ASIST Gig Report

What an awesome night at the ASIST gig at the Wilds last night.  We played a great set to a great group of people, and none other than Molten Bronze took the stage for the second set.  Those guys are nuts.  Gunnar mentioned something about going on tour, so let's keep our fingers crossed.

We're back at Darnell's on Friday, October 17.  Come on out, have a dance, get in a fight, drink reasonably priced beer, take off your pants, whatevs.  Anything goes at Darnell's.  The tunes start at 10:30, and as always there's 'nar cover, which is the best cover there is.  RSVP on our Facebook event page.  See you there.

Some new tunes

A couple of weeks ago we played at the Pharmacy Association of Newfoundland and Labrador AGM which of course was a blast.  Eastern Audio provided the sound, and graciously offered to record our performance for the night.  Unfortunately my laptop died after the second set, but we did manage to capture most of the songs from the first couple of sets.  I've uploaded a handful right now, and will put up some more in the coming days.  Being live cuts, they're not perfect, but I think the little flubs add character to the songs.  Not that I make any flubs, mind you.  Anyways, have a listen and let us know what you think.

media

After much shagging around, I finally figured out how to embed an mp3 player on this amazing website.  As a test run I uploaded a rough cut of our version of Mr. Jones by Counting Crows, and by rough cut I mean that's about as good a version as I can mix/master given my limited resources and skill.  I'll have a few more tunes ready to post in the coming days so drop by for your listening pleasure.  In the meantime, close your eyes and imagine Chris dancing a la Adam Duritz as he sings with reckless abandon.

CIBC Run for the Cure

This morning we had the pleasure of providing live music for the CIBC Run for the Cure, which raises money for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.  It was an incredibly well organized event, with over a thousand people attending.  A big shout out to the organizers for all of your hard work, and a big congrats to all participants for braving the weather and still having a great time.  Next year's event will be held on Oct 5 so mark your calendars and we'll see you there.

So long summer...

Yeah, I know, summer doesn't officially end until September 21 but let's face it, the chances of dying from heatstroke are pretty slim from here on out.  So what the hell is going on with YYT?  Are we dead?  Maybe a little bit on the inside, but we're still on the go, and we're still playing at a venue near you.  Summer is always a bit busy for us, as Cordell spends most of his time getting close to nature in his sweat lodge, Scott provides personal protection to celebs like Greg Keelor and Patrick Roach, and Chris works on his benthic sediment collection.  Nonetheless, we still managed to play a few tunes at my sister's wedding, and had a great time playing at the Arnold's Cove Fog Festival.  This weekend we're playing both nights at Darnell's Pub, and we have a few more gigs lined up for the fall and winter.  I can't guarantee this blog will be updated regularly, but our Facebook page will be, so be sure to like us to keep abreast of all things YYT.  Stay classy San Diego.
