The Bicycles, The Artel, Kingston, 26 January 2007

Posted in bootleg, mp3 at 4:32 pm by rgsc

Ok. I’m running really short of time so this post is gonna be short and sweet – just like songs produced by today’s featured artist the Bicycles. This Toronto six-piece make insanely catchy, ultra-concentrated, little nuggets of pop goodness. Their sixties bubblegum sound is laden with horns, harmonies and tambourines and it is guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a bounce in your step.

The Bicycles are opening for the Ride Theory TONIGHT at the Grad Club (sorry I didn’t give you more of a heads up on this one and it should be a great time. The recording below was from their visit to The Artel a couple of months ago. Just so you know, the vocals were pretty low in the mix so you can’t always hear them but the band sounds great throughout. Hope you dig it.

    How did I not know about your site until today? Anyways, love the site, keep up the excellent work. I think my work is going to notice the large spike in bandwidth from my machine as I grabbed some of my favourite artists you have posted.

    Hey Craig – glad you found me, even if it was only just now. Hope you don’t get fired for the extra bandwidth usage. that would make me sad. although i think i would have to change my tag line if you did. “B(oot)log: so awesome it will get you fired.” That is the power of the b(oot)log.

  3. […] City Lovers opened for The Bicycles in January at The Artel. As I described with the headliners, the mix wasn’t ideal and some of the strength in Kat Burn’s […]
