Stars, The Organ Join 13th Annual Exclaim! Concert Series

Published: 2005-02-07
Count on the folks at Exclaim! Magazine to produce another great line-up for their Cross-Canada Concert Series; as usual, with ample room for Canadian talent. The 2005 bill features Montreal band Stars as headliners, with support coming from Vancouver's four-piece The Organ, Toronto's Apostle of Hustle, Ottawa quartet Wooden Stars, and Montreal artist Montag.

Only two of the bands will be hanging around for the full tour - Stars and Montag. The others will be split up over the two halves of the country: The Organ and Wooden Stars will cover the East; Apostle of Hustle will take on the West.
The 13th Annual Cross-Canada Concert Series will hit 8 of the country's major centres, starting April 5th in Vancouver and wrapping in Ottawa on April 18th.

Stars are out supporting their recently released third LP "Set Yourself On Fire". The 13-track album has been sitting on the top of the Canadian college charts since its October 2004 release; more good things can be expected for the quartet when "Set Yourself On Fire" is released globally on March 8th.

And yet more proof Canadians should be glad Broken Social Scene exists: Members of Stars, along with Apostle of Hustle, also count themselves as part of the Toronto collective. Wholly responsible for supplying Canadians with a good reason to stand in a dirty venue for hours on end, BSS headlined last year's Exclaim! Concert Series, with offshoot Raising The Fawn also on the 2004 bill.
