11.14 at the BLACK BOX THEATRE. 8 pm. andrew + lisa duo featuring covers, LCON songs + Skeletones Four hits.
(i’ve been busy learning about sonic arts, the ear, perception, the ursound, max msp, ways to cope with dampness, varieties of cheddar, and how to buy electricity at the gas station and as a result haven’t been able to do much performing these days. thank you to the CANADA COUNCIL FOR THE ARTS for their generous assistance in supporting my learning quest (ie. masters) in Belfast, Northern Ireland!)

L CON presents THE OWLE BIRD //
In the summer of 2008, when I was 19, Jordan Howard, Cory Latkovich, Tony Wallace, Daniel Stadnicki, and I went to London, Ontario, for three days to make this record with Andy Magoffin. Though the band no longer exists, this album is perhaps the most vulnerable thing I have ever made. And so, in honour of being brave, I have decided it is time for these songs to be available on the ever-vast world wide web.
Now available via bandcamp digitally for a price of your choice or contained within a limited edition compact disc.

dear Sackville, dear SappyFest,
thank you for introducing me to taco tuesdays, for trusting me to drive your car in neutral, and for inviting me to see you perform at the legion. thank you for pointing me in the direction of the marsh, the waterfowl park, and the old broken bridge, and showing me silver lake and the joy your dogs experience when swimming. thank you for asking me questions on the radio, and braving a hurricane to go to George’s Roadhouse for the breakfast special, and testing out the new Ducky’s patio with me. thank you for calling me “darling” and “dear,” for letting me sing to you individually in the music hall, and for trusting me with a key. thank you for lending me guitars, and lending me microphones and patch chords, and for listening to me so intently when i sang for you.
i can’t wait to share all of the songs i have written over the last couple weeks.
don’t get your hopes up.
(see you in august)
