Summer in the City

Just a quick post to touch base and let you know what we’re up to.

We’d like to thank those who took the time to show their support for Montreal’s TSN Radio 990 by contacting the CRTC. We appreciate it, and we know for a fact that our friends at CKGM appreciate it too.

Are you enjoying your summer? Why not comment on this post and tell us what you’ve been up to.

We’re gearing up for this year’s version of Tropical Hot Dog Night, taking place on August 25th. We’d love to have you there, but unfortunately it’s a private party.

Following that, we’ll be shooting a music video for our song “Sleepwalking” on Labour Day weekend. And once again, it’ll be a private affair at a top-secret location.

One thing you can attend is our next show which is happening on Friday September 7th at Quai des Brumes in Montreal. The perfect remedy to your provincial election blues. The best part about this show is that we get to share the stage with our old and dear friends The Unsettlers. It has been too long so we’ve played a show together …

One final note: if you have any friends of family in Vancouver, you should let them know that David is spending some time out there this week and managed to book a few gigs. Visit this Facebook page for dates and venues, and spread the word!

Our Last Show … of the Summer

A REMINDER

Just a quick reminder, later tonight you can see us perform live at Petit Campus located at 57 Prince-Arthur East. This will be the last time we play for a while as we will be on hiatus for the rest of this month and all of next month, taking some time off to rest, travel, and work on some new songs. So if you haven’t seen us in a while, now’s your chance. The doors open at 8:30 pm and the show starts at 9:00 pm sharp, so don’t be late!

A GOOD CAUSE

Admission is $10. If you don’t have a ticket you can purchase one at the door. We are donating $2 of every ticket sale to Head & Hands, a wonderful non-profit organization that promotes physical and mental health of Montreal’s youth through a variety of programs and services.

A GREAT OPENING ACT

Opening the night is Toronto-based alt-country ensemble The Key Frames. Tonight’s show is the first of many on a tour of the Maritimes that will take them to some great venues that we had a chance to play at over the past couple of years. They will also be debuting songs from their latest record “High Light Low Light“, produced by Josh Finlayson of the Skydiggers. I look forward to picking up my copy and we hope you will all do the same. (By the way, if you don’t know who the Skydiggers are you should fix that!)

AN APPEARANCE ON RADIO AND TV

At 4:20 pm this afternoon tune your radios to 990 AM (quickly before the CRTC ruins it for everyone and lets RDS take over!) to hear us live in studio with Melnick in the Afternoon on TSN 990. We’ll sing some songs, talk about recent tours, and convince Mitch’s listeners to attend tonight’s big show.

And finally during supper time, at 6:30 pm to be exact, be sure to watch CTV News as we’ll be making an encore appearance on What’s On, the entertainment segment of the news with Christine Long.

See you tonight!
