La Scène de la Scène

John Mullins writes a country song about losing his mandolin called (expletive deleted).Where Is John's Mandolin

Amidst the drunkeness and revelry at a Tuesday's performance last month in Summerside, a mandolin vanished without a trace and was never to be heard again. The missing mandolin has caused much heartache for Charlottetown's answer to The Riders in the Sky, so the band is putting on a fundraiser at Brennan's on Friday November 15 to buy John a new mandolin and some moonshine. So come out and help support the band. Without the mandolin they may have to resort to playing a washboard or a rubber band on a really big stick.

Dazed and Confused

Emerging emo artists, Later Daze, have released a three song E.P. The winners of the Cahill Stadium Battle of Bands in Summerside released the new CD at the East Royalty Community Center with an excellent line up of local bands like Dreams Among Stars Ripping Hammer, Lending Jane and Rocknrollpartymachine. The album features favourites from their live show like "Last Train Home," "New Years Resolution," and "Shadows Lead the Way."

Oh Boy, Another Compilation

Just in time for the holiday season, I have thrown together a brand new compilation of underground music in Charlottetown. PEILocals Vol. 1Windom Earle loves  goats features a diverse selection of bands from various aspects of the local music scene from death metal to emo. This CD contains unreleased songs from Dreams Among Stars, Windom Earle, Lending Jane, Church, and Ripping Hammer, as well as some previously released songs by Eyes For Telescopes, Port Citizen, Motel Money Murder, Tastes Like Burning, Tuesdays, and Later Daze. The CD is available for three bucks at upcoming all-ages shows.

Rocknrollpartymachine love to party.

PEI Represents at Gobblefest

The longest running independent music festival in the Maritimes has entered its ninth year, and four bands from Prince Edward Island paid a visit to Gobblefest in Sydney, Nova Scotia to bring the funk and the punk. Rocknrollpartymachine, Port Citizen, Lending Jane and Windom Earle joined forces on Thanksgiving Weekend and made a lot of noise in Cape Breton along with some of the best underground Rockandrollpartymachine loves to party artists in the region. The highlight of the event took place at an all-ages show when all of the PEI bands collectively took the stage for an allstar funk jam of "Beefchowmein." Two drummers, two bass players, two guitarists, a keyboard, a cowbell crowded on stage and didn't leave until the crowd was a sweaty mess. We tried the jam one more time at an afterhours party late that night. Sweet merciful Jesus it was fun.

Waiting to be Discovered

Canadian indy rock icon, Joel Plaskett and his Emergency are coming to Brennan's on November 16. Advance tickets for this event are available at Brennan's and Grabba Jabba for $8, but tickets at the door will be $10. If that wasn't impressive enough, Mike Campbell has booked a couple other great indy bands that almost never come to PEI. Like Halifax's King Konquerer on November 29, Local Rabbits on November 30, and National Anthem (formerly The Grace Babies) on November 1.
