Acoustic Night, Episode 3

Posted in music, posts by Tim by Tim on July 18, 2009

I’ve been more than a little lackadaisical this week, hence the abominably late nature of this post. Sorry for that!

Anyways, our third Acoustic Night was by all accounts a roaring success! Thank you to all who came out. First up was Very Nice Treehouse, composed of our very own Holly, and her fiancé Scott. They play soft folk-rock and I loved hearing their music. They are very, very talented and you can catch them today at FolkFest! (That’s not true Tim!)I would be there, but I’m working (what a choice! Miss them or miss the opening? I couldn’t decide, so I settled for inaction).

Our second musician was Tony Farese. He plays a bluesy rock, and apologized for “ruining the chill mood” (don’t tell him that he didn’t!). He played some originals and some covers towards the end of his set. His day job includes doing covers, so he took requests at the end.

And I got a new camera! I’m not saying (writing?) that to make you all jealous, but it directly impacts the experience of our readers! You see, it films in HD! And the audio is fairly decent, too. So when you see that button beside our videos now, you’ll know that we’re not just fooling around.

As we have Woodfibre, the awesome 16mm experimental film loop, opening on Friday and on exhibit until Sunday, there will be no music night on Saturday this week. You can see Woodfibre on Friday between 6 and 9, and on Saturday and Sunday between 1 and 5 (same time for both days). I’ve seen bits of it already, it looks super-cool. Stop by and check it out! I’ll be working Friday and Satuday, 2-10 – say you read the blog post and watch me light up with joy!

Videos and tidbits after the jump.
