Yes, we messed up Friday and ended up playing Big Buck Hunter into the wee hours of the night. However, Saturday was a whole other animal. The kind that shakes, rattles, and rolls from bar to band and into the waves of a thousand dancing bodies.
Well, we screwed that one up.
Aislinn and I (with a constantly giggling duo of hilarity) made our way down to The Ballroom for a shot at the San Sebastian show. Having only heard rumblings of them (something to the effect of being the latest Much Music darlings), it sounded like an easy step into the CMW activities — even though we are late to the proverbial races on the week.
Last weekend we did it for ourselves. We rose up, paid the extra dollar for avocado and double cheese and wallowed in self satisfaction. It was a nice break from the monotony of the weekend, but it was a little bit too self indulgent.
It’s alright to do this sort of thing sporadically, but after last weekend I think we may have gone a bit overboard. We need a kick back to reality. This week we are pulling it all the way around and sticking with the house brand, only No-Name this week. We are going to use the most generic products, the cheap stuff, DIY included!
I have a great fascination with those that expose themselves fully on the Internet. NO NOT IN THAT WAY! (yes in that way, but not in this instance). What I mean is, people that openly share everything about themselves on the internet fascinate me greatly.
Sometime last year I came across a video called “Worst Beatboxer Ever”.
Canadian Music Week has begun, friends.
While we will be stumbling across this great goddamn city for the next week, expect us to get back to our music basics in the soon time with some fresh coverage and reviews. Lord knows we’ve been a bit jumbled since launching but trust that we haven’t forgotten about the whole song portion of our title.
Otherwise, having a few technical bugs still being worked out with the new digs. So far we have deduced that our site’s back end is most likely haunted — more than likely purchased from a voodoo shaman and coded on top of an ancient indian burial ground that was uprooted by satanic pirates 100 years ago today.
Remember to follow us on twitter (@songscigarettes) and to check back on the regular as we’ve got new shit up on the daily.
Anyways, that’s the update.
See you soon, huh?
