Filming “Beaver Pond Forest”

On Saturday, we filmed the music video for our song “Beaver Pond Forest” in the South March Highlands area itself.  There was something special about using the forest as our green room, dressing room, lunch room, and film set all at once. Thanks to the wonderful hard work of filmmaker Toni Van Eeden and all of the cast who helped us out, we had a great time…as well as one of the most epic food fights this forest probably ever seen.

Stay tuned for the release of the music video!

one guitar string, two tires, and a fire

aren’t our shows always filled with exciting drama? at our last show at Zaphod’s, there was some excitement when cops ran past the stage to apprehend a guy going into the strip club upstairs with a gun.  this time we had to fight our way through fire to get to our show. okay, maybe not literally, but there was a huge brushfire in the forest near the house and the roads to my neighbourhood were blocked off, making it a bit more of a challenge than usual to get to the show at Pressed.

but we did it! and it was a wonderful night, of gourmet sammies, pink balloons, functioning drum machines, insightful spoken word, short shorts, and even a few covers.  we rocked out so hard, we broke a guitar string and two car tires.

special thanks to Jenna Tenn-Yuk and Carlo for putting on such a great performance and helping us organize this show. And of course, a big thank you to Jeff and the people at Pressed for providing such a lovely venue.

You can check out some of the photos from the night here: http://photogmusic.com/?p=22315, thanks to Ottawa music photographer
