Solid hangs at BreakOut West!
It’s been a spell since we’ve had a good long hang in Cow-town, but thanks to BreakOut West, we were able to spend 3 magical days in a blur, roaming the streets downtown, being naughty in hotels, seeing some excellent bands in action and literally swimming in Big Rock Pilsner. And not at all to worry about us boys from Victoria… we survived with only a few scars… some physical, but mostly emotional… it hurts so good! We spent a night in Edmonton playing a gig at Filthy McNasty’s the night before the festivities began… of course, we needed to warm up to this onslaught of festival behaviour and build up our tolerance a little bit… and make sure our set was spot on for the oncoming storm of performances >> read more

The Fall Tour Begins!
Well, here we are again, folks! It’s been a good year; a busy start leading us into a spectacular summer of festivals and good people across the country, and now in the autumn season in the year of 2013, it’s time for us to once again put all of our trust into the van we love so much, the van that has given everything and taken nothing, a van that forgives us for all of our cursing, urinating in bottles and spilling coffee (along with other liquids, secretions and gross unmentionables) on the upholstery, and go on tour. We will be re-visiting some old haunts and will be performing twice, as well as having a few good beverages with a few good friends, in Calgary for BreakOut West! We’ve had >> read more

Shake The Lake 2013!
Hey guys and gals! Just wanted to let you all know that we are alive and well and back home in Victoria after our long drive and excellent excursion to Sylvan Lake AB for Shake The Lake 2013! We spent a good 3 days of driving in old Van Halen this weekend, truly inspired and surprised by her ability to endure, and we had the distinct privilege of headlining Saturday night’s events at Shake The Lake! Below you will find a video entailing the highlights of the second day at this wonderful, small community festival featuring a good, if not great, helping of amazing local and local-ish talent and the various other activities held at this event… what a day! Check it out! We had an incredible time in Sylvan >> read more
