Here’s a couple tunes that I needed to write in the past couple days. I’m not sure if they’re done, but they’re fun and I accept them for who they are, you know?
Also, there’s 3 things that I want to tell you about, shows specifically. I hate to make this an advertisement for myself, but then again, it’s my site right? Anyway -
TONIGHT @ the Tranzac – I’m playing duo with the fantastic Joel Schwartz, 730 pm. He’s bringing two amps, you don’t have to bring any. No cover and good fun on an early Sunday evening.
Monday June 23rd - My good friend David Myles is having his cd release party at Hughes Room and I’ll be playing with him and wearing a tie. He’s Nova Scotia’s finest and we always have a good time.
Tuesday June 24th – Ainsley McNeaney is releasing her cd at the Music Gallery, and on top of having myself and a rhythm section, she literally hired a full orchestra, 40 people playing. That’s almost as many as Broken Social Scene ( no disrespect intended, I think those guys are great). It should be a really good show.
Ok, self promotion done. Speaking of promotion, musicians seemed to have picked up on a new way of advertising their shows, which is by text messaging everyone in their phone’s contact list. I don’t know how I feel about this. There’s SOOO many ways that we get bombarded by advertising with every step we take, and having to deal with it on my telephone seems a little over the top. Thoughts?
