This time around, we were performing at a cool little place called Caffe Sola. Much like our own Le Cagibi in Montréal, the space was a coffee shop featuring all kinds of local goodies, and featuring a back room done up like a mini venue: complete with stage, PA, dance floor, and a few tables. The night’s promoters, Phil and Rich of Vive productions had rented the space earlier in the summer and were working on establishing it as a concert venue for independent local and touring bands, offering an alternative to the occasionally overwhelming size of Amigos.
We were joined by a new friend of our, Ben, the drummer of Saskatoon legends Feral Children, who rocked our faces off with a great set of tape loop saturated shoegazey goodness. Apparently our touring itinerary practically mirrored the most recent Feral Children tour, with stops at the Apollo, Wunderbar, the Cobalt, and Amigos, which is pretty cool. Road stories were shared, to say the least!
After a night spent in the comfort of Phil’s decidedly lovely home (where I’m told Torngat once performed), we were on the road once again, destination: Winnipeg.
