Today we listen to final mixing tweaks so we can move onto the mastering stage. Also, last night we figured out our opener for our 2nd album release party. Yay! We have a few shows coming up this month. We’ll be at BC Supports Music Education! A Concert In Honor of Senator Tommy Banks on Oct 22nd at Vancouver FanClub doing a 20 min set with our full band among other awesome artists such as: Pacifika, Jim Byrnes, The Matinee and Champagne Republic with hosts Vicki Gabereau and Terry David Mulligan. We’re really excited about this show also because it is in support of BC music education programs and honours a Canadian music legend. We also perform at Central Bistro again in Vancouver on Oct 26th 7pm-11pm with our full band. So much to look forward to…
I feel like it’s been a while. In the space of time were I haven’t blogged to you Sister Says has been in the studio recording percussion and also mixing. We’ve also been performing shows and going to shows. We had fun performing Aboriginal Day/Summer Solstice at Trout Lake Park (Rob also performed with our lovely and talented friend Candace Curr earlier on that day) and at Fan Club later on, at St. Andrew’s Wesley Church at Jazz Vespers for Vancouver Jazz Fest and at Car Free Days on Commercial Drive. It was good times getting a chance to listen to some of the other performers at Car Free Days, and to also attend Hilary Grist and Dominique Fricot’s (past guests on our Meet the Collective Podcast) Dual Release show with The Lion The Bear The Fox, and catch Dawn Pemberton and her band and also Star Captains perform at Vancouver Jazz Fest on Canada Day. Rob watched The Matinee on Canada Day and he might go to Kraftwerk tonight….whoo a lot of shows and a lot of inspiration for us. More picking away at the album (almost there!)…I talk about album artwork later on today with our graphic designer. Can’t wait to see what ideas she’s come up with!
