The Strumbellas made it two for two yesterday, when “We Still Move On Dance Floors” got a Juno Award nomination for Roots & Traditional Group Album of the Year! That’s two Strumbellas’ albums, two Juno nominations, if you’re keeping track. Holy moly. Go for the Threepeat, gang! The Strumbies (as I’ve just decided to call them right now) are rubbing elbows with some damn fine company in the category, and we can’t wait to go to Winnipeg for the annual awards extravaganza so we can also rub lots of elbows… in a sexy way. Our Six Shooter crew usually does it up pretty big at the Junos, rolling around in a fancy limo and stuff, but I think this year we should either a) buy a cheap El Camino and put a hot tub in the back of it, OR b) go a little bit fancier and rent a Mini Cooper so we can go all clown car steez with everyone crammed in there. Any reader opinions on which option you think we should go for are VERY welcome. Please send us many many many emails on the subject. We have a lot of spare time, and would love to consider your feedback thoroughly.
The Strumbellas play The Dakota every Wednesday in February, with opening bands and special guests and more more more (did we mention there’s still a Grand Prize of a trip for two to fabulous Lindsay, ON up for grabs? Buy something, get a scratch card, win a vacation to somewhere even snowier!). They will also hit the road with Corb Lund in April across Ontario. AND, more good news, we now have the vinyl edition of We Still Move On Dance Floors available from www.sixshooterrecords.com or at an esteemed indie retailer near you.
