Been a long time since I rock and rolled oooooh
So, we’ve been doing a lot of doings, but none of these doings involved playing any shows. Steve’s been in Thunder Bay shoveling driveways, so we’ve been layin’ low. For anyone who has missed us on the live music circuit and to answer Marvin Gaye’s pivotal question (also the name of his hit song off the album of the same name) WHAT’S GOIN’ ON? here’s the skinny:
Back in September we played Midpoint Music Festival in Cincinnati and it was in-crrrrrrrrrrrrrrredible! We love that city. Once again, our favourite cast of Cincy characters showed us a great time. If you like exciting, mind-blowing rock and roll (and who doesn’t) be sure to check out Mad Anthony (http://www.madanthonyband.com/ )and our boys from Banderas new project Honeyspiders ( http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.2471595919984.2135870.1554969721&type=3#!/Honeyspiders?fref=ts) . We left a lot of evidence at the scene of the crime. You can check out a live performance here: Midpoint Music Festival

When the temperature drops and the leaves turn brown, this signals catching up on movies. The band went on a “field trip” to the theaters to watch Zeppelin’s live show Celebration Day.
Jodi was air-drumming the whole time and we know he was correct in his air-playing, because he’s proven his skill live with his cover band “Zeppelinesque”. They just rocked the Cameron House last weekend and it was the next best thing to seeing Zeppelin live (or on the big screen).
Halloween is, hands down, our favourite time of year. Last Halloween we shot a fun-trippy-scary-ghostly video for “Ding Dong Ditch”. We decided to share it this year on Halloween. No youtube this time, but you can watch it from our Facebook page here:
Steve and I were pretty stoked to be asked to sing some Alice Cooper tunes with The Apocalypse Killers at the Bovine on Halloween. The band was a star-studded crew, featuring Ian Blurton (c’mon/change of heart/the dj booth/the bar), Eric Larock (tricky woo, klovenhoofs), Jay Millette (black halos. darlings of chelsea) and Damon Richardson (change of heart, danko jones). Yea, it was pretty dynamite. Steve and I dressed up as players on Alice Cooper’s baseball team, The Cooperstown Nightmares.
Here’s a glimpse of “Hello, Hooray”
Steve belted out “Billion Dollar Babies”
That brings us to November. Other than grimacing at the terrible mustaches we’re subjected to, we’ve been chillin’ and keepin’ it real. No shows this month, but we will be back in action soon cause we’re 2 legit 2 quit.
We have been booked to open up for Sloan at Willie Fest 2013 on February 2nd. That is correct. Groundhog Day. We will be celebrating Wiarton Willie’s seasonal prediction, whatever that may be. Whether we have more winter to suffer through, or spring flowers in our midst, one thing is certain. We will rock you. This event makes us think of two things:
One chord to another…ahhhh, the memories.
Bill Murray and Wiarton Willie, costars on screen and in our hearts.
If you are jonesin’ for good tunes, we recommend checking out the Bovine on Saturday nights. The finest DJs in all the land spin in the back room and there’s always somethin’ fun going down up front. Try a taste of Rock Candy. http://www.facebook.com/?ref=tn_tnmn#!/RockCandyattheBovine
