This Thursday May 29th - Fox Cabaret

We are really excited to be playing the Fox Cabaret this Thursday night.  We'll be opening the night for headliners Sex With Strangers album release party.  Also on the bill is a favourite band of ours ACTORS and War Baby.  2321 Main Street, doors at 8.  Combine the Victorious is on a 8:30, plus it is a FREE SHOW!  So there are no reasons not to attend.  It will be a great night of music, without a doubt.

Isabelle and I are keen to try out a brand new song for this show.  We both feel as though it might be the first single from our next album and there's nothing like playing a song live to get a feeling for how it works.  Of course we'll also be performing some of our strongest songs off the Crumbling Hearts ep as well, though we've given each of them a little special update to make everything feel fresh and exciting.

If you are reading this and possess a camera capable of taking decent video footage we'd love for you to come down and film the set.  I'm hoping to put together a new video from the live show for our next release, so you'd be doing us a big favour is if you could help out!

Live shows!

Just wanted to say what a great time we had performing as part of A Change of Frequency this past Friday at the Chapel Arts.  The whole night was a pleasure, with several good bands, a lovely atmosphere and all falling on our pal Todd Simko's birthday (May 2nd).  Todd would have been 48 this year.

This was the second show Isabelle and I have played as a duo again and it went really well.  Our set opened with our version of the Calvin Harris song "Feel So Close" and then  progressed through an updated version of Crumbling Hearts, California, an electricfied version of Brotherhood that I think we're going to include on the upcoming album, and closed with Glasgow.  The response was incredible from the audience and I think it may have been the best we've ever performed a couple of those songs.

After our set our friend Jordy Birch played a couple stripped down Guilty About Girls songs (and I snuck onto stage to accompany him on the drums). The rest of the night was spent enjoying the music of Sunday Morning, Sex With Strangers and We Found a Lovebird, all of whom are great bands in their respective genres.

MCing the night's festivities was none other than Hatch Benedict of Sex With Strangers.  He was his usual entertaining charming self and ensured things flowed well.  Special thanks must be given to Minna Simko for organizing this year's A Change of Frequency once again, and Rod Grim for acting as stage manager.  The entire event was fun and entertaining.


Next up we'll be performing at the new Fox Cabaret on Main Street, opening for Sex WIth Strangers at their album release party May 29th.  It promises to be an over the top spectacle with a killer line up.  Sex With Strangers, Actors, War Baby, and Combine the Victorious.  Not only are we part of an impressive music night, but the whole thing is FREE!  Not to be missed.  The Fox is a gorgeous venue, and this one is not to be missed!

Cheers, stay well.
