Bruce Peninsula at the Bellwoods House

November 23rd, 2009

Bruce Peninsula are playing two shows this week at the Music Gallery. Here they are at the Bellwoods House last spring before everyone moved out. I sure am glad I was there to film it! What a beaut!

Sebastien Grainger at the Tranzac

November 12th, 2009

Continuing with the anniversary celebrations, here’s another recently uncovered gem from earlier this year. I’m not sure why I never posted this the first time ’round, but it’s totally the only video like it on the internet! Sebby G himself has gone blog crazy in recent weeks, so ch-ch-check it out!

Snowblink at SappyFest 2009

November 8th, 2009

One year ago this month, I posted a video on my blog that I shot of Attack in Black playing at SappyFest 2008. I didn’t know it at the time, but that video was really the start of Morning Noon Night. It took me a few months to realize that it might be interesting to have an entire blog dedicated exclusively to live videos, but once I did there was really no turning back. I’ve uploaded almost 100 videos now, and with this month being the unofficial one-year anniversary of this blog it seems like a good time to go through my video vault and post some never-before-seen gems. The first one I’ve got for you is a song I shot this past August at SappyFest! On the last day of the festival in the middle of the afternoon we all packed into the Vogue Theater to watch Snowblink. It was about 300 degrees in there – people were literally sticking to the seats. Anyway, the band invited a bunch of their friends to come sit on stage and clap and ring bells, and once they all started playing it really didn’t matter how hot it was in there. Grab their newest album Long Live… because it’s gorgeous!!

Attack in Black at Il Motore

November 6th, 2009

Here’s a video of Attack in Black from my recent trip to Montréal. I will never get tired of seeing this band (in fact I’ll be seeing them again next month when they open for the Cons at Lee’s Palace). This song here is on their latest album, called Years (by one thousand fingertips).

Two Hours Traffic at Soundscapes

November 4th, 2009

When I found out Two Hours Traffic were coming through town last month I shot ‘em an email and asked if they would like to come play an in-store at Soundscapes. Happily, they were pretty keen on the idea, so here we are with this video. If you dig the sound, the boys will be back in town on November 21st at the Garrison. It’s an all-ages show so you can bring your little brother or sister.

Dog Day at Il Motore

November 3rd, 2009

Dog Day just put out a limited edition 12″ EP called Elder Schoolhouse. I was hoping they’d have it with them when I saw them last week in Montréal but alas, the timing didn’t quite work out and the band didn’t have them in time for the show. The album was recorded by Rick White, who pretty much has a flawless track record when it comes to these sorts of things (Julie Doiron, $100, going back to Plaskett’s first album). I’m sure I’ll have a copy in my hands soon enough, but in the meantime all I have is this video of them playing one of the more sinister tracks off last spring’s Concentration. Sorry for the muddy audio.
