Mother Mother’s sound is distinctive—three voices, two female and one male, sing beautifully structured harmonies over rock beats and intricate instrumental parts. Once the vocals kick in, it would be difficult to confuse the west coast band with any other. They’ve been described as “art-pop,” a description that, while it can be useful in a […]
There’s one thing that I can appreciate about a show that purports not much more than really good music… it’s that everyone and anyone can have a really good time! That’s exactly what Ottawa got Friday night when Mother Mother’s The Sticks Tour came to the Bronson Centre. At no more than a maximum of […]
On Saturday, May 10, American crooner Neko Case returns to the Bronson Centre to perform alongside openers The Dodos. Her stop in the nation’s capital is part of a large tour promoting her latest album The Worse Things Get, The Harder I fight, The Harder I Fight, The More I Love You. For those familiar […]
Saturday night, Monster Truck rolled into Ottawa’s Bronson Centre, and turned this once Catholic high school for girls 700-seat auditorium into a spectacular arena rock show. Ultra high ceilings, a massive elevated stage, theatre-style seating, and plenty of standing room up front, made this the perfect sized venue, and despite its cavernous interior, maintained excellent […]
Ontario Scene has been delivering a whirlwind of fantastic shows and there’s still plenty of goodness in store as we head into its final weekend.

Hardworking Saskatchewan rockers The Sheepdogs are back out on a 6-week Canadian tour, with a stop in Ottawa on Friday, Mar. 11 at the Bronson Centre. This time, the boys have broadened their path of major cities to include several theatre venues in smaller towns. I caught up with the band in Cranbrook, BC, where […]
When it comes to the Dandy Warhols, Ottawa is like everyone’s hipster friend: we knew about them before they blew up, but we haven’t really seen them since. The last time the band played the city was in 2000, before “Bohemian Like You” became the hit that it did. At the time the band was […]

Agnes Obel is performing Friday March 3 at 8 pm at the Bronson Centre Theatre (211 Bronson Ave).
Ottawa was one of the last stops on their North American tour, and the sisters had some great stories to tell of their pilgrimage through Canada during the latest snowstorm.
Against Me! took to the stage to a sold out crowd ripe with anticipation and ready to rock. The band members fed off the crowd, bouncing around on stage as their infectious punk anthems rang throughout the theatre.
Veteran singer-songwriter John K. Samson attracted fans from near and far to his show at the Bronson Centre.
After a week of crazy weather (snow in May?!), we’re in need of some sunshine. Keep your fingers crossed and enjoy all that Ottawa has to offer this weekend!
