Nightwood at Bands Undone, May-Jun & Wednesday’s Radio Show – S05E32


I had the opportunity to check out Nightwood at Bands Undone on Monday, January 18, 2010. It would be the first Bands Undone for 2010 and another unique performance because they were singing their stripped down versions of their songs. The band is from Montreal, Quebec and they have been together for about 10 years. Talk about how time flies by so quickly.
There will be an audio interview with Nightwood coming sometime next month as I am still backlogged from other interviews from November and December. All I will say that it will be a funny and interesting interview when it will be aired.

Hanging Out With A. Putz and R3 Ottawa Fans For Chinese Food and the Martha Wainwright Concert – S04E09

After the Martha Wainwright concert with Amanda Putz and CBC Radio 3 Ottawa Fans
I seem to be copying a certain radio host’s program name in a different form. At least it’s not “Waking Up With,” so it is not a morning blog entry. Before the Martha Wainwright concert, my twin bro and I went to Rideau Centre earlier and then walk to Chu Shing Restaurant to meet up with Amanda Putz and the winners to tickets for Martha Wainwright in Ottawa concert. I got a chance to meet R3 fans/bloggers like pbandjam, zandron, Declare, Crozon Ottawa and tommy321. If I am missing out some others, let me know. Meredith Luce and Amanda’s husband, Tim Edwards (who is Kathleen Edwards‘ brother) were also there. It was a fun and hilarious time at the restaurant as we all talked about jokes and funny stories. Lots of Chinese foods were ordered and I won’t say how much it came to. In a way, it felt like a Christmas dinner, Chinese style. Nothing can beat out a noodle dish, rice with BBQ Pork & shrimp, veggies and BBQ Chicken.
After the fine dining at Chu Shing Restaurant, we walked to The Bronson Centre for Martha Wainwright. The opening act started off with Jason Bajada. His performance was good but I didn’t know his set was 30 mins. Never expect it to be that short. The slight problem I had was the light, I was close to feeling sleepy probably because of eating lots of Chinese food and maybe they added MSG.
On to Wainwright’s performance, she was amazing and dazzling. At the begining, there was a funny scene which dealt with an object. As PG-friendly as I can be, that’s how far I will say. The R3 fans will know about it. During the performance, her mom, Kate McGarrigle came on stage and performed some songs with Martha and another set by herself. Overall, the crowd totally loved her performance and being with Putzy and the R3 crowd, it was as fun as I can be. This is probably one of my favorite event because I got to hang out with several people and enjoy it.
The photo above shows Putzy and the R3 crowd with Jason Bajada and a Martha Wainwright poster. Apology for the shadow on the bottom left.
All I can say to anyone reading this entry, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!
