It was a fun interesting Thursday.
Went to the Hyatt Regency Hotel and picked up my media pass which I was excited.
This is when the actual fun began
Picked up a goodie bag, inside it was mostly books, CDs and stuff but I love the bag.
I went to the conference area and wandered to see what is there.
I did try the Tenori. Weird instrument gadget.
Finally got to Rah Rah play live in the Conference room.
Last time was a month ago and I only caught two songs.
They were amazing live, thought it was funny the first song they sang was F**k Nafta.
This is a band you have to see live.
At 5pm I went to Sunrise Records for a In-Store Session.
I saw Dinosaur Bones play at the store.
It was a fun experience to see a band play in a music store.
I decided to check up at Dundas Square and saw Spiral Beach play there.
I didn’t stay for the whole show but it was nice to see that alot of people were there to check their music and the fans.
Then I went to the Arts & Crafts Showcase Night 2.
I am kind of bummed out that I missed out the first night since the special guest was Broken Social Scene with Feist.
But I went and saw Zeus, Timber Timbre, Still Life Still and The Most Serene Republic.
I didn’t stay to see the Stills, who were the special guest for night 2.
Totally a fun night.
Zeus was great and didn’t expect them to be that great.
Timber Timbre was alright, maybe because they had saxophone player and another person using the slide guitar. I wish it was one of the members of Ohbijou who does the violin.
Still Life Still was amazing, totally rocked everyone who was in attendance.
The Most Serene Republic was amazing and sang mostly new tracks from the new album “…And The Ever Expanding Universe”.
Totally energetic and fun.
I had a fun night at the Courthouse for the Arts & Crafts showcase.
I would have went to another venue but I am so tired and need some rest.
Friday is going to be another crazy one.
