Hurricanes & Southern Souls

IRENE! Even though we were greatly disappointed not to have been able to road trip down to Brooklyn to play The West Café last weekend for the Conversation With The Cosmos benefit concert, we were lucky enough to soak up the sunshine in Montreal Friday and ended up doing an impromptu Tour de l’Isle – something I’ve been meaning to do ever since I got a proper bike fit for hills, dales, bridges and everything in between. 6 hours of cycling – criss-crossing from Montreal to Laval and back…from Pointe Claire village to Lachine to Greenspot for the poutine finale. It was WUNDERBAR! Biking is one of my favorite things in the world! If you’re in Montreal this weekend (Sep 1-3rd) check out the Bicycle Film Festival.

The Conversation With the Cosmos show will be rescheduled for this fall and will either take place in NYC or Montreal – details to come!

Last week Mitch Fillion from Southern Souls came through town and we met up with him to shoot a few songs at the sweet little vegetarian café “Lumiere de Mile End.” The videos will be up on September 8th…

In the backyard of Le Lumiere du Mile End!

Southern Souls Shoot August 2011

Brooklyn Show August 27th!

Krista will be performing in Brooklyn on Saturday, August 27th at West Café. You’ll have the unique opportunity to see Krista & Shane perform songs from her latest release “Between Atoms” as well as see clips from upcoming documentary “Conversation With The Cosmos” by Films Kookaburra. Visit the facebook event HERE.

Krista has also recently participated in the “Les Enfants de La Bolduc” project (August-Sep 2011). She learned some of the famous Gaspesienne singer Mary Travers’ (aka “La Bolduc”) songs including “Les Filles de Campagne” which she recorded with Montreal excentrics “Les Abdigradationnistes” and which will appear on a compilation in September 2011. Check out the preview for the web-documentary part of the project here:

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
