Vile Christmas 2008

The Christmas Show was a blast! Fun had by all. Thanks to Left of Here and Wiggler for sharing the stage and their talents with us. There were snacks to snack on, where bygones could be bygones. Looking forward to next years show, it just possibly might have been the biggest toronto draw ever! There are still only a couple of Christmas Discs floating around.

We'd like to congratulate Patricia Tucci as the proud winner of the Silent Auction item, the signed, and framed Mistress CD wall hanging.

Keep your headphones posted to VR and have a safe and happy holiday season.

Vile Christmas Final Details

The Vile Christmas CD is almost finished. It will be getting the final touches this evening. We've got 9 tracks of holiday goodness for you to enjoy, courtesy of the band + our good friend Chris St. Pierre, who contributed a couple of Christmas songs which he has written. The CD will be available at the show tomorrow. We'll only have about 30 copies with us and some people will be picking up multiple copies, so if you need one, be sure to get it earlier in the evening. :)

The final info is:

Holy Joe's (Queen and Bathurst)
Toronto, ON

Doors open: 9 pm
Admission: free!
Music starts: 9:30 pm

There will be some snacks for you there, so don't eat double portions before heading out to the show. I think that's really all you need to know. Hope to see you there!

First Time Ever: Vile Christmas CDs

The entire band is really looking forward to the Christmas show this weekend at Holy Joe's. This year we wanted to do something different, so we're putting together a Vile Christmas CD for the occasion. The CD will contain some of our versions of Christmas songs (sacred and secular!) as well as some bonus material that we've never made available and that will most likely never make it to retail shelves. This is going to be a very short run of CDs, so we'll have a limited number of them available for sale at the show on Dec 13th. Feel free to approach me (Olaf) or Andrew at the show if you'd like a copy. They make excellent stocking stuffers!

We've also added another special guest to the bill. John Tamm, who was actually the original bass player in the band, will be joining us to play a couple of tunes. He is, coincidentally, going to be in the Toronto area this weekend, taking some time away from academia. Back when John was in the band, we were all grad students and I was the only one in the band not in a PhD program. It's not every day we get to share the stage with a Professor of Archaeology.

The last update is that things are set to begin @ 10 pm on Saturday. There is no cover this year, so don't let these troublesome economic times hold you back! See you on the weekend!
