Out of My Basement: One Night Only
posted March 4, 2018 2:52 PM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Wed March 21 at 8:30 PM, Burdock
1184 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON M6H 1N2, Canada (Map & Directions)
I'm playing a rare, short, solo opening set at my brother's record release event, and then playing in his band for the main show. Doors open at 8:30, show starts 9pm. $10 advance (tickets here), $12 at the door.
Come see some shaky basement pop and possibly a live panic attack.
Burdock has great food, an on-site brewery and a separate, cozy little music space.

That's like half a block from my place... I'll try to make it. Burdock has some great beers.

I will try and come! I haven't been to a meet up in ages. (Or doing much at all on the site.)

Never been to Burdock but I have enjoyed some of their beer. I'll try to make it out, though midweek is tough.

Oh wow a chococat performance! I wish I could be there. I'll be rooting for you from afar, and (silently) singing along to your songs in spirit! Congrats on the gig and on your brother's record. :)

Thanks a bunch everyone, hope you can come. Bringing my son on stage for a few songs! and there’s a few other surprises I’m not allowed to reveal but it should be a fun night.

Depending on how the rest of this day goes I might come early for some food. Might have to leave early too, though.

Jet-lag is still killing me so I'm bailing as jet-lag + beer from experience makes for a poor combination. I'm sorry to miss it and hope to make it to the next one!

I'm not sure why, but there was a piper and highland dancers to kick things off.

Brian is now playing "Optimist"

Have always enjoyed “Sorry You Died.” Glad it was on the setlist!

I didn't find any mefites (tbh I didn't look very hard) but I enjoyed your set. It was nice to see you playing with your kid :)

You folks are awesome, I’m so happy and grateful you could come. Was great to chat with a few of you but I’m so sorry I missed a bunch, I was on another planet, honestly. Thanks so much for coming.
