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.
