Hey Folks,
Quick update: We’re still alive!

We survived our 6 date run through Newfoundland, and now we’re currently chilling out in a gorgeous garden with a river view.

I am surrounded by flowers and hummingbirds, no joke.

Things could be worse...

Things could be worse…

The tour has been progressing in a most excellent fashion. We’ve had amazing shows, visited two different campus radio stations, seen all kinds of old friends, and made a whole slew of new ones!

We’ve also proven that it is more or less completely impossible to go to sleep in St. John’s in the dark.

Every visit to this part of the country fills us with all kinds of energy and inspiration, it’s truly lovely.

Many thanks to everyone who has put us up so far: Rachael, Marcel and Katherine, Steve, Adam, and the Macdougalls. You’re all champs, your hospitality is greatly appreciated!

There are still a few more shows left in this here adventure, though we’re now headed back in the direction of home.

Tonight we’re at Governor’s Pub here in Sydney again, this time alongside local indie rockers Dirty Rabbit Choir.

Tomorrow, it’s Gus’ pub in Halifax with the Wayo and the Everywheres.

See you on the road!



Hey Pals,
Just wanted to chime in with a brief little update from the road.

On a boat

We’ve made it safe and sound to Newfoundland, played a bunch of excellent shows, and have generally been having a blast.

Sunset

So far, we’ve driven more than 2000 km, cruised on a boat, played on three different islands, slept in a fishing shack, eaten many a delicious van-which, and devoured an overwhelming number of spitz.

Welcome to Cape Breton

LIMITATIONS has also officially hit the National Campus Community Radio Chart (48/50! Gotta Start Somewhere!), and is also being spun left, right and centre all across the country. Much love to all our Campus/Community radio pals, you’ve really made our day/month/year.

Shoutouts to the bands we’ve played with thus far: The Downwalls, Pioneer Video, Arrows in the Air, and Marcel Cornec (of Todd What? fame).

Good folks, all of ’em.

Chris at Gov's

Right now, we’re hanging out in the lovely Stephenville public library before heading on to Corner Brook for tonight’s gig at The White Horse Lounge. This town is a little bizarre. It used to have a reasonably big US army base, and so all of the streets are named after States. We’re at the corner of Carolina and Georgia.

Also: There is a fighter jet.

Fighter Jet!

We’re also getting majorly excited for this weekend, and our Four Day St. John’s residency. We’ve been getting some great press in town, our Friday gig is Pick of the Week on the St. John’s Scene, and Oh So Much is currently up on the Scope. We’ll also be stopping in on Saturday night at CHMR’s The Party for an interview and a wee bit of carryin’ on.

We’ll be doing the following gigs, hope to see all our St. John’s b’ys out!

THURSDAY:July 25 – St. John’s, NL – Levee
FRIDAY:July 26 – St. John’s, NL – CBTG’s
SATURDAY:July 27 – St. John’s, NL – The Ship
SUNDAY:July 28 – St. John’s, NL – CBTG’s

Cool. Here’s a picture of what happens when we forget to bring a Can Opener with us on tour.

Kind Words

“On stage, Cinema L’Amour is a blur. Brainwork cedes to footwork as Dorian tap dances across his pedal board, head swiveling between his two mics. Chris, armed with sticks, throws out time signatures and tempo shifts with prenatural ease. Song sections are rarely repeated, and you’d be hard-pressed to find verse-chorus structures, but the tunes are catchy–pop territory into which the two willingly traverse.”
Leacock’s

“Cinema L’Amour’s talent presented in Limitations is unique and incredibly driven… there’s a little bit of Buke and Gase, a speck of early Incubus, some funk elements right alongside some harder rock, at times in the same song.”
Forget the Box

“More Musicianship on stage than an Entire Symphony.”
Raymond Biesinger
