some shows I went to in Japan

In March, my friends from Toronto and I went to watch Merpeoples at Sangenjaya Heaven’s Door. It was a reunion of sorts since Larry and Keleng (along with Lana, Jesse, and Hiro) were the friends I entrusted to look after Merpeoples when they came to Toronto last year. Here’s a clip of a new song […]

Tour Finale in Tokyo

The Vancouver show had the best attendance of the tour edging out the Rivoli @ 234 people on a Tuesday night. They also had the most fun crowd with a considerably large group jumping and moshing to チーナ of all bands. The SSRIs were tremendously tight and played the perfect setlist to almost outshine the […]

Charlotte got her phone and groove back

HUGE thanks to the gentleman that came to the Velvet Underground show to return Charlotte’s lost iPhone. You made her day! Yesterday I took the bands to Niagara falls and we all rode on the Maid of the Mist and got soaked. I had all the girls wear white T-shirts… j/k. I also took Akai […]

Charlotte Lost her iPhone

Hey everyone, Charlotte, the guitarist/singer for Merpeoples lost her cell phone last night. It’s a white iPhone. Apparently people saw it on the side of the stage and were flashing it around to see if it belonged to anyone. Unfortunately for Charlotte she didn’t know it was missing at the time. If anyone knows who […]

Thank You!

Last night was f*cking bonkers! It was such a great show. All 5 bands put on legendary level performances. I only wish I could have somehow put Akai Ko-en on later since it was tough for them to go first with a 2 min line-check and no rehearsal. They were still awesome but not at […]

All doubts smashed to smithereens

Fri Oct 14, 2010: Before last night’s show, I was worried about what the crowd reaction would be like in Montreal. Mass of the Fermenting Dregs, uhnellys, susquatch and sgt set the bar damn high earning two nods for best show of 2010 in the Montreal Mirror. To recap last night’s show at Divan Orange: […]

Bands held up

I’m already in Montreal but it doesn’t look like the bands will make their original connecting flight. And poor Akai Ko-en who are only 18-19 years old might get left behind by the other bands b/c Akai Ko-en still need to get their work permits at customs/security (while the other bands already got them in […]

Popping SSRIs en masse until my Devil Eyes tonstartss%^*

I’m on my way to a house party and need to pick up some octupus on the way there. I’ll let your mind wrap around that bizarre intro for the time being. And when I get back I’ll continue the post and elaborate on the great local bands and artists we’ll be playing with in […]

No Man is an Island (pt 2)

In a nutshell, I still need a lot of help with this tour. 1. Missing crucial equipment for the Montreal shows Marshall JCM 800 amp head (2203 or 2204) Natsumen’s guitarist AxSxEx swears this is the only amp head he can use otherwise the tone ends up sounding like sh*t. Basically, if there’s no JCM […]

No Man is an Island (pt 1)

The whole point of this tour is that it’s DIY. But “Do It Yourself” doesn’t mean to literally do things by yourself without engaging the help of others. The spirit of D.I.Y. in the context of music involves musicians and fans working together as peers and cultivating their own “scene’ or musical community. It’s meant […]
