NXNE

Last week NXNE took over the clubs and bars of Toronto. I was lucky enough to share the stage with Megan Bonnell at the Rivioli, as part of the Nevado Records showcase. Also on the bill were Loom, the Meligrove Band, Paint Movement & Yukon Blonde (all signed to the same label).

Megan and I also took to the part for the Live in Bellwoods series, organized by good friends Humble Empire and Young Lions.

We played some originals on guitar and one cover originally performed by John Lee Moore & 12 Mississippi Convicts, recorded by Alan Lomax.

Streamlined

Played the Supermarket venue in Toronto's Kensington village last night. Supporting Megan on drums, we opened the night for Mandippal and The Love Machine (from Ottawa).The show was captured by three cameras set up by the sound tech (Johnny - a true sound tech with the stereotypically kooky character I've come to accept from most live sound engineers).

The show was streamed online and my Mom was able to tune in up north, so that was great that family could connect despite the geography between us. It's got me thinking about future shows and expanding reach. If the iPhone does it (which is safe to assume it does), then drumovision may be coming soon to a FB event page near you.
