what’s the noise?

What disparate and random acts of creative whatchamacallit are we working on these days? Graydon has been putting the finishing touches on his novel, titled “The Mall of Small Frustrations”, which will be launched at Hugh’s Room on Thursday May 2nd! The night will be hosted by David Newland and will feature a songwriter-in-the-round with Ron Hawkins, Stephen Stanley, and Andrea Ramolo as well as a performance by the now-ironically-named band in one of the best listening rooms in the country.  We’re very excited about this show, and hope that you’ll be able to join us!

But before that happens, we are doing a few out-of-town shows and we’ll be part of Canadian Music Week here in Toronto. We’re quite highly jazzed to be playing two shows with The Allens, they’re a London-based band that sounds like $10 billion dollars worth of awesome, and their new album is an actual explosion of good times. We’ll be with them in Windsor at The Phog Lounge on Friday March 8th, and in Sarnia at the Trinity Lounge on Saturday March 9th. We’ll also be doing an in-store performance at The Cheeky Monkey record store Saturday afternoon, so if you love Sarnia and vinyl and human beings and hot cocoa then come on by. At least two of those things will be readily available at The Cheeky Monkey!

Our CMW show is at The Dakota Tavern on Tuesday March 19th at the crack of midnight! CMW is one of the craziest music festivals this city has to offer. But speaking of crazy: we also recently took part in the Folk Alliance music conference, which took place over five days at the Delta Chelsea in Toronto. Ever wondered what it’s like to go to a folk music conference? Well, here’s a short video taken at 1:30AM (yes…AM!) in the hallway of the 9th floor of the hotel:
