Drew & Canning at Central Park's Rumsey Playfield
Broken Social Scene

The Polaris Music Prize ceremony is happening tonight, Monday, 9/20, at 8pm EST. Canadians can watch the event on Much, and satellite radio subscribers can listen live on channel 86. Maybe short list nominee Broken Social Scene will tune in to see if they win. They have tonight off from their current North American tour (which resumes Tuesday at the Calvin Theater in Northampton, MA).

That tour landed at Rumsey Playfield aka Central Park Summerstage in NYC on Saturday night (September 18th). The Sea & Cake opened for and some of its members played with the Canadian Collective which featured the base crew of Kevin Drew, Brendan Canning, Justin Peroff, Charles Spearin, Andrew Whiteman, Lisa Lobsinger, along with horns and others (no Amy, Emily, or Feist)...

Kevin Drew announced at the outset that the band was going to just play for two hours, and he was true to his words. Aside from occasional pauses to introduce songs or various band members (and to send several of them crowd-surfing into the audience), the group went through one song after another. As expected, there was an emphasis on its latest album, Spring's "Forgiveness Rock Record," but BSS played many of its well-known tunes, including "7/4 (Shoreline)," "Fire Eyed Boy," "Superconnected," "Looks Just Like the Sun," and "Lover's Spit."-[Podcastparty]
