  • She Said
  • People
  • Southern Ontario
  • Tortoise
  • Raise Your Dead
  • Laura’s Song

The summer gets away from you pretty damn quickly. We blinked and suddenly hadn’t played a show since our CD release party in June. Thankfully, our good friends Tiny and The Mountain, Garbageface and Ryan Ringer asked us to play their tour kick-off party at the Central to get us off our asses.

Oh, and it was Taste of the Danforth in our neighbourhood this weekend, so any excuse to get out of the East End was a good one…we did, however, stop by the street festivities first to get a couple of awesome bubble guns from one of the vendors, complete with noises and flashing lights. Mine instantly started leaking all over my pedals and I managed to zap a friend right in the eyeball with the laser (you can sort of see Laura using hers in the photo above).

All told, we were rough and out of practice, but had a lot of fun and even had a singer or two in the front row during “Southern Ontario.” It was also our first set using a Microkorg we picked up used last week, which I promptly used to completely derail “Laura’s Song” by choosing inappropriately heavy bass patches.

…if you can’t have fun and screw around then why the hell are you in a band?

You can also check out all the amazing art Laura's been working on, including her biggest drawings yet, as well as Paul's occasional cartoon nonsense!
Dog Is Blue Fuzz Pedals

SOLD OUT! For a limited time you can get these one-off pedals (each one is painted differently by Paul) for the measly sum of $60, but that price is going up soon, so act now.

Buy them off the stage at our shows or get in touch with the builder himself to get one delivered!
