Before we get into the meat of this week’s blog, some news on the gig front: Félix and the Cats have been asked to play a feature set at the Linsmore Tavern on October 25, 2016, at a very palatable 9:00. This is part of their Indie Night, sponsored by Steam Whistle and Amsterdam breweries. Great for those who have an early start the next morning, but we encourage you to stick around for the headline act at 10:00. We are still waiting for details as to who else is with us (typically 3 acts starting at 8:00). More details as we get them.
And speaking of the Linsmore, I was there just recently to check out the aforementioned New Music Night, and heard the delightful Lucy Of-Fire open the evening. Lucy ably plays and sings with confidence and puts across a lot of energy. Turns out there is a connection with F&tC as we share a drummer, Greg Anzelc. We are keeping our fingers crossed that she will open for our show on the 25th!
I have a snippet below of her playing a nicely inspired cover of Heart’s Alone. Her originals are similarly powerful, and show insight, maturity, and great lyrical craft. Someone to watch out for sure.
And speaking of Lucy, a proud plug to eldest daughter, also a Lucy, for launching her website featuring original handcrafted ceramics. Our Lucy has a delightfully original approach and produces unusual and fun pieces that would look just marvellous on a shelf or mantelpiece in your home. So be a patron of the arts, and check out her site at http://www.lucypelletier.ca. Online shopping available.
Until next week, be well!
