  1. awesome! thanks broseph! Man, that Jim Guthrie track kills.
  2. Great logs Todd! Thanks for sharing!
  3. Strange and wonderful! Actually, Kanter's band 'Hubris' opened for nero at our second show at a gross bar called Crackers2000. He was really good even then.. His father was also drama teacher to a few of us at NHS.
  4. HAPPY 35 year and 9 month anniversary of the sultry evening you turned from a splattering of spooge and eggs, into the embryotic version of the you we all love so well. :cool: PS- YOU CAHN NGYUEN~!~!! sorry im always so gross!
  5. What a nice re-counting, we love you too SpecialB! I nominate Fluff as a new Toronto jamband.ca contributor! Let's get some more Fluffing going on round here! Thanks to everyone for coming out, and I agree- Bob Loblaw is always such a treat to see (and hear!) in action. It's almost like being simultaneously aurally pollinated by four musically pent up bumblebees, but truly, much more so like being fucked, in the ear.. .. and Death Cake had a blast playing our second show.. Still working out the bugs and writing tunes, so I'm sure we'll have more in the months to come!
  6. Love their tune 'TOW'.. one of my favourite new discoveries this year!
  7. RIP, amen brother. Not the most timely news, but damn, talk about giving the heart strings a painful tugging Jay Dawg! I'll always remember Wheels as the awkwardly good-natured, pink-sweater wearing bass player of Zit Remedy. He brought a lot of people joy and happiness with his music. He also stood by his glasses, for better or worse. 'Everybody wants something, they'll never give up' I don't even want to talk about 'School's Out!'
  8. This just in! Doors are at 9pm! Music around 10pm!
  9. Best comedy record of the year- 'Lulu' by Lou Reed and Metallica HANDS DOWN
  10. Everyone should REALLY try and catch this next week! The performing area has been moved to the floor and it's nice and vibey. The sound is great and man can these guys play together! Also, Velvet doesn't smoke until after the show, so its a chance to see him really edgy!
  11. Wow- I immediately thought 'Glory of Love' as well.. but I prefer the Peter Cetera version
  12. 'oh maaaan, my favourite bowl is busted bro... Bummer maan!! I must call upon the jambands community for repair advice and compassion to help me through these harsh timez' Welcome back AD!
  13. I'm kind of surprised to not see any discussion of this growing movement on here.. What do you think? I think it's really exciting! It seems like a perfectly gentle and directed campaign.. I like that it's intentionally leader-less.. although ambiguous as to its 'end-game' expectation- I think their statements have all been sensible and anyone that's come forward to speak for the movement has been fair and eloquent.. A continually growing peaceful show of power that might continue for a long time can only result in some kind of change.. it's about time USA! Do you find this exciting? Do you feel like this could bring any change? I have a big respect for people dropping their lives to support this movement. Occupy !
  14. I've got a CRAvery for some good live musik!!
  15. Happy Birthday Fluffy! I hope your day is filled with meat-related treats and quirky internet links! big love!
  16. I haven't seen the Jicks either, just love their records. I also haven't been to this venue, so I'm looking forward to the unknown. We picked up our tix at Vertigo a few weeks back.
  17. No ! You guys should come! It's the album we listened to coming back from Superball.. dude from Pavement.
  18. Very stoked for the Ottawa show!! Enjoy T.O. New Rider!
  19. I thought it was a pretty fun show! K and I were on the floor next to the soundboard and found the sound to be somewhere between shrill and ear-splitting, but once my brilliant wife produced some toilet paper to shove in my ears, it sounded pretty nice. Amazing though, how low the overall band mix is underneath Eddie's vocals. He is the still the star of this show. That said, it's awesome to see a true front-man rock the eff out like Eddie. Is it me, or was he looking a little Bruce Springsteen-y with the slicked lid, telecaster and black jeans. They are a definitely great rock'n'roll band with super dedicated fans- I haven't heard Scotia Bank place that raucous in a while. Highlight for me was definitely 'Breath' from the Singles soundtrack... and it was a treat to see the other tunes I knew I liked... and ride between the rails of enjoyment and boredom/distaste for the others. Lots of clean cut dorks screaming along with 'Better Man' was pretty funny.. as well as the number of 'Tabernacs!" the french dudes behind us dropped through-out the set. Setlist from their forum: Pearl Jam Scotiabank Place Ottawa, ON. CA Sept. 14, 2011 Set List 01. Elderly Woman Behind The Counter In A Small Town 02. Last Exit 03. Do The Evolution 04. MFC 05.

  20. He's also drunk on power. 6 October in Ottawa. are you asking me out, sir?
  21. I've seen them a bunch of times, but I once saw the Dayglos at the SIlver City in Banff when I was working at Sunshine Village- in the season of 95/96. Cretin wasn't there, so it was just Jimbo on vocals. Might have been the little man in a canoe tour. It was their tour ender and they were doing a shot at the start of every song. in the middle of TwoDogsFucking, the rythm guitar player spewed puke all over himself and his guitar and didn't miss a note. I was very impressed. Jesus Bonehead rules.
  22. You guys are playing with 'Wicked Grin'? That was one of rubberdinghy's favourite bands from Bluesfest...!
