Ever since Canadian Music week, I said that I was hungrier and wanted to experience more…. I got that wish.
A month ago,one of my good friends asked me to perform with him. We’ve been trying to do this for months. Now it’s all coming to it’s fruition. It’s a new venue for me to perform and establish all of us as well. It’s all going down this Friday. I know it’s going to turn out great since we’re out for a common goal.
Meanwhile because of this, I’ve been trying to look for gigs myself just to ride the momentum. I went to various places on my grind. And I think I may have found something. Well 2 places in fact….
First one was set up way beforehand. Not only is it a change in venue but also a totally different crowd for us…. Parlour is known as a house lounge on Adelaide, which is definitely a crowd that I’m not used to. So FBomb and myself are being brought in to not only bring an Old School Hip Hop/R&B jam but possibly bring some life and new clientele into an area which is known for it’s youngins and douchebaggery.
The Second one, I went back to my roots and went window shopping more or less. The same way I went out and got my current residency and my current monthly. So after I visited The Ossington (which was a previous target of mine), I got their contact and started shooting out an email for a meetup. The owner actually came into the bar I was spinning at for a face to face. We hit it off well and decided to try and do something for Thursday nights…. So after patiently waiting, I got an email a few days ago asking me if THIS THURSDAY was good for me. Obviously, I had to say yes just so I could establish myself there and set up something for the summertime.
Didn’t have time to set up a flyer but I did make a facebook event for it…
I know I’m sacrificing some time out of my day job for this but I know I can handle it if it’s a monthly.
So there you have it. Stepping Stones for me to work with. Let’s Get It!
BTW…. I made a new mixtape for your ears
