Heyyy we just finished filming and recording for the next edition of the String Theory concerts (stringtheoryconcerts.tumblr.com).
Man, was it hot in that little studio! Lotsa lights and warm bodies in a small place have a tendency to do that. Great experience, though. A few minor mishaps, but overall it was a pretty good set. Some of our songs were probably the best we’ve ever played ‘em! And ain’t you lucky. You’ll get to watch and listen to them. Some editing has to take place before we’re able to share the final product, so it may be a while. We’re shaking with excitement to see it all done and ready, so we know how you must feel, but you’ve gotta be patient! Soon enough, friends.
In the mean time, check out some of the previous artists in the String Theory series! These people do good work :)
Have a little listen to the new album from our friend, The Vaudevillian. If you listen closely you can even hear us Spokes on a few tracks! Good Golly we’ve got a great community.
Our show at The Little Bean on Friday was amazing! What a supportive audience! We’ve got the greatest friends.
Here’s a little sample of the night’s work. Unfortunately we weren’t able to capture video of the whole set, but here you can see a little preview of the kind of stuff we’re working on right now. We’ve been playing around with some instrumental jams. This bad boy features a new instrument for the Spokes - a flute!
Apologies for the video quality. It’s the best that can be expected in a dark venue with just your average digital camera. It’s one of the first videos we’ve seen of us playing, so we’re still pretty stoked about it.
If you make it out to one of our shows, feel free to bring out your camera and take photos and/or video. We love having our art documented so we can watch ourselves improve and grow as artists.
Thanks for your support! We love you!
If you’re looking for a fun activity for the upcoming Friday the 13th, look no further! It’s the debut show for our friends, Eris, and we hope to have at least one new Spokes original to bring out for you.
Come on out to the Little Bean Coffee Bar beside Ziggy’s Cycle at the corner of King and Victoria. S’gonna be a blast!
Well that was a fun little show! Thanks to all the friends who came out!
We’re really focusing on writing some new original material for your listening pleasure at the next show. (Or maybe the show after that - Hey! These things take time!)
We’re having a blast doing some fun covers as we learn new techniques on our new instruments, but we want to start getting a little more creative and developing a voice of our own. Stay tuned!
Come see us tonight at Imbibe! It’ll be a hootin’ and hollerin’ good time!
Tomorrow is the Shameless Magazine Yard Sale Fundraiser! Toronto, come see us play our ditties and support Shameless Mag!
Back to Kitchener tomorrow evening to play a show with Brendan Stephens at the Edelweiss Tavern. Big day!
Playing a few songs with our friends Onion Honey at a friend’s family event in Port Dover a few weeks ago :)
Come hang out with us on July 20th in Toronto for the Shameless Magazine yard sale fundraiser! We’ll have some spiffy new tunes for you :)
