Windsor Live Music: Stellar Weekend

We have, easily, one of the strongest weekends I can remember in a while.

20 - Barzin (Toronto) wsg Bellewoods (Toronto) & Ten Year Drought
21 - The Superfantastics (Halifax) wsg The Silt (Toronto)

To begin with, Barzin is one of the best "quiet" musicians we have ever brought to Phog. Caleb from What Seas, What Shores was the initial person inviting him here, and it was insanely good. This time, Barzin returns under his own choices, and brings Bellewoods, who are going to wreck you in the same way Barzin can. And what can I say about Ten Year Drought? Adam Fox is back in town, and they have added Ryan Fields as a guitarist. A four-piece version of this band will kill my face off. I mean that, figuratively and literally, if that's possible.

Go to their sites and listen to their samples. This will give you all you really need to know about how slick their sounds are.

As for the Saturday, The Superfantastics' samples on myspace are amazing. I have been listening to Vantastic over and over again. They are playing with The Silt, who was recently given almost a full page in Exclaim Magazine (Wood, Wind, and Wire section). DO not miss these shows. Seriously, this is an incredibly talented set of performers playing together for the first time, I believe.

I interviewed The Silt today on on CJAM. Link below if anyone wants to hear it. Can't wait to see them tomorrow night.

Dude - Barzin was freaking great, we made him do a few encores...then Bellewood came on in gentle force - they were great as well and the boys in Ten Year were rockin', great to see the yellow wood bros doing different things - and I'd share pictures of the night with you all but Ted at the $5 Parking Lot towed my fucking car with the camera in it.
