HEY DUDE(TTE)S, I'm playing a show with my side-project, LAKE COUNTRY VHS, on April 12, at C'est What - 5-Star Trailer Park is on at 9, and we'll be bringing some alt-pop-country to you around 10pm
Additionally, we have a live record for free Download/stream:
A few months back, we spent a snowy weekend at a cottage in northern Ontario. After two days of tracking, the best takes were selected and what remains is an album of original material captured completely live with just four microphones and no overdubs. The results are equal parts scrappy and exciting!
So without further ado, we present to you the self-titled debut album from Lake Country VHS.
You can listen to/download the complete album for free here: http://lakecountryvhs.
Lake Countrty VHS is:
Adam Brown, baritone guitar
Jordan Fine, lead guitar and vocals
David Gilgan, drums
Edward Maher, lead vocals and guitar
Gavin Maher, bass guitar and vocals
Thanks very much. Hope you enjoy.
P.S. We will be playing our last show for a little while on Thursday, April 12th at C’est What (67 Front St. E., Toronto). We will be sharing the stage with our friends Five Star Trailer Park. Show starts at 8.30 p.m. Hope to see you there! http://www.facebook.

It's a very exciting time here. I'm here. You're here. In the words of JessieSpano "I'm So Excited." (Put that in your 1992 pipe and do something appropriate with it.)
