As we mentioned in our previous post we are working on some cool new projects at OOTS. One of the bigger ones is organizing intimate house shows, which we will then put together as cool videos to share with the world. We had our first show last night and it featured Luxury Pond & Kite Hill.
Kite Hill is the project of Ryan Carley of Ohbijou and formerly of many other Toronto / Guelph projects including Alight, We’re Marching On and Of January May. Kite Hill has been busily putting the final touches on their new record which should be available in the early fall. They have plans to hit the road this fall with Lisa Bozikovic, so watch for details of tour dates near your hometown.
The folks of Luxury Pond should be familiar to fans of Snowblink, as they both feature Dan Goldman and Daniela Gesundheit. With Luxury Pond Dan is the principle songwriter, while with Snowblink Daniela crafts the tunes. Last night’s show was the first Luxury Pond show in at least two years and Dan has been busily putting together new material, including writing three songs yesterday in advance of the show !!!
Over the next few weeks, we will be posting some video of both performances. We are also going to be putting together a blog post explaining a bit about how to put together your own house show, or at least outlining how we are doing ours. But in the meantime, here are a few photos from the performance.
