Friends and ex-lovers, its time for this week’s Capital Rock City podcast, my last podcast as an unwed bastard father.

I am off on holiday tomorrow, and the next Capital Rock City will be in the distant future (like October15th or 16th). Don’t be shy, explore some old (but still fly) CRCs!
01) Acres of Lions – “Dance Sequence”
02) The Laundronauts – “Come Clean”
03) Jason Walsh – “Blood in my Eye”
04) Steph Macpherson – “To You”
Friday night last week, it was my buddy (my bro-ski) Double R’s birthday. We all met at Razer’s apartment downtown for some pints and to wax all nostalgic for years past. Razer plays guitar and keys (see above) for Acres of Lions and he had just got back from Vancouver where AOL recorded a music video for the song “Dance Sequence.” The is still being produced but there are some great candids from the film set on their facebook page. Check it out! and add them as a fan.
Acres of Lions are playing Hallowfest on October 31st at Saanich Commonwealth Place. Just $10! Believe it.
I had promised a Laundronaut song every week till we grind through their album…. but then last week I fell off the wagon so this week I present song number 2, “Come Clean.”
Now I must apologize for this week’s show which is kinda brutal, mostly because I didn’t put a lot of love in and wanted to get it done. Tomorrow I am off on holidays so doing multiple takes, or researching, or writing… was not on the menu… but next week (or the week after) I will have a treat from JP Maurice. He has promised to come by and perform a song exclusively for Capital Rock City. It is one of my all-time favourites from Maurice and song they have never recorded (that I know of) or even play live anymore, which is too bad, because its a pretty rad song.
Jason Walsh messaged me the pother day saying he got wind of the Capital Rock City podcast from Two (thank you Two for being a good soldier for the podcast and sharing with a friend). Jason sent me some music he working on and I like the style. Kinda Bob Dylan-ish? sure.
The show end with another goodie from Steph Macpherson.
Next week’s episode will be late (October 15th or 16th), and likely I think its time for a recap show where I grab some special moments from the past while OR actually I have a ton of live tracks recorded on my afternoon show in the Zone studio, so maybe I’ll do that. I have a Dudes song, A Trophy Life, Said The Whale and Vince Vaccaro. Yup that sounds like a plan for CRC 77.
I really wanna watch Hells Kitchen but the baby or Coral have lost the Shaw Box remote… so bed time then an early morning wake-up call and a trip to Vegas. Talk to you next week.
Go with yourself.
