Thank you, everyone, for listening and supporting us. We really enjoyed making the one you are listening to.

Pam Wheaton owns one of the coolest stores, @Heartbreak Boutique. Her love of Vinyl has been strong since I met her. In her shop, she has a record player and at home the neatest jukebox filled with rad tunes.

We sit down to talk with her about the Joel Plaskett, a few of her favorite bands, the movie One week, with Gord Downie, we chat about Tom Petty, Broad City, Abi and Ilana we love you, we discuss a few things we have watching and much more.

We also talk about the importance of supporting local venues and their initiatives. We will be doing what we can to help Santos and the restaurant @Taco Pica overcome the noise complaint fine they have gotten.

Live At the Imperial Theatre, October 25th, 2017, was an experience I will never forget.
Living in New Brunswick my entire life, Joel Plaskett is a very familiar name amongst the folks here and all over Canada for that matter.
Joel is one of the most incredible singer-songwriters I have come to have the honor of seeing live. There is something so humbling about last night’s show I can’t seem to stop thinking about it.
The show itself started at 7:30 and any show at the Imperial Theatre is a good one in my opinion. The audience was full of energy and the first band, ” Villages” From Dartmouth was absolutely incredible. They are a folk group from Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Their sound is very traditional and stage present completely wonderful.
Around 8 PM the main act opened and wow, what a night. They played a mix of new and old material and had the crowd laughing, learning, reflecting and truly having a great time. I have had the opportunity to see a lot of bands and even some of my favorites, but I have to say this overall was one of the most special and humbling performances I felt really honored to attend.
One thing I really enjoyed was the ultimate experience of attending. The poetry portion of the show he dedicated to Gord Downie was an honor to be present at that. A proceed of sales of the track on the album that includes that piece will go to Gord’s charity. I think that is so fucking rad!
Speaking of Gord, I own the movie One Week, which features an appearance by Joel and Gord. The lead character is played by Joshua Jackson and features some of the most beautiful imagery, Canada.
I definitely urge you to check that film out.
They also closed with ” The Waiting” by Tom Petty, which I have included below because it’s a damn good song.

I urge you to check out more from Joel on Spotify and his facebook page can be found here.
New album info here.
