Free Show @ The Reading Well Tonight

The promoter of this has decided to make it free since the headliner, Erin Tobey, couldn't make it. Here's the post, from PEI Locals:

Thursday, April 20th
The Reading Well Bookstore
87A Water St. Charlottetown
5PM-7PM - All Ages - Free

[ one man band. guitar + lots of pedals&loops. sounds like gy!be on drgz ]
Hacksaw Jim Thuggin
[ dangerous electro-noise ]
The Barn Kats
[ cute all girl folky-pop ]
Jeremy Richard Experiment
[ indie-folk duo ]
Dan Frampton
fucking party
Bob Deziel
get drunk and shoot things
Literature from This Distro Will Self Destruct
[ no music. only books and zines from the distro will be for sale (cus it's like totally at a bookstore!) ]

side notes:

- unfortunately due to the size of the reading well only 30 ppl will be getting in. so come early and hangout. matt dixon (that's me) will be spinning records before and show and between sets.

- the reading well is really small but pretty easy to find. directions are as follows: follow queen st. toward the water. turn left onto water st just before the delta hotel. the reading well is on the left on the first block. #87a. it's small. look for it.
Can't beat free, and having shows at the Reading Well is a wicked way to get people into the store, which is one of the most under-the-radar local businesses around. If your idea of PEI music is Lennie Gallant and the Chucky Danger Band then you'll be in for quite a little eye-opening show if you do drop by.

Columns, a.k.a. Joel Court, a.k.a. Matt Good's papperazzi decoy, is one of the best innovative guitarists around. The stuff he can do all on his own is pretty mind-boggling. He mentioned on his MySpace blog that he has some demos that aren't up yet, hopefully those will show up soon as well. I don't know much about the rest other than that Hacksaw Jim Thuggin' has the wicked name of any PEI band I can think of. They should go on tour with the Dean Malenkos.
