Due to non-existent internet access over the past few days (thanks, Bell!), there is an abridged version of the music listings this week. However, a big week it is, with V-Fest coming to town. The Flaming Lips! The Raconteurs! Wolfmother afros! And keep your eyes on the sky…you never know, you might see Richard Branson descending to earth perched on a flock of birds or something.
As always, if you know of a good show happening this week, we want to hear from you. Leave us a comment with the details.
