A crazy year so far. Human, Conditional released to a warm reception, and AA still going strong! Who would have thought?
Finally Mr. Tracy aka 1/4 of Produkt (winner of the Collab with Fallon contest) and I have begun finally the song we will collaborate on. It sounds bloody awesome if I may say. So excited to be matched up with such a talented lad.
Too bad about the Ottawa show - as always, life has thrown things at me that you know..you gotta deal with it or it could come back to haunt you :) It will be reschedule for a later date, so sorry to all those that planned to come out.
Please note you can still buy AA’s cd on the side bar below - I had some emails from people still asking where to pick em up (we are almost coming up on the 10 yr anniversary of District Six ALREADY people. Think about that) Maybe a reunion tour is in order? (see below)
I am still too poor to tour, so I was exploring the idea of doing it completely by bike with a trailer. Actually, last week I saw a band set up in the middle of the street inside a UHaul truck and rocking out pretty hard. It amassed a large crowd. These days you have to think outside the box, so biking your tour isn’t so outrageous. Let’s work this idea out.
And uh…Screech. Just because. I don’t own this picture.
Please come out to the October 1st show at the Bovine Sex Club, it’s Nuit Blanche, an all night contemporary art event here in Toronto, and there may be whips and ball gags from the event photo, and this means this is an event you cannot miss. Note: I do not own the above equipment. Check out the facebook event page here.
Lots of love, whips, and nuit blanche,
Good Monday Morning (at least it’s sunny),
The last Monday of Summer will be Manic tonight with myself and Draco over at www.tksradio.com. This has been a crazy summer, filled with lots of zany activities including watching a lizard have its babies on Animal Planet, and I’m happy to welcome Fall with more wild adventures. Actually I’m totally lying, I don’t know how much more wild you can get than lizard babies. All you regulars of MM come out at 8 pm for an hr of Draco and I’s psychowabblebabble.
Reminder we have a show at Clinton’s this Wednesday, 31st of August! Show starts at 9 with the rockin’ Oscar Tango, chills out with the Responsables at 10, then us on at 11! Bif, bam pow!
Please come on out, $7 or $5 with a non-perishable food item that yours truly will be collecting to give to the Daily Bread Food Bank here in the Tdot.
On another note, I the ever schizo musician has another project on the go that I am really really excited about. We haven’t come up with a name yet but we are shooting around ideas and then we’ll see how it goes. Will reveal more details when..well, they happen.
Sean Tracy aka Produkt winner of the Collab with Fallon contest and I have been in contact beginning on our international collab! We are truly building the song, actually it’s a bit like collab tennis. I just have to do the first volley…ahaha sorry Sean.
That’s it for now. Try to enjoy this shite start to the week!
