Lots of new music to start the show. Vancouver band Whitfield told me about their new album Tornado Cutie so I found a cut that has a nice Killers vibe to lead off the show. Jell, a former Zone Band of the Month, still working hard and some new music from them. A demo from Old Man Solie. The show ends with a live performance from The Racoons. Thank you for downloading the show, please please, please take four seconds to search for ‘Capital Rock City’ in the iTunes store and subscribe/rate/comment. Thank you.

CRC 84 begins with the theme song to my current fave show, “In The Night Garden.” And why not? I love that little Makka Pakka, isn’t that a pip?
Whitfield is a band I know of because of my Whale watching/Car Selling friend, Brendan. He turned me on to these guys some time ago when he popped by The Mix Tape at the Clubhouse one Thursday. Josh finally sent me an email and here we are, enjoying the opening cut to their record “Tornado Cutie.” Great album title eh? Whitfield would sound great for fans of the Killers or Bravery.
Jell is jamming out a concert on Friday at Sugar with Aegis Fang! Which reminds me, I really show fire up some Aegis Fang again the show.
A couple weeks back, we all enjoyed the LIVE CRC 81 from The Black Stilt. Well, maybe we ALL didn’t, but I had fun. While wandering the coffee shop I ran into a worker there who was also a musician and he put his demo in my hand right there! And you’re hearing it today! Be gentle with your critique, it is only a an early demo, but I love hearing these raw sounds. Very groovy party rock. Might be better suited to summer cocktails then Christmas Rums.
The show ends with one of my fave Vic rockers, The Racoons. They came by the Zone Afternoon Show to perform “Room To Operate.” But I demanded satisfaction and to hear “Tangiers.” So they did both. awwww, I love those guys.
Next week on the podcast, not really working on anything to special so I’ll troll the net for some fine rock & roll. BUT the week after, I’d LOVE to do a Christmas Capital Rock City… any bands have a Christmas song to send me? email@example.com.
Then I’ll do a “Best of” as chosen by me… in 2010, already lining up a couple shows. Aidan Knight will come, and perform and play songs from his favourite Vic rockers (and some Black Tie Social!) and then I am trying to get Forestry in here too for a CD release show. their record is out in January 2010.
That’s all I got. Go with yourself.
