Celebrate Canada Day with Music: Stars, New Pornographers, The Sadies

Celebrate Brooklyn! and the Canadian Consulate General begin the
lead-up to July 1, Canada`s birthday, with this all-star, indie-rock
mini-festival of Canadian bands. Stars are at the forefront of a
sizzling Montreal music scene, and their critically acclaimed new
album, Set Yourself on Fire, is currently setting the music world
ablaze with its brainy, baroque melodicism. New Pornographers
(featuring Neko Case on vocals) is a supergroup of pop-music wizards
from Vancouver. Their most recent stateside release, Electric Version,
an album of summery melodic flourishes and sugary hooks, has been
celebrated as a power-pop masterstroke by American critics. The Sadies,
a kind of jam-band hybrid of spaghetti (south)western sounds and
sixties groove rock, are a thrilling live band, just right to kick off
this great night of Canadian music.
Admission is free.
How very very lovely.
