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!
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
