RAVE REVIEWS FOR THE DEEP DARK WOODS

Praise for The Place I Left Behind, the new album from The Deep Dark Woods, is streaming in from coast to coast, kind of like a very long stream that spans coast to coast… a river if you will, but “rivering in from coast to coast” sounds weird. For a band identified for their “Saskatchewanness,” […]

WAGONS SET TO RELEASE RUMBLE, SHAKE AND TUMBLE

The title Rumble, Shake and Tumble effectively captures Wagons‘ rowdy roots-rock style, a Red, White and Blue palette of rock ‘n’ roll, country, cabaret, psychedelia and soul. That’s the Australian Red, White, and Blue of course! Rumble, Shake and Tumble, out August 16, bursts forth with massive open chord riffing in the Tom Petty-ish “Downlow.” […]

THE BEAUTIES’ FIRST EVER WESTERN TOUR

Y’know, I would definitely say that I have a pretty well non-existent sweet tooth. I am one of those assholes who says things like “this is good cake… it’s not too sweeeeeet”, and my idea of a midnight snack is a bit of spicey lime pickle and brie on a water cracker. That being said, […]

TRAMPLED BY TURTLES WILL TRAMPLE YOUR TURTLE

You may have noticed at the end of the Whitehorse segment of this newsletter above, that I am now replacing the phrase “blow your mind” with “trample your turtle” in my day-to-day lexicon. Ok, maybe you didn’t notice until now, and you are about to scroll back up and re-read that part. Either way, this […]

JUSTIN RUTLEDGE IS A GOLDEN GREEK GOD

Hot off his acting debut in the Michael Ondaatje play based on his novel, Divisidero, and a more recent turn on an episode of Degrassi High (OMGGGGGGG), Justin Rutledge returns to the stage to star currently in the Canadian performance debut of Pulitzer Prize finalist Sarah Ruhl’s Eurydice, a modern retelling of the ancient myth […]

MARTIN TIELLI EXHIBIT AT GATE 403

Torontonians can stop by The Gate 403 (403 Roncesvalles Avenue) to check out recent art works by Martin Tielli. There might even be a catalogue available to purchase works, like last time. If you’re interested, let me know, shauna@sixshooterrecords.com.

SIX SHOOTER SIGNS THE DEEP DARK WOODS

We’re proud to announce that The Deep Dark Woods will release their third full-length record, The Place I Left Behind, on August 2, 2011 on Six Shooter Records. Yayee! A follow-up to 2009’s deep dark dirge, the award-winning Winter Hours, the new album is the band’s first self-produced project. The Place I Left Behind is […]

SIX SHOOTER SIGNS WAGONS

More hot fun for Six Shooter Records this summertime, with new additions to the roster from here, there and even other hemispheres. Rolling in from Melbourne, Australia is Wagons, a band with a wild-eyed, audience-taunting frontman (ie. a regular Australian), Henry Wagons, and an instrument-swapping set of musicians who keep the shows just on this […]

JENN GRANT MEETS THE ROYALS

Much ado has been made of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visiting our fair country, a visit covered by no fewer than 1300 media types, and lemme tell ya, that ain’t nothing! Shakespeare joke! Humour fit for Royals! Our very own Jenn Grant slammed back some royal jelly shots, donned her Royal Elastics sneakers, […]

LUKE DOUCET ANNOUNCES CANADIAN TOUR DATES

Don’t miss Luke and his awesome band the White Falcon this summer! It has just occurred to me that Luke should probably dress up as Falco for Halloween this year. Mostly because my mind works on Cockney logic, and Falco sounds kind of like Falcon to me, and every time I read the name of […]

SUMMER FESTIVAL RECAP

With just a few festivals under our belt, there is already lots to report, what with Jenn Grant meeting the Royals (as reported above, they are both very fancy, and apparently quite fits in the athletic sense, not the British, “whoa that bird is FIT” sense), Sarah McLachlan joining the White Falcon’s set at the […]
