NEWS YOUSE CAN USE

Great news, everybody. Night Comm, after several years as a three-person left-hand-keys-create-the-bottom kind of rock group, are now a four-person bass-provided-by-actual-bass-guitar kind of rock group, thanks to the addition of Nicola Cavanagh Lefevre (of Sequicons, Chick Magnets, & Tugs). We went to Edmonton a few months back to play the remarkable Chris Zuk's birthday and Christine Candice shot some pretty awesome video of the new version of the band:

HEAVEN RELEASE & IN THE NEWS

Mike Bell at the Calgary Herald took some time to write a pretty awesome story about us:

Veteran Calgary indie rockers find their Heaven in Night Committee

Tonight is the release party for Heaven at the Palomino. We're playing with Napalmpom (because we always play with Napalmpom, and we always play with the because they're the best) and Betrayers & Lad Mags, two excellent bands from Edmonton who we're very into.

Here's the Facebook link for the event. Don't watch the Blackhawks game. Come to the Palomino. Actually, come early to the Palomino, where we'll be watching the Blackhawks game.

HEAVEN – COMING

– The master for our new recordings is back from California. Heads to Quebec for pressing soon.

– The master is of nine songs we recorded this past summer and fall. 

– The songs are about being bad with money, feeling bad, feeling like a fish, a young woman in trouble (at Christmas!), being in a rock band, dealing interrogatively with ambivalent feelings for a person since they were buried at sea (answers not supplied), being surly for poor reasons, women of indeterminate ages waiting for written correspondence to arrive via the weather (I know, right?), living with the long-term consequences of being a jerk.

– One ninth of the songs are reggae. 

– Yes, exactly. Bwa ha ha ha…

FEBRUARY 15 – DICKENS PUB

Okay, February long weekend continues to get better. Before heading up to Edmonton on the 16 we’re playing at Dickens on Saturday, February 15 with The Von Zippers (Calgary’s greatest rock and roll band for twenty-ish years now. Better than Krul Hul!) Miesha & the Spanks (our spiritual sister!) and Mallard (who we look forward to learning more about for future parenthetical asides!)

 The big reason why this is exciting, of course, is Bags. (Yes, you should buy the machine in that link and invite us over.) Napalmpom are so terrified of a Bags rematch that they booked a show in Red Deer that night. You don’t have to do the same. Come early. Play Bags. Stay late. Play more Bags! Show those Napalmpom guys what-for.
