La Scène de la Scène
by Stephan MacLeod

Wet Dream

You may be asking yourself, "What have those poster boys for emo, Dreams Among Stars been up to lately?" Well, let me fill you in. The group has been working hard with a new album recorded by Sean MacGilvary of The Burdocks, and their first tour. The band's emo sound has slowly grown into a dramatic trance rock experience with keyboards and a guitar played with violin bow. And recently Mark Gaudet, the drummer for the band has traded his sticks for keyboards and organ. The new drummer for the band is Dan Seese.

Shirt Alert

Fresh new merchandise has emerged from the Charlottetown indie music scene. And what better way to keep warm this winter than with a t shirt from your favourite local band, Dreams Among Stars. Now you can be young and attractive like the boys in the band. Or if you're into active wear, I printed up a batch of Windom Earle baseball t shirts featuring my hairy face, a busted wrist, and a microphone. Dig it?


Supercar's 60th Anniversary Reunion Tour.

In case you missed it last year, power-pop legends, Supercar, are reuniting again over Christmas break in order to rock your jingle bells. On New Years Eve at Baba's Lounge, Supercar will make an appearance at Port Citizen's final show before Brodie Read leaves the Island. For the youngsters who don't remember when Supercar dominated Charlottetown's all-ages scene back in the 90's, the band will also be playing an all-ages show on December 28. Check for more info on both shows.

House Of Rock
 A Charlottetown Branch of the House of Rock has been established on 361 Kent St. Following in the tradition of Cape Breton's House of Rock, the local branch will be a haven for band practices, recording, and various creative projects. The living room is equipped for intimate rock shows, and house parties. During the Christmas break, the house will be hosting a fundraiser for Anderson House. Drop off a toy to be donated to kids as Christmas presents, and you could be treated to a free concert featuring the best local bands in town.

What a Bastid

Young Clean Bastid
Halifax's DMC champ, Skratch Bastid is returning to Baba's for a night of turntable dynamics that will blow a whole through the dancefloor. At Close to the Coast this year, Bastid's set consisted of clever mixes of Axl Rose, Africa Bambatta, De La Soul, and The Alan Parsons Project all seamlessly layered together with stellar scratches.
