3rd Annual December Bashes

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Time for the 3rd edition(s) of our Annual December Bash, celebrating the holidays, birthdays and the end of the year. This year, we’re taking this show on the road and doing an Ottawa edition as well as our regular Toronto bash.

We’ll have party favours. We’ll have prizes (with raffle proceeds going to Girls Rock Camp Toronto and Ottawa Rock Camp for Girls). We’ll do two sets – a 6 Degrees of Nirvana set (Nirvana-related bands – get ready for some serious 90s alt-rock jams) and of course, a set of Nirvana covers.

RSVP
Toronto – December 10
Ottawa – December 17

(Plus, catch us for a regular show in Kingston on December 16!)

Coming up next!

We’re back from the east coast and we had a blast! Next up, we’ve got two shows in Toronto in September.

First, we’ll be playing Nerd Noise Night at the Horseshoe on September 3rd. Last year’s edition was super fun, so we’re stoked to be asked back for 2016. Info + ticket link here.

And on September 22nd, it’s our Nevermind 25th Anniversary Show! Can you believe it’s been 25 years already? It makes us feel ancient. Come feel ancient with us at The Velvet Underground. Tickets are $10 at the door and the night also features Terrorista and Pole – Toronto’s all-male Hole cover band. Guaranteed good times. Here are all the details.

(We’re hoping to get back on the road soon, but some shithead stole the car we used to get to gigs so we have to get a new one before we can head out of town again.)

Vids + Toronto show

We added a couple new live videos to the Music page. The sound is atrocious because we filmed them on an old camcorder BUT you can see what a ridiculously fun time we had in Ottawa (and Montreal but we didn’t have anyone to film for us there!). Shoutout to the guy who came out of the mosh pit to help put the mic stand back when everything went flying and everyone who sang along the whole time.

Next up, we’ll be playing Smiling Buddha in Toronto on June 13. See you there!

Wavelength Music Festival – February 13

To say that we’re thrilled to be playing Night 1 (on February 13) of Wavelength Music Festival is an understatement. There are so many great acts on the bill (like Laura Barrett from Sheezer and our practice space mates Most People) covering all sorts of awesome Toronto bands. For one night only, we’ll be covering The Constantines – a daunting yet exciting task.

And best of all – Controller.controller! One night at band practice a few weeks ago we stopped suddenly and two of us said in unison “Is that Controller.controller next door?1?!” We hovered in the hallway outside the door for a moment trying to ascertain whether it was indeed them. (As did another guy, so we weren’t the only ones acting like creeps.) We can’t wait to see them hit the stage.

It’s going to be a great night celebrating Toronto’s amazing music scene – see you there! (In the meantime, check out this interview we did for the Wavelog.)
