Shows! Bruce Penninsula, Entire Cities, Reuben deGroot & Share – tommorow (with live Entire Cities tracks)
It is going to be a huge night over at the Mansion tomorrow, October 15th, and, if you know what’s good for you, you will be there to stomp, shout, sway, and have an all ’round good time. Two of my very favourite live acts – Bruce Peninsula and b(oot)log favs Entire Cities – will be sandwiched between Share (whom I’m not really familiar with but I like what I hear – check ’em out for yourself – here’s “Maybe Always” featuring the ever-lovely Jenn Grant and you can hear more here) and Kingston gentleman Reuben DeGroot. It is gonna be a helluva night of live music.
15 Oct – The Mansion, Kingston
17 Oct – Neat Cafe, Burnstown
18 Oct – Bar Tapageur, Sherbrooke
19 Oct – house show, Saint John
Here are a few tracks from Entire Cities from the last time they shared a stage in Kingston – at the Apple Crisp Music Fest (Bruce Peninsula’s set can be found here). Enjoy.

A quick post to share with you a couple of songs from this big weekend of music at the Grad Club in Kingston. On Friday night Cuff the Duke is playing and then on Saturday Amy Millan is taking over the smallest but best stage around.
As is expected, both shows are sold out but there will be a few tickets available at the door. So if you want to go to one or both (you do, trust me) get there early so you aren’t stuck out in the cold, standing in the bushes with your face pressed up against the glass.
Both Amy Millan and Cuff the Duke have new albums out (“Masters of the Burial” and “Way Down Here“, respectively). I have only heard snippets of them but I must say I likes what I hears – and I am a big fan of both their previous work. You should pick the records up for yourself – get Millan’s at Arts&Crafts and Cuff the Duke’s from the band directly.
And, here are a few live tracks because I know that’s what you are really looking for.
* Jenny Whiteley & Amy Millan, Baby I, (recorded at the Sydenham St. United Church, 25 November 2008)
* Cuff the Duke, Ballad Of A Lonely Construction Worker, (recorded at the Grad Club, 21 November 2007)
Enjoy and get yrself out there for some great music this weekend.
