Live From Ottawa, It’s Said The Whale – S05E10

Said The Whale at LiVE Lounge on October 15, 2009
I know the title almost refers to Saturday Night Live’s famous line. It’s because of the venue I went and it’s sort of fitting in reminding of me SNL. I got to check out Said The Whale at LiVE Lounge and the opening acts were The Red Jets and Hannah Georgas. Said The Whale is on their Canadian tour to mark their release of their new album, Islands Disappear. It was an awesome night because I had the opportunity to do an audio interview with two of the member of Said The Whale. It will be airing on my debut radio show at CKCU on Monday. I think I will be taking over from Kristal’s Method. I hope I did a good job doing the audio interview. The venue was at LiVE Lounge and it’s like the first time to be there and I rarely listen to the station (LiVE 88.5). I wasn’t sure what to expect but the place is pretty nice and they have couches, chairs and tables. It’s a small venue to say the least.
The concert started off with a rocking Ottawa band, The Red Jets. I am not too familiar with this local band since I have gone to concerts in downtown Ottawa infrequently during the Summer and for September. There were good to starting off their set and the show.

Hannah Georgas was amazing with her performance. Her band were members of Said The Whale (minus Ben and Tyler). She played songs like The National (not the Peter Mansbridge one) and The Beat Stuff (her titled album). I got to pick up her CD for $5, which was pretty good. I’ll apologize if I don’t have much words to say about Hannah Georgas.

Onto Said The Whale’s performance. As usual, they brought up an excellent performance. They sang their materials from their new album, Islands Disappear and their previous, Howe Sounds/Taking Abalonia. I was surprised to hear some of the crowd sing and danced along to some of their songs. Hannah Georgas joined the band for B.C. Orienteering (from Islands Disappear). One of the songs they performed near the end, confetti was popped in the air. It’s nice that LiVE 88.5 is supporting Said The Whale and Hannah Georgas. Overall, it was a great night and the fans were energetic toward Said The Whale.

Make sure to check again on Monday as I will post the audio interview with Ben and Tyler of Said The Whale and it will be aired on CKCU-FM.
I took some videos during the concert but for now, here’s Camilo (The Magician) live at LiVE Lounge.
