Canada’s most populous city.

Buskers retain proceeds from “the hat” passed after their performances except for shows on the Scotiabank Stage in Yonge-Dundas Square: for the first time ever, each performing act will be doing one performance on this stage over the course of the weekend, and all proceeds will go to Epilepsy Toronto!

Kristine Schmitt and Her Special Powers – Summer Sunday Music Series

<p>Sunday, August 24, 3pm – Trinity Square

What if you were having a jam session and you’d invited Bessie Smith, Jimmie Rodgers, Ola Belle Reed, Hank Williams and maybe Cliff Edwards and Ray Charles were gonna come over a little later, and you needed a band? Well, Kristine Schmitt and her Special Powers would be happy to help out!

Kristine’s songwriting somehow manages to sound both vintage and immediate. Brand-new tunes with an old-time urgency, you’re never quite sure if what you’re hearing was written last week or whether it’s a tune that’s been around the block a few times.

And the band? Her Special Powers (Jay Danley, Sam Petite and Burke Carroll) take Kristine’s powerful, pure delivery and add crackerjack swing guitar and bass and a gorgeous layer of lonesome steel guitar. Fold in some rare and unusual old tunes and that session is gonna have to go all night long!
