This is a great month to see Yellowjacket Avenger in Quebec – GP has three shows lined up, and the band will include Tessa Kautzman (vocals on Branden Town, Hydrothermal Vents) on bass and vocals.
October 5th: @ 80 St.Viateur East, Montreal, Quebec
October 18th: @ Kaffe 1870 Wakefield, Quebec
October 28th: @ Casa del Popolo 4873 St Laurent Blvd, Montreal, Quebec
John Tielli (CLARK the Band, Metal Kites, Rock Plaza Central) and Tessa Kautzman (whose singing features all over the latest YJA record Branden Town) collaborate as Hydrothermal Vents, and they rock. Check it out.
Yellowjacket Avenger will be performing in Montreal on Saturday, Oct 5th, at 80 St.Viateur East, along with Fall Horsie. Fall Horsie are (I’ve just learned) a quartet led by Justin Karas that performs a sort of chamber-pop with both ragtime and symphonic elements; they remind me of bits of Sufjan Stevens and Toronto’s Jack Breakfast, and I imagine the pairing of acts will be righteous. We await announcements of more shows.
Hear Fall Horsie here at their MySpace page, and read a CBC profile here.
This has been out since Nov 2012, but I just recently found it: Hilotrons‘ cover of Emergency (Double Nature, 2008). Double Nature had a definite Kate Bush feel to it, and this arrangement and vocal make that explicit. Nicely done, and some nice props given to YJA:
“One of the greatest records ever made is Double Nature, by the Yellow Jacket Avenger [a.k.a. Geoffrey Pye]“, says Hilotrons frontman Mike Dubue. “I’ve always wanted to pay tribute to this record.”
