HALLO! It's Tuesday. Fab said I should do a Band Appreciation post on Tuesdays, because the internet could obviously use some more Opinions™ on it.

Sabrina is Not in This Chat is a band from my favourite city in the world, Los Angeles, and they sound like they'd have landed perfectly on a dream bill sandwiched between Minutemen & Fugazi. They released their debut full-length, "Not Recommended for Sensitive Skin," back in January and it's one of those records that'll make wannabe musicians like us super jealous over how friggin' weird and original it is. Liquid tempos, nightmarish, angular riffs and that rhythm section, my gawd. I snapped it up on bandcamp about three tracks in.

Hey Fender the comments on your sponsored FB posts are proof positive that all dude guitarists should be summarily banned from the internet. Embarrassing.

A year ago today we released the video (directed by the crazy talented Judith Lapara) for the closest thing we've got to a hit. Thanks to everyone who's streamed it so far - at about 85,000 plays across all yer darn platforms, this thing should technically be certified platinum in Canada*!

It was, of course, a big hit with the youtube bros. Favourite comment: "The music is good but the lyrics are cancer." Thanks, buddy!

*if they completely changed the rules and made several exceptions in our favour.

tfw when you spend $220 to get your favourite blackstar guitar cabinet fixed and you lug it all the way back to the jam space for practice and you play it for about twelve seconds and then your marshall amp head dies and you have to lug IT to the repair shop now and then your bass player buys you ice cream to cheer you up and it totally works

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.
