Flickershow in the dark

imageIt’s been a funny old season. Last time we played the Renaissance Café, the moon went out.

This time it’s Flickershow that’ll be in the dark.

Saturday, March 29th is Earth Hour, part of a worldwide awareness campaign to promote energy conservation in the fight against climate change. From 8 to 9pm, everyone in Toronto (and dozens of other cities) is urged to turn off lights and any non-essential electrical appliances. Fittingly, we’ll be marking the occasion with an all-acoustic song-writer circle with Ellen Carol, Nigel Barnes and other guests.

And later in the evening we’ll tap into the ol’ grid again, for just enough electricity to bring you another set of songs in full-band glory. And once again, we’ll be joined by the esteemed brilliantfish and Richie Weisdorf on drums and keys respectively.

See you there!

Surrealism and Slidin’

Poster Our good friends The Kindly Ones are hosting a monthly open jam at the Renaissance, and this coming Saturday we’ll be playing a feature set. The theme of the evening is “A Celebration of the Surreal”, so we’ll be dusting off a couple of our most out-there tunes. And there will be plenty of jamming and cross-fertilization of the musical sort. Please to come and listen!

As well, next week sees the release of Ellen Carol’s new CD, Slidin’. Eli played bass on the recording (undertaken at Don Kerr’s Rooster Studio) and will be playing with Ellen on Thursday. You can preview a few tracks at her MySpace page.

C’est What - Oct 24th

PosterThe artists formerly known as F**kershow, (only very briefly, that time they were unfortunately mis-billed as such by the Cameron House, who apologized, but couldn’t find the pen for the whiteboard outside, so the boys had to fix it up with a finger and some spit), are appearing for one night only at C’est What, Wednesday October 24th.  Featuring a cozy bar, lovely microbrew on tap and in bottles, and great music from supporting acts David Hein and Adlai Waxman, it’s bound to be a hoot! 

Milestone: All four members of Flickershow will be appearing on stage at the same time!  The resulting distortion of the space-time continuum could kill us all!  Or leave us pleasantly relaxed and in need of a cigarette. It could go either way.
See yoooooou theeeerrrrrrrrre!

(And if you can’t be there, but you’re online at the right hour, C’est What has a live-off-the-floor webcast at whatsnext.ca.)

Track of the Fortnight: “The Ballad of Pine Creek”

Summer’s been busy, so we’ve been taking a break from our fortnightly schedule - but now that it’s fall, here’s the first of a new crop, recorded just the other night at the Renaissance. “The Ballad of Pine Creek” is a gritty tale of cowboys and guns on a desert night, featuring Richie Weisdorf on keys.

Gryffin Fundraiser - thank you!

A big thank you to everyone who came out to the Renaissance for the fundraiser. At last count we’d raised $745, enough to make a very big dent in our pal Marisa’s Gryffin-related vet bills.

Thanks also to David Hein for rockin’ out with a whole bunch of tunes new and old, and to Sean Howard for organizing the whole thing!
