With various shows happening on November 25, 2011, I decided to go to Babylon Nightclub to support two Ottawa acts. The show was a celebration and a thank you to the fans of Sound of Lions, who recently won Best New Act and Best Album from the Ottawa Xpress Readers Poll 2011.
Three years and it’s still going strong for Ottawa’s Raw Sugar Cafe. So with that, there was a big celebration and blog launch filled with people, food, drinks, and of course, live music, on November 11, 2011 (aka 11/11/11). Included in the live music was Ottawa’s Male Nurse with a DJ set for those wanting to dance …

Listening to BBC Radio 1’s Official Chart Update today. I never been a fan of Rizzle Kicks except for the guest appearance on the song with Olly Mur’s Heart Skips a Beat. The single will debut in the Top 10 UK Singles Chart this week. I actually like this song. Has that cool funky hip-hop …

Listened to most of the hotly anticipated album “Watch The Throne” by Jay-Z and Kanye West. Beside Otis which is the leading single and can’t stop listening to. The first track stood out big time on the album. It’s dark and brooding with the drumming (probably synthesizer drums). Have a listen to No Church In The Wild.
Another act that I saw at House Of Paint was Ottawa Philly Moves. This is the second time in less than two months seeing this band live. Last time was at Bluesfest on the last day before the all things went crazy. Anyways they put on a good set.
