Once mortal enemies, Thomas and Joe grew to gain a healthy respect for one another, and chose to express this respect through music. With the imminent demise of their previous musical venture, The Stone Throws, the two quickly fell back into their old, hateful ways. The Paper Ladies is their latest attempt at maintaining respect for one another through the use of tasty licks and slick grooves. They hope to inspire dance and love throughout all who listen to their music, and have the dream that a fan will day name their twin sons Thomas and Joe (not necessarily after them, it'd just be nice). The boys invite you to come hang, dance, and love. No Guff.
To ring in the warmer weather, we're hosting live music with up and coming punk rock bands:
- Outer Rooms (Toronto) - Progressive, artsy, post-punk rockers!
- The Tenenbaums (Ottawa) - Screamin' and beamin' punk with some steamin' hooks to boot!
- The Stilt Homes (Kingston) - Trill bill killers, slingin' indie rock wingdings!
The core members of Goldwing are Ryan Gollogly (lead singer/songwriter, guitarist), Nick “Pickins” Patterson (banjo/vocals), Matt Kirby (electric guitar/vocals), Alec Barken (bass), Tony Silvestri (keyboards/vocals), with a revolving cast of musicians joining the band on stage to add drums and vocals.
The Meringues have a whole new meaning for stage presence. They're like a freight train that's about to de-rail; an abandoned building leaning on it's last lonesome support wall.
One screw comes loose, and the whole thing could come crashing down right in front of your eyes. Their live show is a catastrophe waiting to happen and you won't be able look away.
The Swinging Doors are a 4 piece band steeped in the tradition of classic country music. Based in Kingston Ontario, The Swinging Doors pay tribute to the genres greats including: Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Hank Williams. The Swinging Doors play standards from the golden era of country music with honesty, integrity and musicianship. Always down to earth and always dance-able. A perfect fit for bars, legions, dances and private events.
Hailing from Elora/Guelph ON, The Boo Radley Project is an eight piece (and sometimes larger depending on who is in town) genre-bending collective that fuses funk, indie, jazz and literary prowess. They've been likened to everyone from Tower of Power and Mr. Bungle to Primus and Wilco. But really, they're just Boo, a ragtag group of brothers serving up a quirky, fresh approach to music.
