You know how talk shows end up having guests that become regulars. They’ll make appearances on a routine basis, even if they don’t have anything going on. Once you’ve written a blog for a while, that starts happening with certain acts, too. And some of those bands you might actually know directly. Met them at a gig. Exchanged emails with them.
Sidney York is one such act. I’ve mentioned them a number of times, met Brandi herself (though I doubt she’d remember) when she was performing with Beekeeper. I follow them on twitter. They follow me.
Well, having just finished up at CMW and SXSW, they’re doing another tour of western Canada, so I wanted to make sure everyone knew the details – dates, venues, etc. They’ve also got some cool t-shirts that they’ll undoubtedly have at the shows, or you can order them online too.
Interestingly, the gig here in Edmonton is with Jenesse And the Instaband. Jenesse, of course, is the name of one of the sisters in Sister Gray. Which with a name like that can’t be a coincidence. But I’ve popped her an email to confirm.
