Just a quick note to say thanks a billion for making the shows last weekend such a heart-melting good time! Both the St. Catherine’s show (thanks Eric and Timur) and the two Toronto shows (thanks Ed and Ace at Music Gallery) were a blast for me and the Providers. In St. Cath, we were privy to Simone Schmidt’s new project, Fiver, who (of course) ruled. At The Music Gallery, Doug Tielli's voice perched in the rafters. His mysterious songs made us laugh, cry, and laugh again. And I think we played damn good!
Mechanical Forest Sound recorded the above version of Ex-Punks, live at the first Music Gallery show, featuring “Mad” Adam Zanting on the two-piece drum kit.
This weekend we’re in Peterborough at Gordon Best Theatre on Friday, February 10th, and Kingston at The Grad Club on Saturday, Feb. 11th. Both shows are with Evening Hymns and Gavin Gardiner of The Wooden Sky. I’m going to have a beer!
