Earlier on in the year, I talked about how K.R.I.T. was going to be releasing his debut LP, Live From The Underground. Remember that? Well, in the meantime – to put off the drooling dogs we have become – K.R.I.T. decided to release one more mixtape for us before that dropped. 4Eva N A Day […]

As February comes to a close, the weather has been getting beautiful – unless of course you’re reading this from Oymyakon in Sakha Republic, Russia which has -3 ºF (-16 ºC) as its yearly average. Hopefully, you’re not there but even if you are, we went and found you some our favorite up and comers […]

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra is a sensational ensemble as a whole. Though its population (and, notably, its audience) is ageing, the vibrancy of music director Peter Oundjian’s baton keeps them at a performance level on par with their technical achievements. In the early February concert series featuring Beethovan’s Emperor Concerto and Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 10, […]

Last night’s Grammy Awards were all sorts of entertaining. With performances from almost all the major artists nominated, four tributes to late and former greats, a touching In Memoriam segment, a smooth host, a show-ending multi-talent guitar jam and an Adele sweep, it never occurred to me to be annoyed by the length of the […]

Nowadays, it’s really easy to get lost on the Internet. Days can go by before you realize you haven’t left that blue glow and you’re still wrapped in the towel you showered in from Tuesday morning. It happens to the best of us; I know from personal experience. And don’t get me wrong – the […]

2011 was a dynamite year for music. We had some of the strongest efforts from a ton of big name artists, reaffirming their place at the top; and we also had a massive surge of breakthrough releases bringing us a whole new spectrum of talent to bask in. Every genre expanded and gained depth that […]

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of seeing one of my favourite singer/songwriters live. I first fell in love with Dar Williams’ quirky lyrics and sweet, folksy guitar melodies back in the days when I used to go to summer arts camp. During something called “unit hour”, my counsellor would pull out her guitar […]

The last weekend in October was one of the coolest weekends I’ve ever spent in my beloved Toronto.  Downtown, in the heart of the ever-gorgeous Distillery District, sits the city’s most valuable performance space: The Young Centre for the Performing Arts. The beautifully designed venue sports a spacious lobby with a bar that serves everything […]

Our favourite pop/country princess has a new video, conceptualized by Taylor herself and featuring one of our favourite Dillon Panthers (aka Matt Saracen aka Zach Gilford). It couldn’t be cuter.

Music’s biggest awards announced their contenders this week. There are only 78 categories this year, which sounds like a lot but down from 109 last year it’s quite the drop. The result is a mix of the old familiar names and some wonderfully new additions but numbers a little lower than usual. My beloved Adele […]

It was announced today that Adele will be taking the rest of the year off to rest her vocal cords after having throat surgery. The beloved singer (and current holder of the record for bestselling album of the year for 21) has been cancelling concert dates all year as she battled recurring laryngitis. Here’s hoping […]

Last week Project Runway played host to Saskatchewan- based rock band The Sheepdogs. The winners of Rolling Stone’s “Choose the Cover” competition, the guys became the first unsigned band to grace the cover of the famous magazine. They’ve since been signed by Atlantic and raking in awards along with appearing in the Project Runway tie-in […]

If given the chance to meet just one celebrity in my life, it wouldn’t take long for me to come up with a remarkably short list of whom I would choose. Very near the top of that list would be the endearing and multi-talented Seth MacFarlane. If you watch an interview with the Family Guy/American Dad/Cleveland […]

I’ve never had more fun at a concert than I have whenever I see The Elastocitizens. In my opinion, the off-beat funk band creates the most memorable live music experience available in Toronto. Frontman Steven McCarthy leads the audience down the rabbit hole of insane and joyous dance tunes in full Freddy Mercury-esque splendour as […]

A couple times a year, one of young Toronto’s more engaging performers steps out from behind the piano where he spends most of his time accompanying other acts (like Sharron Matthews) or playing at Statlers Piano Bar (every Tuesday night) and assembles a crazy cast of characters to accompany him to the cabaret stage (usually […]

Dave Grohl, the Foo Fighters frontman who won hearts in his endearing SNL appearance this year, won minds on Tuesday when he kicked a fan out of his concert for fighting. Pissed off, he stopped in the middle of a song, laid down a few choice words like the soon-to-be classic “You don’t come to […]

Adele, the new queen of hearts
  Kelly Bedard

I don’t think I know anyone who doesn’t love Adele. The soulful singer blasts from speakers in the cool shops on Queen West,  features on the ipods of everyone from moms to university students to spin class patrons and was even covered by two of Broadway’s brightest young stars on Glee (whose rendition of “Rolling […]

Long lost Backstreet Boy Kevin Richardson re-joined his ageing comrades on Friday in the middle of their performance of erstwhile Burger King jingle “I Want it That Way” at their joint concert with New Kids on the Block (as “supergroup” NKOTBSB). I will warn patrons of this site right now, I adore the Backstreet Boys, […]

On Friday, a legend infiltrated David Pecaut Square outside Metro Hall to kick off the Toronto Jazz Festival with a free outdoor concert. From only a few meters away it was hard not to notice how much the 69-year-old cancer survivor has slowed down in recent years, her clear booming voice not quite as clear […]

Welcome to My Music

September 2006 marked the beginning of My Entertainment World’s online network with our very first site, “My TV”. Then came “My Theatre” a few years later. Then “My Cinema”, “My Sports Stadium” and “My Bookshelf” soon after that. But there was always a crucial entertainment medium missing. Now, filling that unforgivable gap is our newest […]
