“So let’s take this show on the road, boys /
Let’s take this show on the road /
The city’s getting crowded and the weather’s getting cold /
And we ain’t getting anything but old”
– Freeman Dre and the Kitchen Party
As tempting as Freeman Dre makes it sound to book a tour of Europe while on a drinking binge, I think for the time being we’ll keep things simple by driving (sober) to Ottawa, Sherbrooke, and Toronto.
A week later on Thursday April 5th we will be in Sherbrooke. It’s hard to believe that it’s only 2 hours away and yet we’ve never been. And somehow, among the multitudes of metal bands that seem to thrive in its music scene, we managed to find a roots rock band to play with (thank you Ziv for helping us out with that). If you have friends and family in Sherbrooke (because we don’t really have any, yet), please tell them about this show. We will be playing at Bar Le Magog on Dufferin Street, opening the night for Yan et Les Chevettes. Here’s a taste of what they can do:
On Friday April 20th we will make the trip to Toronto to open a show for our friend Lee Mellor at the Silver Dollar on Spadina. He hasn’t quite given up on music despite being a published writer (editor’s note: I had written “novelist”, but someone reminded me that Lee writes non-fiction. Sorry, Lee!). Good thing too. I’d be very upset if he stopped writing songs. Joining us on the bill will also be The Key Frames. I’ve heard good things about them and look forward to seeing their live show.
And in case you’re wondering what’s in store for us beyond April, you’ll just have to sit tight. Take us home, Dre …
