You know what is crazy? I just got off a micro tour and I don’t have a single photo to share. This is what happens when you are completely wrapped up in the shows and have no pizzarazzi to speak of. I promise the upcoming PopMontreal showcase this Saturday will be photographed, videographed – even cellographed! (?) And I will post the images and video right here on this blog. Saturday’s show will be stellar as I’ll be performing with Lederhosen Lucil veterans Shane Watt (bass, vox) and Spencer Warren (drums) + special surprise guests. There will be costumes, lights, cameras, and definitely ACTION! Oh, and music of course…
It’s strange to think that a decade ago my alter ego Lederhosen Lucil performed at the first ever PopMontreal festival at the now defunct “Le Swimming” club. I still sometimes wonder where the entire roll of brand new black & silver Lederhosen Lucil stickers went (someone stole em’ from the curb as we were loading into a cab after the show!). It has since grown to epic proportions inspired, no doubt, by Austin’s SXSW as Pop now boasts Artpop, Filmpop, Symposiumpop, free BBQs and so much more. You can read about some of the highlights here: Hour Community & visit the official website here: POP MONTREAL.
