It’s finally here! Our new single and video “All Up to You.” The song was produced and recorded by Steve Foley at Audio Valley Recording Studios. The video was created by Eric St-Cyr and features cameos from local musicians in The Ven Dreddies, Monsun, The Cowards, and the Robert Farrell Band. Huge thanks to all involved and a big, big shout out to Ottawa Independent Living Resource Center for letting us use their office space. Song is available for purchase on iTunes and we’ll be giving away free download cards at our show this Saturday at Mavericks. Enjoy!
Huge thank you to Couch Assassin for joining us in our band room a few weeks ago and filming an episode of CATV Soundcheck with us! Couch Assassin is “Ottawa’s good times guide” and tells you how you can get off the couch and enjoy all of Ottawa’s fantastic events.
Check out the episode and enjoy an interview and live set!
Arms of the Girl is part of an all-female line-up celebrating the third anniversary of RockSteady Bookings on December 13 at Mavericks. The other bands include Sweet Alps, Danielle Allard, The Dead Centuries, and Tindervox. Tickets are $5 in advance, $10 at the door. The event starts at 8pm and features a DJ between sets. Will be an awesome night!
Arms is proud to be playing a fundraiser show in support of Relay for Life (Canadian Cancer Society) on Nov. 15 at The Brass Monkey. We’re the headliners, with Phil and the Phillies opening. We’ll play two sets, one of originals and one of covers, starting at 11pm. $10 tickets available in advance (email email@example.com) or at the door.
We’re filming an episode for Couch Assassin TV this week. Couch Assassin is a fantastic blog that provides event listings, event previews, and tons of information about local events. CATV is coming to our rehearsal space this week to film us jamming and then do an interview. The episode will air in early November — very excited to share it with you!
Dave really enjoyed hanging out this morning at CKCU 93.1FM with our host Tic! In case you missed the show, you can listen to the broadcast here: http://cod.ckcufm.com/programs/82/19112.html Just press the big blue button and fast forward to about the 70 minute mark.
Tune into CKCU 93.1FM’s Special Blend on Wednesday, October 15 at 8am to hear an interview with Carolyn and Dave, as well as some song spins. We’re promoting our Friday, October 17 show at Lunenburg Pub, where we’re competing in Beerfest Friday’s Battle of the Bands. Check us out on the radio and get pumped for the live show!
Arms has lots of exciting things planned for October. Gig-wise, we’re playing our favourite spot, James Street Pub, on Oct. 10. Then, we hit up the Lunenburg Pub’s Beefest Friday on Oct. 17 for a battle of the bands. For only $4, you can hear three great local acts go head-to-head — help us be champions!
This month we’ll be finishing our new single, “All Up to You” and filming a video for it. Lots of new Arms originals are in the works as well. Looking forward to hearing your feedback on the new music, and to seeing you at our gigs.
A great night of dancey, bluesy, funky rock ‘n’ roll! Fresh off the release of their latest CD, Ruby Headlights, The Powergoats headline the show with a catchy blues rock set that has R&B, reggae, ska, and alt-rock influences. We’re in the middle spot with an all-originals set — lots of newer material and some throwbacks that we haven’t played in awhile. Our friends from Paint join the line-up on loan from Toronto, where charismatic frontman Robb Johannes is running for mayor. Paint is celebrating the 5-year anniversary of their album Can You Hear Me?, filled with solid alt-rock songs. Finally, Sarah Cogan and her band, The Thrifty Kids, open the night. New to the Ottawa scene, they will show why they have definite staying power.
All of this for only $10, at Cafe Dekcuf! Doors 8pm
We know that “All Up to You” is a fan favourite, so we’re recording it as our next single. We’ve teamed up with producer Steve Foley (who produced our last single, “Chasing Stars”) at Audio Valley and started tracking this month. Looking forward to sharing the finished product!
