Gobble Gobble (San Francisco/Edmonton) Saturday, September 25th at Phog

We don't know anything like this yet.
If you want to dance...Phog is actually the best building in downtown for it this Saturday...for real.
This band is new to our senses, and is only recently on our radar.

To put it plainly, this band has more fans than the Phog Lounge Group on Facebook. Lots of people know just how incredible this is...

I have been stopped at least a dozen times by hardcore music fans in Windsor asking me if this is actually true or not, Gobble Gobble playing Phog...and when I look surprised at their excitement, they go on to explain that this band is simply unlike anything else they've ever seen.

The synth/pop/dance band is going to be a gift to anyone smart enough to come out. They have been loved by NME, Pitchfork, and Stereogum.
Here's the proof:

Allie Hughes...would you see the show?

This wonderful performer, Allie Hughes, might come to Phog soon. Would you come and see her perform? Her videos are reason enough...
According to Musebox, "She's opened for Mother Mother, Chromeo, and the Do.  She also opened for Born Ruffians on their hometown CD release party earlier this summer at The Horseshoe."

Friday, September 24th - An Evening of Reading and Amazing Live Music presented by Biblioasis

On Friday, September 24th we'll be kicking off our Fall publishing season with a four author launch at the Phog Lounge.  Windsor born and raised Alexander MacLeod will be launching his long-anticipated first collection of short stories.  Light Lifting offers a suite of darkly unflinching urban elegies, all of them set in the streets of our fair town.  London's A.J. Somerset will be launching his Metcalf-Rooke winning novel Combat Camera, about a burned-out Pulitzer-prize winning photographer who washes up in Toronto and takes a job with a low-budget pornographic impresario, then hatches a plan which just might save his career, an actress he gets involved with and, hopefully, himself.  Marius Kociejowksi will be here from England to launch his Pigeon Wars of Damascus, the follow up to his best-selling Street Philosopher and the Holy Fool (destined to become a classic, Adam Thorpe, TLS), Kociejowski returns to post 9-11 Damascus to discover an Islamic society in search for its true self.  And poet Norm Sibum will read from his two latest collections, The QWF nominated Pangborn Defence, and Smoke and Lilacs (Carcanet, distributed by Biblioasis.)

To round out the night, Kenneth, Marion and Lewis MacLeod will be providing musical entertainment into the late hours in support of Lewis's just released album For Sale As Is.  It promises to be a great night of books and music. 

Hope to see you out there.

Phog Phest 2 - A Preview

Just a friendly reminder, as we are less than a week away from Phog Phest 2...

Tickets are $10.
They're being sold by Joe Rabie (Red Rows), David Dubois (Locusts Have No King - often found at Taloola Cafe :)), Jamie Greer (The Magic Hall of Mirrors - often found at The Manchester), and Phog Lounge itself.

We're looking at an amazing gathering of local music creators, supporters, and awesome weather.

The forecast is already calling for sunny skies with a high of 30 and a low of 20! It's the ideal day to be at a music festival!

We'd be honoured if you found us, and our large outdoor festival (in Phog's parking lot) to celebrate the local music scene on this Saturday, August 14th.

CJAM 99.1FM will be live-streaming a portion of the evening on the radio, which is thrilling!


Phog Phest 2 music schedule:
1pm-1:40 - Red Rows
2pm-2:40 - Lindy
3pm-3:40 - James O-L and The Villains
4pm-4:40 - Locusts Have No King
5pm-5:40 - Bulletproof Tiger
6pm-6:40 - The Mark Inside
7pm-7:40 - Grand Analog
8pm-8:40 - Magic Hall of Mirrors
9pm-10:00 - Young Rival

No alcohol consumption allowed after 11pm.
This will be a great opportunity to head out to the other music venues in Windsor that make this scene as vibrant as it is. Their shows should just be getting underway around that time. A perfect night of music for all venues in the core.

Local product vendors include:
Big Fish Small Pond
Jason Deary
Printhouse / Denial
Silver Heart Boutique
Slice of Style
SPOTVIN Creative
Windsor Eats
