This week's entertainment picks: The Pixies, Ron Sexsmith

It's a busy week for concerts in our city, and I could've picked a lot to recommend, including the three night stand for the reunited godspeed you! black emperor, or the TV On The Radio show.  But these rose to the top for me:

The Pixies w. Imaginary Cities, Massey Hall, Apr 18 & 19
There is no doubt that these are the big shows this week.  The legendary Pixies perform their classic Doolittle album front-to-back with support from the uber-hep Winnipeg band Imaginary Cities.  It may be the event of the year.

Ron Sexsmith, Lee's Palace, Apr 21
I'm not sure what I can say about feted Canadian songwriter Ron Sexsmith that hasn't been said already.  Just go see him.
