So much to do, so little time. Have a couple contracts to send out, a song pitch for a US tv show, a massive mailout and an e-card. Realisitically, I’ll get this done middle of next week, but I’d really like to use Friday to make a big dent in that. So, quick post here. A couple of things that are peaking my interest.
-And, looking forward to seeing Laughology tonight as part of the Hot Docs festival. Late night I’ll be stopping by Sneaky Dees to catch this guy and his band, who may or may not have stolen the Dears tour bus.
From Maple Music:
“We were hoping you might be able to let us know if someone tries to sell you a giant tour bus, possibly with a smashed window. Or if you spot such a vehicle flying down the highway. Because this morning, when The Dears went outside expecting to get on their bus and head to Toronto for their show at the Mod Club (followed by a long string of North American dates), they discovered that the bus was gone. The trailer had been unhitched, and luckily their gear wasn’t in it anyway, but it’s still a huge downer. The band was renting the bus from the lovely people at HalJoe, so it’s a kick in the shins for them as well.”
This seems to happen in Montreal quite a bit, and to the Dears as well. Shitty news. Glad they’re still able to continue the tour though, I’m really excited to see them in Toronto tonight.
I’m not 100% sold on the saxophone solo in there, but love this video of Disclaimer by Montreal’s The Dears. The combination of layers of animation sandwiched on top a live performance by the band works perfectly for me. Makes me want to take Missles out again and spin it a bunch. Right up until they hit my town, check out the upcoming dates.
