There are a few things afoot here at Cinéma L’amour HQ that I figured I’d let you know about.
First off, we had to cancel our originally planned fall trip across the east coast.
We’re extremely saddened that we won’t get to see any of our new friends from across Ontario, the Maritimes and Newfoundland again this year, but we’ve really got to focus on writing and recording right now.
It’s a bummer, we know, but we promise we’ll make it up to you!
We’re pretty deep in the recording process right now, and I’m going to be making an effort to blog more regularly on that front. We’re taking our time with it and being as exacting as possible, but the plan is for the results to be worth the wait.
There are a couple new items up at our live recording side project facebook page Getting Captured that I’d recommend you check out. One is a video I shot of the lovely ladies of Mares of Thrace (on FB here) when they played in Montréal at Katacombs on August 10th.
The Second is a tape by Shaker Hymns that I recorded earlier this summer that is out now on Dub Ditch Picnic Records. You can listen/buy/download online over at their bandcamp, which is here. It features members of Silver Dapple, Bronze Leaf, Hobo Cubes, and a bunch of others. While mixing it, my roommates were quite certain I’d lost my mind as I was positively unable to cease talking excitedly about “the boogie” whilst “Shaking it.”
We had a couple of great local shows at Casa Del Popolo this month, one on long notice, and one on very short.
Back on August 9th, a couple of touring bands had some trouble with some airplanes and had to cancel on our buddy David Mitchell of Proof Booking at the last minute, and luckily we were able to step up and re fill the night alongside our pals Glass Works Coastal and local heavyweights PARLOVR. It was approximately 3 and a half blasts.
Major thanks to David and everyone else involved, I’m super glad it came together!
A couple weeks later (and one week ago!) we returned to Casa, this time alongside some bands who hadn’t had any trouble with airplanes whatsoever. Thanks to the lovely Electrical Audio Message Board (Known colloquially as the PRF) we got connected with the fantastic folks in Begin by Gathering Supplies and the Columbines.
We had a fantastic time drinking beer, eating sandwiches and playing rock music with them, and are extra excited to meet up with them on their home turf in Chicago sometime next spring. It’ll be hot fire.
MORE STUFF SOON//LATER!
