So although, sadly, we are unable to tour out east this fall, I have been VERY busy getting things happening for Querkus on the home front. While there are several shows that are in the finalization stage, there are three that are solid and ready to proclaim to the world:
Monday, October 26th @ 10 pm
Shannon’s Irish Pub – 175 Carlton St
Thursday, October 29th @ 10 pm
The Standard – 61 Sherbrook St (Hooligan’s/Eddie’s Garage)
with special guest: Cantor Dust (www.myspace.com/cantordust)
Winnipeg Art-Rock Explosion! At the Academy FDM
Featuring Querkus, Filbatross, Absent Sound, and Patrick McDowall & the Melodramatic Pop Orchestra. This will be a big a crazy multi-band art-party featuring some of the best in creative, flooring, and stellar rock and roll. Cover a steal at $5.
If you haven’t seen/heard the new Querkus full-band live set up (or did at my brother’s social last hallowe’en… that was the only previous time ever it could have been witness) you really can’t miss it. It’s quite the phenomenon and guaranteed to enthrall and floor you. Come to all the shows if you can!!
There will be free admission to both shows.
There is also a good chance we will sell the final ~10 copies of the No Direction EP at these shows so if you don’t have it, come down and get it!
At least 2 of my carefully-obtained Ontario gigs have been moved to March when we will really, really tour. Maybe for a week, 2 weeks, 3… hard to say. Depends how many shows I can book. It’s all in the planning stages of course, however there is a good chance that we may also be taking our Phantom of the Opera live original score on the road. I’ll keep you posted. If you have any suggestions as the where we should play in Ontario ot Quebec… or are some kind of angel who is interseted in actually helping to facilitate the booking or promotion of an event… please in touch with us through twitter @querkus or myspace.com/querkus or any other way you see fit.
