Friends and music-lovers! After a bit of a blog hiatus, it’s Canadian Music Week 2016 and we’re going to be all around town between now and the end of the weekend, so I wanted to let you know in hopes that you might come join us at one of our 3 showcases.
First up, tonight, Thursday, May 5 at 11pm at C’est What? – It’s a special quartet version of the band (me-koto, guitar, vocals, Charles James – double bass, vocals, Ryan Granville-Martin – drums, Jocelyn Barth – vocals), and if our rehearsals are any indicator, it’s going to be rad! (Check out the interview I did for examiner.com HERE)

Our second showcase is Saturday, May 7 at 3pm at Drake One-Fifty – this one is with the Australia tour band (me, Charles James and Jon Foster on drums & vocals), so we’ll have tales to tell from the road down-under!
More from CMWs passed! This photo courtesy of Marla Kishimoto.
AND the final slot is Saturday, May 7 at 6pm at Supermarket at the MusicOntario CMW showcase. This’ll also be a quartet gig as per the members listed before, and will be an amazing show.
SO, lovelies, I’ll leave you with one of our proudest CMW related moments – when The Globe & Mail shouted us out as one of the top 6 picks for CMW 2013, sandwiched in between Rihanna & Raekwon. (teehee! amazing!)
Hope to see you tonight or this weekend, Toronto folks! And please go see lots of other groups while they’re in town – I recommend checking showgopher.com for listenable concert listings.
