Julie Fader 009
Monday’s show was sort of jammed packed with the Julie Fader (photo displayed) interview, the gigs I attended on the weekend and CBC Radio 3’s 2009 Bucky Awards short-list being unveiled.
Started the show by playing a classic TV theme from the animated show, The Raccoons. I got to talk about Doctor Who and the second 2009 Special, The Waters of Mars. I’m sad that it is the beginning of the end for David Tennant as the famous Time Lord. The sonic screwdriver was heard on the show.

Here’s the audio interview with Julie Fader. You can press play to listen or download it.

Monday’s show, press play to listen.

After the radio show, I went to Canteen Art Shop + Gallery for Bands Undone. This time, it was Vancouver’s Parlour Steps. I think CBC Radio 3 has played the band and from what I checked out at the session, they were very good. They were a rocking and easy-going band. I can’t think of words at the moment as I’m still under the weather. I didn’t know the band has been around for a decade and one of the members joined two years ago.

In case you missed it, you can read the previous blog entry from about the Most Serene Republic, Think About Life and YSP!WSD! show at this link. I got various links from the Apt613 members using my video and others. I know writing a back to back entries would be confusing.

A Library Fades Into The Loving Machine – S05E16

Library Voices at LiVE Lounge on October 30, 2009
Happy Halloween!
Friday night, I went to LiVE Lounge to check out three music acts but I did not know there was a fourth act to the list. That was In-Flight Safety. It’s my second time to go to LiVE Lounge. I forgot to mention in my previous post when I first went to LiVE Lounge, I encountered a radio host from LiVE 88.5. At first, I didn’t who she was as I rarely listen to that station. She said I was from CKCU-FM, which surprised me but she was kind to have me stay there and wait until I got to interview Said The Whale. Her name is Chelsea Miller. She seems like an awesome radio host and it’s nice she’s getting to know Canadian indie acts like Said The Whale and Library Voices.
OK, onto the concert. It started off with Julie Fader. Her set was soft, mellow and filled with folk styled music. She was joined by members of In-Flight Safety for some parts of her performance. All I can say is that she’s very talented. If you didn’t know, she’s also with the Great Lake Swimmers. I got a chance to do an interview with Julie Fader which will be airing sometime in November.
After Julie Fader was Ottawa’s The Love Machine. As usual with them, they were always rocking and very energetic. They still had a good crowd for their set.
Lastly, on to Library Voices, they were totally amazing because they kept jumping around, breaking a tambourine, going to the crowds and etc. They were totally crazy and the crowd just loved it. It was awesome when Library Voice got Julie Fader and In-Flight Safety to sing their final song. Even the radio host was probably surprised by their performance. I had an opportunity to do an interview with two of the members and will be aired sometime in November.
The funny thing was that it’s the second time I went to a concert where the bands say that Ottawa is the final concert of their tour. It must be lucky to have bands end in the Nation’s Capital.
Lastly, one funny note before the concert at LiVE Lounge, I saw a couple of members from Library Voices using a MacBook Pro. It’s the one that I currently have, the 13″ model. It’s pretty funny that it’s almost like Apple central.
