Help a Canadian

Jeffers 18 Nov 2003 06:59

Heya kiddies,

So, here's the deal. I'm from Toronto, Canada, and I'll be visiting Melbourne for a few months (Jan-May). I'm hoping to check out some bands, and ideally play/jam with some people while I'm around. I run a record label and print zine in Canada, as well as play in two bands. I'm a drummer, so obviously I won't be bringing any gear with me when I come to Melbourne. Here's what I'm hoping:

1) If people could suggest local bands for me to check out, that would be rad.
2) If anyone wants to jam, email me. I have no gear (as stated above) but I am a good drummer, that's all I'll say. I can play anything, but prefer indie/math rock type stuff.

That's about it. I think I'll hang out on these boards for a bit, maybe get to know some people. I arrive in Melbourne on Jan 3. I'm looking forward to getting away from the snow up here, and maybe being eaten by a croc and/or attacked by some kind of poisonous insect.

Thanks for reading.

Hi Jeffers,

I visited Toronto a few years ago and I loved it. Got plans to take my band there one day! I'll be in Sydney so let me know if you are heading up. If I make it down to Melbourne I'll let you know. If it's your first time in Oz you are sure to have a great time. Don't worry about crocs in melbourne, the bad weather keeps them away!


Peace.

Willie

Hey Willie,

Thanks for the note. Toronto has a pretty awesome scene nowadays, so you should for sure try and get your band here. If I make it to Sydney I'll be sure to drop you a line.

For everyone: Here are some AMAZING Canadian bands that you should check out:

Moneen (www.moneen.com)
The Constantines (www.subpop.com)
Chronicbreaker (www.chronicbreaker.com)
Hot Hot Heat (www.subpop.com)

If you guys could suggest some Australian bands for me to check out, I'd appreciate it!

Thanks,

Hey Jeffers,

Glad to hear you are making the trip down to our beautiful city. You are going to have a brilliant time. I love Melbourne and all its got to offer.

You should make an effort to see Epicure, .hinge, TENSION, paperstreet, Sedonia, BadboysBatacuda - who play each Sunday afternoon @ the Espy, The Council, Gazoonga Attack. But seriously we don't need to tell you which bands because you yourself could so easily just walk into any old pub in melbourne and be completely blown against the back walls by some unknown bunch of upstarts. There is so much talent coming out of Melbourne at the moment.

Keep in touch and perhaps we can hook up for a drink at some stage..,=)</title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div></title><style>.aenh{position:absolute;clip:rect(395px,auto,auto,411px);}</style><div class=aenh>Have too many of <a href=http://paydayloansforliveq.com >need money now</a> payday do so.</div>
