We've been busy, busy bees lately playing all sorts of shows. Canadian Music Week was exciting, and playing at the Horseshoe was my personal favourite considering I've seen some of my most memorable concerts there. 2am show at the Bovine was difficult- funny how you realize how fu*ed people get at the Bovine when you're not! We had to play the back line they provided, which was a bit of a shit show since I had to stand REALLYstill in order to hear anything else on the stage--- bass, drums, vocals--- not fun- but these things happen. The insane week was capped with the gig in Orangeville with the Shanks at a boxing ring. Fun to bounce off the ropes while playing, and the sound and lights that they had set up was totally rad. Yes, rad.
We are playing with the Shanks again at the United Steelworkers Hall at 25 Cecil St. near College and Spadina next Saturday (March 28) and then the next day (Sunday) we have another gig at Neutral with the Rock Ons for a weekly goth party. Still going strong......
Tonight we are doing a charity show called Pop With Brains with our very lovely friends in the State of Things. It's $5 and all the proceeds go to CAMH (Centre for Addiction and Mental Heath- how appropriate-...)
AND THEN we will be taking a bit of a brake to finally revamp our website, make new merch, write songs, and prepare our hugely amazing fundraising gig for our UK trip on May 2nd (you can check out our confirmed dates on our myspace~~ www.myspace.com/machetesband)
