THE WEEKEND PRE-GROG REVIEW - POP LEON @ L'Agitée 11 March

I have been extremely slack lately and have not gone out to see a band except for my own gig on the 12th!
PopLeon were one of the headliners for the night and I was opening the show.

Pop Leon are an extremely diverse bunch  of musicians from the Apple Laptop to the Trombone. They have a lot to offer musically and on Monday night at Agitee they killed it like it was the last show they would ever play! A brilliant display of energy by an amazing talented bunch. Tommy the singer announced that it would be 'Chuck's' last night (the drummer). The best indicator of their charisma was the fact nearly the entire bar were dancing up the front like it was their last night alive! Including one hilarious bearded gentleman performing some sort of a  mixture of a River Dance/Irish Jig/Head banging .

Pop Leon are a live favourite for me and I really hope they find a drummer soon so that they can get back to doing what they do best!

ALL ROUND NICE GUY DAVE JOINS THE CRU

I have found a pianist/madolin-ist/guitarist/bassist/singer/drummer/strummer and all round nice guy to play some shows with! His name; Dave. So now we have some sort of a 3 person live cru, we're like De La Soul except nowhere near as bad ass.

TWO MAN WOLF PACK

It is exactly what the name suggests. 

When two lone wolves unite there sometimes can be a deadly mixture of creative wolf juice that will spill into the universe and create an EP and tour of Quebec.

Well this is the working title for a collaboration I will be doing in the next few months. It's gonna be pretty much a do whatever the fuck enters our head project. I might even do a cover of this! :
