TO DO LIST: Tonight – Brews Willis @ Parts & Labour

Brews Willis

Just because it’s the end of August doesn’t meant that summer is over. In fact, summer can last forever, if you get Brews Willis‘ new LP Nerped By A Zircon into your music library right now. 

And what better a way to kick off our new Forever Summer than going to see Brews Willis themselves at Parts & Labour TONIGHT? Don’t put away those flippy-floppies or that pastel coloured tank top or those short shorts yet… they have at least ONE more sweaty, beer-filled, random-person-makey-outey night left in ’em! I mean, with songs called “Sun Burn Boner Boy” and “Turbo Babe Acid Hammer,” how could this not end up being one of the best nights of your life?

To get you in the mood, here’s the video for their new song “Ride The Island Baby.” You LOVE the Island, remember?! YES YOU DO!

They’ll be hitting the stage at 11:45pm at Parts & Labour, followed at midnight by Invasions, who are definitely worth sticking around for. If you’re a fan of messy fun, beachy punk music, Black Lips, PBRs, wet hair, colours, life and spilling your drink on strangers and having them hug you instead of punch you, then you should probably be there.

Vintage Zeus Juice

I found this old video from back in 2008, when we all went to a festival in Orillia called Suncrash. Neil played us some songs in the woods- a few of which went on to become Zeus songs.

Precious!

For comparison, here is the Zeus version of Marching Through Your Head:

RAIN’S WORLD #12 – POOR YOUNG THINGS

Poor Young Things

Poor Young Things enjoy sitting together

This video was recorded during NXNE. I had made some unwise choices the previous evening and had a pretty terrible hangover when it was shot.

When I had arranged to film this video of Thunder Bay boys Poor Young Things and I playing Quarters, several days prior, I didn’t realize that Quarters was a drinking game. I don’t know how this happened. But it did. Here are the results:

Poor Young Things make rock music. If you’re a fan of Teenage Kicks, you’re going to like these dudes. Here’s the video for their song “Blame It On The Good Times”, which shows Toronto a lot of love:
