Sled Island Saturday

Busy day!

Market Collective's one year anniversary was big, big, big! Moving from Carpenter's Union Hall to the Ant Hill building turned out to be a really good decision. The road front windows and music provided by CJSW lured people in who otherwise may not have known what the Market Collective was! Congrats Angel and Angela!

Myke Atkinson of Beneath These Idle Tides put together a beautiful blend of 8 cd's on random and repeat with a film of various visuals playing simultaneously. The room was equipped with bean bag chairs, cushions and a futon. Absolutely fantastic.

Markus Michel.

Onto the Warehouse!

Women. King Khan gave a humorous and, probably, surprising intro. He should really start a heavy metal side project. Women are total dream boats...the band that is...admittedly...our gender can be somewhat of a nightmare sometime. 4 out of 5 for Women (the band!)
Colin Newman. Githead. Awesome. 5 out of 5.

Distillery briefly for The Bronx

At times throughout the weekend I was wondering "where is everybody?" and it turns out...they were all at the Distillery! 4 out of 5 for The Bronx.

And finally to Vern's for the one show I was absolutely not going to miss...

As soon as I saw Tricky Woo was playing on Saturday at Vern's I knew it was the place to be. Vern's has a small stage and is in general a pretty small place so I was really looking forward to seeing Tricky Woo pack the place to the brim. And that they did!! They blew a fuse twice. They played a killer encore, after fixing a guitar string. They were a highlight. No doubt. 5 OUT OF 5!
