This Saturday (October 1st) we'll be opening for Blood Ceremony (about to start a European tour) at Double Double Land, deep in the heart of Kensington Market. The night is Nuit George, a benefit for George Dim's medical treatment.
From the event's Facebook page -
This event is a fundraiser for our good friend George Dim. We are raising money to assist him with the costs of receiving CCSVI treatment.
You may know George from buying records from him at his old record store LOST AND FOUND RECORDS. He is known by his friends as a kind, loving man who makes everyone around him laugh.
George has been diagnosed with MS and has hopes of receiving the CCSVI treatment. We have put this show together to raise funds for him to assist in the procedure and travelling costs.
ALL PROCEEDS (DOOR and ALCOHOL) WILL GO TOWARDS THE CAUSE!
PLEASE COME AND SUPPORT A GOOD CAUSE!
$10 at the door
Bands will be on early for all you Nuit Blanchers out there.
In the meantime, here's a taste of the great Blood Ceremony doing what they do best, earlier this year --
Review of the show!

Earlier this year on Exclaim TV's Garageland, I spoke about how dumb I thought MySpace was. That view hasn't changed. Fortunately, as you may already know, another site for disseminating original music has emerged and proved its worth in quite a short time - and that site is Bandcamp.
I like all the freedom you're given as to your bands' presentation there, the relative control, clarity, and the total absence of advertising or other bands' logos or tour dates. Last night, I created a page for No No Zero and uploaded our Rough Stuff album (available on LP or CD through Signed By Force) so folks can stream and give it a listen if they haven't heard it before.
Our new record will presumably be there too once it's 100% finished. Stay tuned!
