FIRST OFF: go check out the updated listings page. Way exciting to see that so many awesome acts are making their way through Ottawa this October.
SECONDLY: here’s what we spun on the show yesterday:
Kathryn Calder – If You Only Knew
Giant Hand – Books
Balacade – Plate Glass Effect
Gramercy Riffs – Ambulance
These Estates – We Got Snakes
Clothes Make the Man – It’s Getting Easier
The Caraways – Fever
Bravestation – White Wolves
We Are Trees – Sunrise Sunset
Arcade Fire – Sprawl II (Mountains Beyond Mountains)
AND THIRDLY: We also got the chance to chat with Ryan Mclennan from Toronto’s Clothes Make the Man (but hey, some of their members are originally from Ottawa — further proving how awesome this city is). They’ll be hitting up Mavericks next Monday night, August 23rd, with Titus Andronicus (only thirteen bucks, doors are 8pm).
Ryan and I chatted about making it in Toronto, making it on Degrassi (oh yes, the TV show), and whether or not clothes really do make the man:
FOURTH-LY: This afternoon, I’ll be sitting down with Vancouver two-piece Miaou Miaou who are playing at the Elmdale Tavern tonight. You should check them out — and stay tuned for next week, when we bring you another lovely interview and many more fantastic tracks.
‘Til then, folks.
