🎵I’ve got the Dead Speaker Cabinet Bluuuueeees🎵. “I Hate Men” is up near 14,000 listens on Spotify and we STILL have no roadies to wheel this thing to the repair shop for us. What even the heck

our hearts are with survivors today and every day - those who speak out, those who need to stay silent, and those anywhere in between. we believe you.

my fellow dudes: can you imagine being grilled in front of the entire world like this? anyway, don't worry about it. you never will be.

66% of our band doesn’t even drink beer but we are already planning our trip to the 11th edition of Beau's All Natural Brewing Co. Oktoberfest in 2019. Thanks to all our buds old and new for the unforgettable weekend. Now please join us in praying that Ship of Fools got drunk enough to sleep soundly in their van since the tornado ate their darn tent. 🙏

that. was. a. day. DEEP BREATH: a drive through downtown montreal in the pouring rain. tornado warnings during sound check on an outdoor stage in rural ontario. actual tornadoes as soon as we start our set. we get shut down by the cops. there’s a three-hour wait in a large barn with a few hundred fellow weather refugees while dr. praetorius from “jesus christ vampire hunter” (look it up) does incredible/shirtless 80s karaoke in the back and i try to act casual standing next to jonathan torrens. loud, ceaseless, pummeling rain. cancelled sets. cancelled activities. wet, abandoned equipment. mud. sooo much mud. then, of course, finally: the moon. stars. a clearing breeze. the weather refugees emerge. The Flatliners rip a half hour set on the black forest stage, technically a consolation prize but more like an opening ceremony. an after party at the windsor tavern: we get to finish the set we’d started eight hours prior. the singalong is so loud i don’t hafta sing the last chorus of “i hate men.” Pseudo plays and they’re just the best. vankleek hill is the best. Beau's All Natural Brewing Co. is the best. kevin james (the brewer/event organizer not the mall cop) is the actual for real best. sleeping is also the best. g’night finally and see y’all back at the grounds tomorrow. we’ll be the dorks with plastic bags tied around our shoes. ❤️ ok

Welp. We made it through twenty seconds of the first song before the tornados cut us off and cancelled Oktoberfest for the night. But let’s look at the bright side: WE WERE OBJECTIVELY THE BEST BAND AT OKTOBERFEST TODAY! And please keep your snarky “also the worst” comments to yourself cuz I’m super depressed right now.

This Friday! Lookit this cool poster that someone made. Shouldn’t you compliment them on it? I don’t even know who did it but I bet he’s watching and hoping you’ll say something nice, like, “way to go, buddy” or “decent poster, pal,” or “hey Chris, you are the singer and social media director of Talk Show Host and I think you’re doing a bang-up job,” or maybe something along those lines I dunno it doesn’t have to be anything specific

OH RIGHT! THE SHOW! RSVP --> Girlongirl, Bad Buzz, Talk Show Host, Loi Do at The Monarch

HOLY MOLY! We’re super excited to be part of the Black Forest lineup at this year’s Beau's Oktoberfest in September! It’s legit been a goal of ours for the past few years, so big thanks to our friends at the brewery and in Audio Visceral for the support.

And, like, we’re playing the same festival as Sloan. WHAT

An excellent cover story in this week's NOW Magazine - featuring the astounding Viktoria Belle and her Dandelion Initiative - about safety in our scene here in Toronto.

Very disappointed in that three-strong list of venues who have completed the anti-sexual-violence training offered by Dandelion. Not a single place we've played here has finished it.

I forgot to take any photos of us recording two new songs at The Lincoln County Social Club on Sunday so instead here is Band Cat Daisy having a word or two with the neighbour’s cat, who likes to hang on our doorstep. His name is Simon and he is super chill.

Our social media intern just told me that our 100th IG post should be our best yet. I think you’ll all agree that this single image combines the two best things of all time: 1) cats attempting to devour life-sustaining particles of light and 2) framed photos of Rivers Cuomo. Anyway, listen to Talk Show Host, y’all. New songs soon.

"The best damn 13 minutes I've had this week."

Big thanks to Jen over at New Noise Magazine for this super flattering review!

A year ago today we'd just finished recording the thing. Time for a full-length?

This giant gaping hole represents more than a few missing teeth. It was Honest Ed’s, yeah, but back there was also the spot where we played our first show three years ago.

You pull the teeth, you change the smile. I love you, Toronto, but you need to start flossing better.
