edger Posted March 1, 2012 Report Share Posted March 1, 2012 Noticed the following was posted in the Ottawa events listing section. A ways away, but I had meant to comment on Brown Bird earlier. They recently opened for Devil Makes Three in Toronto. I knew nothing about them. But they were so, so good. Extremely talented instrumentalists, great, dark harmonies. If you love stand-up base, fiddle, etc without a conventional blue-grass sound you should definitely check them out. Devil Makes Three were great too. But the crowd ruined it for me. I've got nothing against punks per se, but moshing, crowd surfing, head busting, pushing and blood in a venue like The Horseshoe is definitely not my cup of tea. The band certainly didn't appreciate the disrespect either between getting hit in the face with their own mics and being flipped off by people in the audience. Not sure if they'll return after that debacle which is a damn shame. But Brown Bird mentioned they were returning with Horse Feathers to Toronto and Ottawa. They deserve some love.spectrasonic and punkottawa.com presentHORSE FEATHERS (Portland folk/indie, Kill Rock Stars recs)www.horsefeatherstheband.comwww.facebook.com/pages/Horse-Feathers/ 38877626075BROWN BIRD (Rhode Island folk/indie, Supply & Demand recs)www.brownbird.netwww.facebook.com/brownbirdmusicTuesday May 1 @ Mavericks (221 Rideau St.)Licensed 19+ - 8pm doors - $12 advance + service chargestickets available at Vertigo Records, The Record Shaap and www.ticketweb.cadirect ticketing link: www.ticketweb.ca/t3/sale/SaleEventDetai l?dispatch=...facebook event page: www.facebook.com/events/33175587353509 2www.spectrasonic.comwww.punkottawa.com-----follow us on twitter - www.twitter.com/spectrasonicjoin our NEW facebook page - www.facebook.com/spectrasonicor go to www.spectrasonic.com for more info on this and other awesome shows Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
