Lederhosen Lucil Returns!

One of my favorite artists of all time, Temple Bates, is going to be launching her new book “Hermoddities” this coming Thursday, June 30th in Montreal at the Drawn & Quarterly Bookstore on Bernard.

She has long been a fan of my alter ego “Lederhosen Lucil” and has invited LL to perform the night of her launch. YES! Prime opportunity to iron one of the infamous hosen ensembles featured in “The Joy of Hosen” (my first publication – an eye-candy filled book of Lucil – the costumes, artwork, performances, merchandise, fan mail and so much more!.

Lederhosen Lucil hits the stage at 19h (feel free to post requests for songs on the facebook event site) and Temple’s animation/artist talk will follow.

FREE (but bring your dubloons as you may want to pick up “Hermoddities,” “The Joy of Hosen” or a vintage LL CD!)

Thursday, June 30th – 19h sharp – Drawn & Quarterly – 211 Bernard W. – Lederhosen Lucil & Temple Bates

Krista’s amazing line-up of Junebug Shows!

“Between Atoms”  was launched into the ether online and at special live performances this past month. We had an amazing micro tour with Ottawa rap legend Jesse Dangerously and now Krista is gearing up for a busy June of live shows, ukulele workshops and other tomfoolery!

Merci beaucoup to all those who came out during the rainstormy weather to see us perform in Montreal, Ottawa, Kingston and Toronto. The raffle winners got a real treat at the shows as the prizes were original music and artwork by the performing artists including micro maps by semi-fictional mapmaker Shane Watt and art/music compilation by Stefanos Rokos. (*see photos below!)

Now I’m busy getting ready for June! For dates, times and ticket prices check out the show link that highlights:

  • The return of Krista’s popular “Songwriting Machine Workshop” at KidsPop
  • Shows Krista is playing with the wunderbar ukulele’ist MEB
  • A brilliant benefit for the “Girls Action Foundation” at the Rialto Theatre (tickets are $25 and going fast!)
  • The 4th installation of the “Ukulele Bizarro” cabaret spearheaded this year by the ultra active indie content group Indyish and held at the Fringe Festival!

While studying the art of offset and screen-printing as well as graphic design, Krista engineered, mixed and produced her fifth album to date “Between Atoms.” This record was a true labour of love and will be released online via the “hypo records” label May 2011 (you can sneak a listen now online by clicking on the album cover image on the left!).
