Who's got the real power in the music industry? According to British magazine Q, Bono.

After polling top music industry executives, Q proclaimed Bono the "Most Powerful Man In Music." The executives based their decision on Bono's clout with world leaders like George W. Bush and The Pope, as well as U2's immense popularity. Doug Morris, the head of Universal, was second on the list, Eminem was third and L. Lowry Mays, founder of Clear Channel, was #4.

Emo darlings Dashboard Confessional have posted two versions of a new song free for downloading on their official website. One version of the song, "Tonight I'll Take What I Can Get," foreshadows Dashboard's upcoming "Unplugged" album. That album will be released by Vagrant on December 3. Dashboard Confessional are currently on tour — catch them on October 16 at the Metropolis in Montreal or October 17 in Toronto at the Kool Haus.

There are loads of big city concerts coming up. First off, ChartAttack's new favourite band, Soundtrack Of Our Lives, will be returning to Toronto on November 9 for a show at the Opera House. Tickets are only $20 and they're on sale now. Other upcoming T.O. shows include Garland Jeffreys on October 20 at the Horseshoe, Jurassic 5 and The Beatnuts at the Guvernment on October 27, Goo Goo Dolls at Massey Hall on November 4, The Music (billed as "the best unsigned band in Britain") at Lee's Palace, also on November 4 and Aimee Mann on November 8 at the Palais Royale.

Over in Vancouver, George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic will make an appearance at the Commodore Ballroom on November 10. The Commodore will also be hosting Beth Orton on November 19 and the Docs Rock charity concert on November 23. Elsewhere in Vancouver, Bic Runga will be at the Green Room on October 15, October 28 and November 5 and The Cheiftains will be at The Orpheum Theatre on November 26 (and at the Royal Theatre in Victoria on November 27). Finally, Blue Rodeo have beefed up their Western dates, adding second shows in many cities. For a full list of shows, visit the band's website.
