Rundown: Nov. 9 show, featuring hotshotcasino!

I was thrilled to have the boys from hotshotcathedral hotshotcasino join me in the good ol’ four-one-six the weekend before last. I feel like they brought little pieces of the capital city with them: stories about the U of O campus, updates on great shows happening in the market… all of that jazz. Toss in some deep discussions about the looming end of the world, “doctors of love,” and a documentary appearance, and you’ve got the episode of Now Playing Radio that aired Nov. 9. In the hours leading up to their first Toronto show in months, Pascal, Gregg, Julien and Seb each picked a couple of songs to play and I tossed in a few more recent tracks for good measure:

Kalle Mattson – The Shore
Hotshotcasino – Ghosts
James and Blackburn – Loose Leaf
Newkid – Thunderbirds
We Are The City – Astronomers
Brasstronaut – Slow Knot
The Fast Romantics – Cool Kid

And to celebrate this fabulous new show format — more interviews with bands that aren’t just run-of-the-mill interviews, folks! — I’m posting a podcasted, slightly shortened version of the show RIGHT HERE for your listening pleasure. This episode features one full-length song as well — download and enjoy our conversations mixed in among the sweet sounds of Toronto-by-way-of-Ottawa’s James and Blackburn, or stream ‘er right here:

And in more super-thrilling news: on this week’s show, Toronto’s THE ELWINS join me to not only spin some sweet tunes lovingly picked out by Matt, Feurd, Travis and Chris, but we also chat about how they spent their summer (playing summer camps!) and I press them on which dessert is best. Be sure to tune in this Wednesday at 1pm EST to find out the result of our heated cake versus pie debate (if you’re in Ottawa, you can tune in to 89.1 on the FM dial; livestream anywhere in the world via CHUO.FM by clicking right here). ‘Til then!
