Well that was something! We took a plunge in September and hit the road with our friends in Vinyl Hero, and man oh man what a road trip it was! We kicked things off in Ottawa on September 2 at Cafe Dekcuf where we were joined by Eve of Uprise. Then on September 9th we hit The Atria in Oshawa with Toronto’s Queens & Kings The following night we were at our home away from home – Overtime Sports Bar in Kingston with Versatile Rock. After that was done we came back home to Ottawa to headline a show at The Brass Monkey on the 24th with Innuendo, Scarecrowz, and The Dreaded Rebels. Here’s a few pics to the shenanigans!
A week after that Ryan and Bob made their way to the Dawg & Gus Podcast studio in downtown Ottawa for an interview. Listen RIGHT HERE for a chat about our new mascot Dick Guy, the Ottawa live music scene, and all things Wyntr. That was a ton o’ fun!
But by far the coolest thing we did recently was to attend SuperKyle’s sledge hockey game in Ottawa this past weekend. SuperKyle is a member of Rock n Roll Road Trips Crew, that crazy gang from Ottawa that shows unwavering support to independent bands – to the point of jumping into their cars and following a few around on tour! We were honoured to have the road crew follow us to Oshawa and Kingston last month – you know you’re doing something right when the RTC follows you to your shows! It was awesome to hang out with them along with bits and pieces of Taming Sari, Sunday Riot Club, and Late Night Trouble. This may well become a regular thing. SuperKyle is an inspiration.
Up next for us is a Halloween party at Dominion Tavern with Sunday Riot Club, Azulov, and The Lackeys on October 29th, followed by a short road trip up to Pembroke on November 26th at Lasso Live with Black Water Brigade and Beyond Driven. And in between we’ll be working on some of the new songs we’ve been writing for the next album…
We hope you’re having as much fun as we are, and if you’re not just come to our next show….we’ll fix that for you real quick 😉
Until next time,
