The summer has already started.
It means that house/basement shows have begun.
Went to a fun houseshow on June 4, 2011.
Playing at there were:
I didn’t get to see Holy Cobras because it got too crazy crowded and running late.
I was more into seeing Slim Twig and U.S. Girls both hailing from Toronto.
The first band to play was Ottawa’s Knifemare.
Surprised to see the band is expanding and becoming a full band.
Put on a wild and crazy set.
Second was Ottawa’s Stale Cum.
I didn’t catch must of it because it got crazy crowded.
I was mostly outside chatting with friends.
But I took some photos of their wild set.
Third was U.S. Girls.
It was a pretty unique set with just her with bunch of equipment and some tape players.
I really enjoyed that set that was all experimental pop.
Really loved her rendition of Brandy and Monica’s The Boy Is Mine.
Listen to If These Walls Could Talk. (via)
Fourth was Slim Twig.
He had a full band playing in that small basement.
It was a great set and really ejoyed it.
Listen to Priscilla. (via)
Before Slim Twig’s set, Emily McQuarrie‘s interview with Slim Twig himself.
Have a listen to the interview.
Here are the rest of the photos.
