Congrats to all the fine Canadian artists who made the long list for the 2010 Polaris Prize including Zeus, Jason Collett and Bahamas who shared the stage at Union Hall back in April of this year. Also, a hearty slap on the back to Vancouver’s Dan Mangan who just keeps rolling this year with a long list nomination as well. Dan will be back in NYC in the fall with the Wooden Birds, he’ll be playing Union Hall The Rock Shop on September 1 and the Mercury Lounge on September 3.
