The Worst Pop Band Ever

 

 
Perhaps because we were called "a highlight" of last year's TD Canada Trust Jazz Festival on the official tojazz website, local impresario,  Brownman, kindly, but foolishly, invited us back as part of his curated series.
Little did he know the great review was actually a result of the free absinthe and backyard mushroom samples being handed out that night. 
 
So June 22, Adrean Farrugia, Chris Gale, Drew Birston and I will be at the  May Cafe , 876 Dundas St. West, from 9pm -12am.
 
We are hoping Mayor Ford will introduce us but have a feeling he has other things to do on a Saturday night.

Rhonda, Rhonda, Rhonda!!!! This Sunday, Mar 24, one of our favorite singer/songwriters of all time, Rhonda Stakich, is doing a matinee showcase of stuff off of her forthcoming album at the Lomography Store, 536 Queen St. West.

This is a FAMILY FRIENDLY event as it starts a 3pm on a Sunday, so no excuses this time moms and dads.

Welcome
After 2 years of punching, kicking, screaming and crying, the fight many analysts have deemed 'The Most Annoying Fight of All-Time' has finally ended.  

The epic bout, held high above the earth's stratosphere concluded this weekend in a stunning turn of events when PPF House representative, Howie, who many had expected to lose, beat the heavily favored Jane into submission with a move reminiscent of a young Royce Gracie.  With his last minute heroics, Jane, as per the conditions of the fight, has been forced to relinquish her freedom and is now an eternal servant of the Shia clan. 

In all seriousness though, we want to congratulate Howie and Jane and wish them a million years of awesomeness and high fives.  Welcome to the fam Jane.  

Salutes.
