The Paperbacks Make It Through The Winter

Published: 2004-07-29
Winnipeg band The Paperbacks will trek across the country, where they will be joined by an assortment of other Canadian indie acts. The nine dates of the tour will take place in Eastern Canada with the exception of the two shows taking place in the Paperbacks' hometown.

The other groups that are lined up to play with the Paperbacks include Calgary's Hot Little Rocket, Toronto's The Postage Stamps, and Winnipeg's the Weakerthans. For most of their scheduled dates, The Paperbacks will also be playing with their fellow hometown band Novillero.

According to the band's site (, the Paperbacks are planning to head even further east come October, all the way to Halifax, in fact. The five-piece will then make its way to the Western part of the country to please all fans in that quadrant. Then, for some odd reason, The Paperbacks will retreat from Canada's lands and cross the border into the states when the winter snow comes a callin'.

In other Paperback news, the band's 2003 album 'An Episode of Sparrows' will see release in that far off land of Britain. If for some unknown reason 'An Episode of Sparrows' is not in your possession, you can check out the entire thing at

September 25 Winnipeg - West End Cultural Centre
October 1 Montreal - Club Soda
October 5 Toronto - Club 360
October 6 Ste Martine - Le Vieux De Ste. Martine
October 7 Wakefield - The Black Sheep Inn
October 8 Sherbrooke, QC - Le Magog
