Loyalist Cove Marina: Sept 19, 2009

A last minute show has dropped into our laps, so we’re going to pack up our gear and play an evening of cover tunes at the Loyalist Cove Marina in Bath, Ontario.

Coverville: a Podcast for Music Snobs

OK, so maybe Coverville isn’t a podcast just for music snobs, but it is one of my favourite sources of musical gems. I don’t really subscribe to a lot of podcasts, but this is one that I listen to fairly regularly and, I must say, a show which has led me to discover a lot of great tunes which I’m not sure I otherwise would have heard. I’m not going to list them off right now, but that’s mostly because I hope to list off a lot of these songs in future....

If you’re in or near Sarnia, ON today (Feb 28th, 2009) you’ll find the band playing at Paddy Flaherty’s between about 9:30 PM and 1 AM. We’ll be playing all night, playing our own songs as well as a bunch of covers that we’ve been playing over the years. If you do stop by, please be sure to say hello! On an unrelated note, I see that there’s a new Depeche Mode video on Youtube....
