Global Pop Conspiracy Social #3

It’s Thursday again, which means that it’s time for another Global Pop Conspiracy Social. If you like your pop music all over the road, from Helmet to Hall and Oates and everything in between, you’ll like this evening. Tonight’s guest “audio selector” is Greg Davis from Soundscapes, Toronto’s answer to Championship Vinyl (the record store in Nick Hornby’s book-turned-movie, High Fidelity) and the video wall will be showing clips seelcted by Moment Factory.

I will be there with accordion, of course.

Once again, it’s at the Rotors Club — 593a Bloor Street West (upstairs), just west of Bathurst. The doors open at 9, and the cover is a mere $5.00. Yup, it’s a 19+ event.

Smokin’ Joe rides again

Tomorrow night marks the start of comedy troupe Slap and Tickle’s (the people with whom I performed last week) run at their new location, the Poor Alex Theatre. In addition to Slap and Tickle, other comedians will be performing and musical interludes will be provided by — as the poster below says — Smokin’ Joe deVilla…

The name “Smokin’ Joe” strikes me as more appropriate for an aging black blues guitarist, but the Slap and Tickle folks seem to like the sound of it.

I’m sure there’ll be some kind of after-party at one of the nearby pubs — the Green Room, the Future Bakery Patio or the-bar-behind-Future-whose-name-escapes-me. I’m sure there’ll be some post-show silliness no matter what, so if you want to have some laughs and accordion-and-beer-fueled mayhem, this might just be the place for you!

The Poor Alex Theatre is at 298 Brunswick Avenue, just south of Bloor (Brunswick is just east of Bathurst). Doors open at 8:30.
