and the winner is…

No one right now, but we’ll know in just a few hours! That’s right: the seemingly interminable wait between the announcement of the Polaris Music Prize shortlist and the gala is all but over. Tonight’s festivities will be webcast live thanks to Much Music, starting at 8pm.

Though Megan and I don’t have a great record in predicting the future, we find it hard to envision an scenario where the Grammy and Juno award winning The Suburbs by Arcade Fire doesn’t take home the $30,000 prize.  But when the name of the game is to be hipper-than-hip, you can never be sure how the jury will vote.  So here’s hoping that if Arcarde Fire don’t take home the bacon, then Destroyer does for Kaputt.

Regardless, we’ll play a selection by the act that that wins on this week’s show, which will also feature three tracks from Unpersons, the brand new disc from The Pack A.D., and songs by boys who refer to themselves as Girls, and Little Girls.  See ya Wednesday!
