Head to This Ain't Hollywood in Hamilton this Sunday night for a killer night of hiphop and funk music. We're sharing the stage with the incredible talents of Hamilton's Hachey the MouthPEACE, Toronto's D-Sisive, and Ottawa's Flight Distance who are celebrating the release of their new album. The evening will be glued together by DJ Close from Canadian Winter.
This is the first real hiphop gig we've been a part of unless you count enthusiastic fans who grab the mic during our live shows. Check out the links - there's some great talent on the bill! See you there.

Dave Liebman's Drum Ode is (to me) mostly remarkable for the 9 minute "Loft Dance", although the two-drumkit + caveman sax "The Call" is super cool and the 30 second intro features the artist talking about how awesome drummers are - dying to be sampled, if it hasn't already.
One of my favourites John Abercrombie is on guitar, and I'd never heard of long-time Liebman partner Richie Beirach before this but his rhodes sound is so nice and bitey and his runs are super tight.
This Wednesday we'll be tearing it up along with Magik Company at The Casbah. Come have a pint with us and check out the sounds!
