Definitely a show I'd enjoy.
A first for me. They were at Massey Hall recently too...
Jónsi has some ridiculous pipes on him. Sæglópur jolted me pretty thoroughly.
Uplifting. Hefty. Tight as heck. A great night.
A band I just can't get into for some reason, although I know, those that like them like them a lot.
What is echo beach like? Never been there.
I believe it is far away in time.
Just east of the Molson Amphitheatre... (200-300 metres) More intimate. Sand on the ground.
Other than the intermittent Porter flights swooping over the lake to land at the island airport, it's a solid venue...for Toronto at least.
Bigger than Harbourfront Centre, (if you've seen a show there.)
And yes Nev, definitely not a band for everyone.
Waiting for Hammer to weigh in concerning Echo Beach....
Mick i know it's out of fashion but I haven't been to echo beach myself but apparently you can watch the sun go down but often there is not a soul around
I thought the beach was only for office clerks.
I'm sure Mick, Klepper nor IanSmith have any idea what we're all talking about.
Google guided me to 'Martha and the Muffins'...figured it was an 80's music reference.
That band name is such tremendous nonsense...in keeping with the era.
Marky Mark: Did you tell Ivan that when you did the safety dance together?
For those that don't know:
As per usual, the hair is amazing.
Waiting for Nev Monster to state the important Hamilton link to Martha and the Muffins. It may have started with this band but it grew to U2, Peter Gabriel, Lou Reed,.....
I would probably know if Daniel Lanois was in the band, is he connected?
Martha and the Muffins was one of the first bands Daniel Lanois produced. His sister played bass guitar in band and introduced the band to him. The rest, as they say, is history.
I run by Daniel Lanois' studio on one of my chariot routes with the kids. It looks like quite the place from the outside. Large. Eclectic features.
Old Pal sounds like a winner.
