“There’s no such thing as improvisation. There’s only composition. Only you do it quickly; you’re composing on the spot.”
The projectors will crackle, Kyle Haight will be doing live painting, and some other guests TBA will be in the house to complete the experience. Join us.
Lee’s Palace! The one place I used to check out bands during my time at U of T that is still around and I still haven’t played myself. I saw many bands there back then: The Bourbon Tabernacle Choir, The Phantoms, The Shuffle Demons, The Hopping Penguins, Punjabi By Nature, Chunk O’ Funk….. That great gig with Treble Charger and The Posies on a bill – that was a good one…. And many more that I can’t quite recall now… Now if you chat up some older scenesters, you might learn that Lee’s is also the venue where a legendary Black Jello / Neon Rome / Mike Marley and the Sailors gig took place (1986?) that involved an altercation between a soundman working at Lee’s and Black Jello’s lead singer, who pulled a Roger Daltrey, but he wasn’t a seasoned ‘mic swinger’, and it hit the floor, causing the sound man to attack. Quite a skirmish. Mr. Lee (RIP) himself was even in the thick of it and got hit in the head, if you believe the stories. Supposedly there’s some video footage, but it’s not in circulation yet… (I missed that gig, but am happy to say that I caught Neon Rome at an all ages gig that went down before this one). My point: Lee’s is one of the few true TO rock venues with history that is still around. And lightsweetcrude is psyched to play there tomorrow night. Come join us!
P.S. Of course…. something this cool would have to be co-opted by Hollywood.
Who knows what the weather will be like on February 23rd? This gig poster is hopeful that we will have some snow in our lives, even just for a little bit. Does that mean I’m personally hoping for a snowstorm? Not really. Except this Winter has been a bit creepy. It would feel kind of nice for some kind of a snowfall to come at some point, and allow to brush of all that Global Warming stuff as nonsense…. But maybe not until after the weekend of Feb 18th / 19th. We’ve got to drive up to Owen Sound….
