Canadian Music Week began last night in Toronto by holding the biggest awards ceremony for independent Canadian musicians, outside of CBC Radio 3's Bucky Awards, called "The Indies".  

We have the list of winners, but first, I need to make a special mention about the winner of this year's "Galaxie Rising Stars Award of the CBC". This band is clearly on the fast-track to stardom and to help them have the smoothest ride possible, they will receive $3 thousand Canadian dollars to spend however they want to. And, the winner is....

TOKYO POLICE CLUB!!!

XM is a sponsor of the Indies so they get special treatment.

XM and Sirius are waiting on the US guv'ment to approve their amalgamation in the US market. Hint, hint. This will probalby happen in Canada not long after if its approved in the US. So consider XM to be Sirius, seriously.
