Tonight! Kevin Drew and Kurt Cobain!

No one can accuse Kevin Drew of not being accomplished. He co-founded Broken Social Scene with Brendan Canning, and before that, K.C. Accidental with Charles Spearin.  He assisted in the founding of the video direction company, Experimental Parachute Movement, which directed several Broken Social Scene videos, as well as videos for  Apostle of Hustle, Constantines, Stars, Still Life Still,  and The Most Serene Republic.  Drew wrote and directed a short film inspired by and starring his former wife, Leslie Feist, called "The Water".  Along the way, he has also managed to carve out a solo career, having just released his second solo album, Darlings.  Darlings is on the Arts and Crafts Label, which, you guessed it, he co-founded, along with Jeffrey Remedios.  Tonight, Kevin stops by the Broom Closet to perform an acoustic set of tunes from his new album.

Hard to believe, but it has now been twenty years since the death of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain.  Tonight will feature a tribute to Cobain, featuring such guests as Randy Bachman, Coeur de pirate, Jann Arden, Nardwuar the Human Serviette and Lana Gay of CBC Music. 

As always, there will be The Magnificent Seven, the top seven new tracks of the week, 

a Nod To The Gods Of Rock and Roll,

 Ten O'Clock With Tom (Waits),

and lastly, George tucks you into bed with  for The Big Lie Down, or The Collective Horizontal, with the mellowest of tunes.

You can hear The Strombo Show on CBC Radio 2 on Sunday nights, from 8 to 11 pm.
See you there!  ;)
