Sarah playing @ film festival - review

Show Review:

Today was a stellar day the Canadian Music Cafe, which included slots from Andy Stochansky and Jully Black. Sarah Slean -- who offered Jill Barber one of her comp drink tickets when the bartender charged Jill $12 for a Caesar -- put on a lovely, unaccompanied set of songs mostly from Day One, including "Lucky Me," "Vertigo," "Pilgrim" and "Your Wish is My Wish." Acutely tuned to the day's purpose, she chided the crowd to "turn the fake button off." (Similarly, Jian Gomeshi used his hosting to gig to chastise chatty schmoozers in between sets, which is probably why they ignored him when he tried to drum up some support for locked out Ceebers.)

Event History:
Sarah Slean is one of the artists schedualed to play on September 15th at the private Music Cafe event.
Canadian music will play a leading role in the 30th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) with the debut of the Canadian Music Café, a live showcase event that will feature daytime concerts by Canada's leading and emerging artists. Performers include Buck 65, Ron Sexsmith, K'naan, and Jorane. Located at Sassafraz Café's Jitterbug Perfume Lounge in Toronto's Yorkville district, the Canadian Music Café will run from Sept. 13-15, with live performances between 2 - 5 p.m., and is exclusive to Festival industry delegates.

Update, September 13
Although you might not be able to get into this show, you do have a good chance of hearing it.
Sassafraz is also hosting the Canadian Music Cafe. To get in, you have to be a pass holder, but Rossa says he’s keeping the windows open so people outside can hear the music. Artists such as Steven Page, Chantal Kreviazuk, Ron Sexsmith and Sarah Slean are playing, hoping that filmmakers will come, then use their music in movie soundtracks.

Thanks to YenC for the find.
