Reason 1. Halifax Pop music festival ... I didn't get to see a lot of bands from this weekend but I did catch two super groovy bands to check out.
band 1... Telfer
I heard these guys rocking out from Pizza Corner and had to investigate so Laura, Ash Beattie and I went in to the Coconut Grove to have a look. When we got in we saw these guys really kicking it with some awesome harmonies and Dave Matthews influenced guitaring.
http://www.myspace.com/telfermusic --- new single is called Heaven Sent but I personally recommend all of the tracks on here.. these guys jam out hard.
I tried to embed their widget on here but I kept getting some shitty music instead of the groovy Telfer jams. Go to their myspace.
band 2... The Metric System
Reason 2. Dolemite Died
I had been in mourning for several days because I felt my post praising the most pimpenest player to ever have walked the block had somehow jinxed that bad motha. Talk about synchronicity... that shit was weird. Cheers to the man who had been rappin' before and of these rap cats made it happen.
Rest In Peace, Rudy Ray Moore -- 1927-2008
No more excuses ... I'm back.
