The Casbah in Hamilton

So not having very high expectations for a Tuesday night show (we've had our fair share of really dead Tuesday night shows, and as a result, Tuesday has not proven itself to be the best gigging night of the week.) But boy, you can imagine our surprise when we stumbled into the Casbah in Hamilton last night.
There were two local bands playing. 1st was Golden Horseshoe Revival, a bluegrass group from Hamilton who just killed it. They had the most beautiful harmonies I've ever heard, and I'm a sucker for a group all sharing one mic. It creates such a great stage dynamic!
Also from Hamilton was a fantastic group called The Great Lake Survival. They had such great stage energy and musicianship, and it was a pleasure to get to play with them.
Then to our immense surprise was a band from Austin Texas, who are killing it right now by the way. They are called Bright Light Social Hour, and I'll try to find a video to show you a little bit of how they knocked our socks off. I've never had my jaw drop so hard in a live performance EVER. They are all ridiculously good at what they do. The keyboard player was a keyboard ninja. I don't even know what he was doing! In all laws of music the way he mashed that keyboard should've sounded like garbage, but it sounded like a little box of honey covered magic. I remain mystified.
I hope this video in some way shows what we experienced last night.

Canadian Music Week in Toronto

After a few days to recover from CMW, we are able to reflect on the awesomeness that occurred.
In our showcase alone there were some pretty amazing bands, and that was happening in every venue around Toronto. Amazing experience.
Huge shout out to Paula and Karol who we had the opportunity to meet at our CMW showcase. This group from Poland is not only uber talented, but they are also the most fantastic people. They are tempting me to get a 1 way ticket to Poland.
Check them out!

Thank you so much CMW, Toronto, and all the amazing bands and artists we saw and met there.

Wapiti Video

Here is a video made by Rory Hinds of the spectacular Wapiti experience last summer. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at 10am and they are only $30, which honestly is unheard of. Last year had an incredible line up of emerging Canadian artists, and this year we will expect nothing short of amazing.

We were so happy to have been a part of this, and share the stage with so many amazing artists. Thanks again Wapiti, and thanks to Rory Hinds for the amazing video.
