CRC 94 starts with some announcements and a contest. Listen to find out how to win a pair of tickets to see band number one this week, Mindil Beach Markets. I have some brand spanking new Hot Hot Heat that sounds good, really really good. Kelowna’s Treelines is coming back to Victoria, I got a song from them and the show ends with a Top 40 sounding pop anthem from a group called Santa Clara. That’s a podcast, thank you for downloading the show and please tell a friend about it.

DJ Notes

01) Mindil Beach Markets – “Drink Up”
Hot Hot Heat – “Future Breeds”
Treelines – “Canadian Airlines”
Santa Clara – “Save Me”

Did you ever watch that Aussie outback epic, Australia?  Terrible film… well not terrible but also not good.  In that movie our protagonist has to drive some cattle to Darwin.  Darwin is also home to Mindil Beach and during the dry season (in the tropics that have a dry season) Mindil Beach is home to the Mindil Beach Sunset Markets. Go wikipedia!  I guess sunset was a word too far for MBM… so that go dropped.  Good party sound.  Check out Mindil Beach Markets when they play a fundraiser for Haiti on March 26th at the Victoria Event Center.  Punch up the podcast and listen for how to win a pair of tickets.

Hot Hot Heat were dropped from their label, Warner (or at least we think they are/were).  C’est dommage because Hot Hot Heat might be on to their best music of their career.  So what Canadian band is Warner putting their marketing might behind? Hail the Villain.  BARF central.

The new HHH record is called, oddly enough, Future Breeds.  Fun Fact, the new HHH bass player is Parker Bossley of Pol Plastino championed band, Fake Shark – Real Zombie!

Treelines might feature an alumni of former Zone band of the Month, The Greatest Explorers in the world.  I think.  What I do know, they are playing Lucky Bar on March 20.  If I can make that show, I’ll NEED a Treelines t-shirt.  Like NEED.

The show ends with a band that gives me an Armchair Cynics kind of vibe.  A very polished, high octane pop rock song.  I don’t know a ton about these cats…

That’s all I got, thank you for downloading.

Go with yourself.

Forestry have recorded a new self-titled long players so they came by the CRC studio for a chit chat and to share some new music.  They also play one from one of their favourite Vancouver bands Ladyhawk and reflect on an old Zone Band of the Month called Greatest Explorers in the World.  Then we talk about who might have been the greatest explorer in the world?  Henry Hudson?  SWA?

Thank you for downloading.

DJ Notes

01) Forestry – “Love/War”
02) Forestry – “Edmonton, AB”
03) Forestry – “The Flood”
04) Greatest Explorers in the World – “Hide and Seek”
05) Ladyhawk – “I Don’t Always Know”

Peter and Blake of Forestry came by the studio on Monday night to share with me their new music.  I like these guys because not only do they make sweet sounding indie pop, they are also radio guys!  Peter jams out on Village 900am and Blake you’ll hear on CFUV.

We talk about things they have to do with trees, wood and wood related professions, some of their fave BC indie rockers, Blake’s sad panda tale about Edmonton, Peter’s love/hate relationship with Victoria, their take on who might have been the world’s greatest explorer and their upcoming shows at Lucky Bar.

My wife Coral has been very hard at work rearranging our apartment and in her organizing, she inadvertently dug up an old CD.  In Medias Res’ first ever concert.  recorded and put to CD and I got it!  So next week I’ll pop it in the CD player here at The Zone and press play and we’ll hear what comes out.

*** HEY BANDS ***

I always need new music to feature on Capital Rock City so if you’re a Victoria, Island, Vancouver or Hinterland BC band, I’d love to have some music to feature.  Heck, I’ll even take a Washington State band if you crush.

Go with yourself.
