Poland Yacht Club, etc.


I went to Shape Note Singing at Bloor Street United on Wednesday and recorded us singing #86 Poland from the Sacred Harp Songbook. Always the 3rd Wednesday of the month from 7:30 to 9:30.

I’m surprised Shape Note Singing hasn’t caught on with anyone else from Choir!Choir!Choir! because personally I enjoy the contrast of sounds and singing techniques between the 2 different choirs.

At Shape Note approximately 20 of us sight-read 20 to 30 songs that are hundreds of years old throughout the evening, at C!C!C! 100 of us learn 2 songs each week from the past 40 years. Last week we sang a couple of Wilco songs; I’m Always In Love and Jesus, etc.

Last night I was hired to do sound for TBWA Toronto’s 25th Anniversary party! There were many DJ’s! Lots of great food! Drinks from Junction Brewery and Yellow Tail Wine! Plus a live performance by No Warning Yacht Club!!

My secret weapon at EVERY FUCKING PARTY these days is fog machines and lasers! Is your party getting dull? Pull out the fog machine and all of a sudden people start dancing themselves into a frenzy. I’m not joking or exaggerating. Just watch out for sensitive smoke alarms and sprinkler systems.
