Hi pals, here's stuff about my projects before I vacate Canada. Enjoy this listen of a never before heard E.P. of my old Toronto band with Craig Daniels and Michael Comeau. Recorded by Nyles Misczczyk and mastered by J.M. Ladd. May you find it pleasurable, it's a real trip! Listen/download/etc here: https://newhorizzzons.bandcamp.com/album/r-i-p-e-p
I host karaoke tonight (Sunday) at The Beaver (1192 Queen Street West) and plan to host loads more before I leave Toronto because I love The Beaver so much. Here's the write up:
Inside of me is avast bounty. Ha ha, avast! Which reminds me I used to drink something strong and cheap called Bounty (I only ever drank it once) and it had a delicate etching of a pirate ship rocking on the waves which is how it made me feel (how do you feel atm? and by atm I mean automated teller machine, there is one located near the wc's at The Beaver...it feels relatively smooth) let's sing sea shanties tonight! ahhh the quicker picker upper. Ok ok. Inside of me is a vast bounty emanating forth. One of the places it emanates from is my mouth and out of that mouth spews a bounty of sounds! Musical sounds! Perfect for karaoke! Maybe you have your own bounty! Celebrate that! At Bounty Karaoke this Sunday! Heads up: Monday does not exist. Hosted by Robert.
I also have upcoming performances by my character The Canadian Romantic. Next Sunday Sept 14th 8ish PM at BATHHOUSE & BODY WORKS (Oasis, 231 Mutual Street)- A Quite Investigative Monthly Queer Bathhouse Night of Drag, Performance, and Fetish where Diet Ghosts (who I love, best drag) are hosting murder mystery!!!
Listen to The Canadian Romantic's preamble to set you in a mood. Catch each Diet Ghost show for clues. Talk to your two butlers (Fisher Price & Adam Cowan) for guidance. Because murder goes well with eating food off of a naked person, come partake in the nude buffet. It's food off of a naked person. It all ties together, I think! I dunno, my childhood was weird. Ballots will be handed out at midnight. The murderer will be revealed, and if you guessed right, you win a skanky prize!
This is participatory as you'd like it to be. If you'd like to hide in a dark corner or the gloryhole in the dungeon, that's cool too! Anyway, hope you come to this murder mystery drag show sex & fetish party because no party has this many adjectives. (pic and write up by Adam Cowan)
The Canadian Romantic is also doing a short solo set at the terrific comedy night Slam Dunk at The Comedy Bar on Oct 25th at 8 PM.
